A savory version of a classic Dutch baby topped with all the Tex-Mex goods!


2 large eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup butter, divided
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
Pinch of salt
1/2 ripe avocado, sliced
2 sunny-side up eggs
1-2 ounces crumbled queso fresco
Fresh cilantro, garnish
Chili powder, garnish


1) Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Melt butter in the microwave in short bursts. Add two tablespoons of the butter to a 12 inch cast iron skillet. Place skillet in oven to preheat. Reserve 2 tablespoons of butter for the batter.

2) Add the milk, eggs, flour, salt, and a pinch of chili powder to a blender and blend on high for 30 seconds until the batter is very smooth. Pulse in the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter very last.

3) Remove skillet from the oven and quickly pour in the batter. Return to the oven and bake for 15-18 minutes. With a smaller skillet, you might need to bake it longer as your pancake will be thicker.

4) When pancake is done baking, remove and top with sunny-side up eggs (or over easy) diced avocado, fresh cilantro, crumbled cheese, and a sprinkle of chili powder.
