Summer Recipes with Hunt's Tomatoes: Tex-Mex Frittata

Frittatas! Yes, it’s a food that I can scream my love for from the rooftops. I would hold a stereo over my head outside Frittata’s window. Frittata, I can’t do without you. As you can guess, frittatas are a regular occurrence in my home. I love coming up with new ingredients to put in them because you really can’t go wrong. For a Memorial Day brunch with my mom and my in-laws, I wanted a morning of easy cooking.


A tex-mex frittata, a breakfast dish with great flavors that I knew my father-in-law in particular would enjoy, was completely in order. The wonderful thing about frittatas is that they can be enjoyed at any time of the day, even when frittatas are typically a breakfast or brunch dish. Who doesn’t love breakfast for dinner too, right?

Anyway, I was a little cautious with the spice since not everyone at brunch enjoys the heat like I do, but those tex-mex flavors were absolutely in attendance.


A tex-mex dish generally consists of onions, green peppers, and tomatoes, with some spice. I went to Walmart and purchased all ingredients, including Hunt’s Diced Tomatoes in the sweet onion flavor. When it comes to canned tomato products, I pick Hunt’s every single time. I will never tell my family recipe for pasta sauce, but I will tell you that it includes cans of Hunt’s tomato products. They’re simply the best and when you just want an easy #DinnerDone, that’s crucial.

Summer Recipes with Hunt's Tomatoes: Tex-Mex Frittata

I frequently find myself connecting with Hunt’s on Facebook, Twitter, and especially Pinterest, as well as their website and for recipe inspiration. (I do run a food blog, after all!) Hunt’s is a brand I have trusted for years to bring a true contribution to my meals. One of the many reasons I love Hunt’s Tomatoes is that they use the flashsteam method for peeling their tomatoes. Check out this process here: It’s actually really interesting!

Enjoy the rest of your week, friends, and happy eating!

Summer Recipes with Hunt's Tomatoes: Tex-Mex Frittata

Tex-Mex Frittata


  • 8 large eggs
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • 1/2 cup (about 2 ounces) grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 medium red onion, diced
  • 1 medium green pepper, diced
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can Hunt's Diced Tomatoes, sweet onion flavor
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • Handful of kale, chopped
  • 1/4 cup (2 ounces) crumbled goat cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 400*F. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, half-and-half, 1/4 cup of the Parmesan cheese, chili powder, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper.
  2. Heat oil in a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add onions, pepper, and tomatoes, cooking until onions are close to translucent, about 4 minutes. Add garlic and kale, cooking until fragrant, 1-2 minutes.
  3. Gently fold in egg mixture. Cook until partially set, about 3-5 minutes. Sprinkle goat cheese and remaining Parmesan cheese over top.
  4. Place pan in oven and bake until frittata is puffed and golden, 20-25 minutes. Let cool slightly, then cut into wedges and serve.

    Now that looks really good! Thanks for the recipe, I’m going to pin this for later.

  2. Krystal — May 29, 2014 at 12:49 pm

    The goat cheese is a great addition. This looks awesome!

  3. aimee fauci — May 29, 2014 at 12:50 pm

    So a frittata is sort of like a quiche? I am not sure I have ever had one but it looks good.

  4. Robin (Masshole Mommy) — May 29, 2014 at 12:53 pm

    That sounds amazing! We are big fans of Mexican food in our house, so I will have to try this!

  5. Tyana D. — May 29, 2014 at 12:57 pm

    Yum! I love frittatas. I can’t wait to try this recipe. Hunt’s is one of my go-to’s too. You can say its the star of my famous chili. But I was wondering, can I skip the spice and still get the same flavor? If so, what would you suggest as a milder alternative?

    • Jennifer — May 29th, 2014 @ 12:59 pm

      Oooo, I love chili. I use Hunt’s in mine too! You can easily sub for nutmeg and cumin. It’ll be more of a deep, earthy flavor, but delicious.

  6. Tyana D. — May 29, 2014 at 1:01 pm

    Perfect! I’ll be sure to pin this for later. 🙂

  7. Kiwi — May 29, 2014 at 1:29 pm

  8. That looks delicious and actually looks like something I could eat on my strict diet. I can’t wait to try this out.

  9. I have never made an egg sigh in my cast iron skillet. So is this like a spiced up version of quiche?

  10. Heather — May 29, 2014 at 1:50 pm

  39. Caghrey West — May 30, 2014 at 7:32 am

    A beautiful Blog. Thank you for sharing. Glad I found you on Blogging to Success!

  41. Janel (A Mom's Take) — May 30, 2014 at 9:41 am

    I recently planted a garden with loads of tomatoes. I was worried I wouldn’t know what to do with all the tomatoes that will probably end up being ripe all at the same time. I’m definitely going to make this frittata for my family, looks super good.

  42. Jessica — May 30, 2014 at 1:10 pm

    I’m a Texas girl. So, this looks completely delish to me! Gonna have to give it a try – thanks!

  47. Nicole @ Confectionalism — May 30, 2014 at 7:40 pm
