Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Evenly spread potatoes onto baking sheet.
  3. Drizzle potatoes with extra virgin olive oil. Season with adobo seasoning, kosher salt and pepper and toss to coat evenly.
  4. Place potatoes into the oven. After 15 minutes, remove potatoes from oven and toss. Return to the oven and cook for an additional 15 minutes, or until golden brown and tender.
  5. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat with olive oil. Add ground beef to the skillet. Begin to brown the beef and break it up with back of the spoon.
  6. While the meat is browning, season with ground cumin, chili powder, garlic powder and salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Continue to cook, breaking up with the back of a spoon until meat is no longer pink in the center, (about 5-7 minutes.)
  8. When the meat is browned, add tomato paste and chicken broth. Stir it in and cook for 2 more minutes. Then, remove the meat from heat and set it aside to cool.
  9. In a bowl, crack the eggs.
  10. With a fork or whisk, whisk eggs vigorously until combined and frothy.
  11. In a skillet, Melt ghee on medium heat. Swirl the pan so that the ghee is evenly distributed on the bottom of the skillet.
  12. Pour the whisked eggs into the skillet. Immediately reduce the heat to medium/low.
  13. Using a spatula, gently and slowly scramble the eggs. As the eggs begin to set, use the spatula to push the eggs towards the center. Continue to push eggs towards to the center until the eggs are cooked through and fluffy, about 4 minutes.
  14. Finish with kosher salt and pepper to taste.
  15. To serve, combine a single-serving of potatoes, taco meat and eggs into a tupperware. Garnish with cilantro, pico de gallo, and lime.
