5 – 15 Minutes


  • 1 chipotle chile in gluten-free adobo (optional)
  • 4 pasture-raised organic eggs
  • Fresh cilantro
  • ¼ cup diced tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons diced green chiles
  • Scramble spice blend (cumin - granulated garlic)
  • 2 Mi Rancho 100% corn tortillas (optional)
  • 2 Cara Cara oranges
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • Vanilla-maple blend (maple syrup - vanilla extract)
  • ¼ cup raw almonds



Prep and cook the scramble

  • If using, finely chop the chipotle.
  • Crack the eggs into a medium bowl; season with salt and pepper and lightly beat.
  • Coarsely chop the cilantro.
In a medium pan over medium heat, warm 1 tablespoon oil. Add the tomatoes, green chiles, spice blend, and as much chipotle as you like; season with salt and pepper and cook until thickened, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the eggs and half the cilantro. Cook, stirring, until the eggs are set, 2 to 3 minutes.


Warm the tortillas

If using the tortillas, on the stovetop directly over a flame, or in a dry pan over medium heat, warm the tortillas until just pliable, 30 seconds per side.



Transfer the eggs to individual plates; garnish with the remaining cilantro. Serve with the tortillas, if desired (for a more paleo-friendly version, omit them).


Prepare the smoothies

  • Peel the oranges. Cut them in half crosswise, then separate into segments. Discard any seeds.
In a blender, combine the oranges, almonds, almond milk, vanilla-maple blend, and 1 cup ice. Season lightly with salt and blend until smooth.



Pour the mixture into glasses and serve.
