Shakshuka Recipe with Red Enchilada Sauce

It’s amazing how one ingredient can be used for so many different, flavorful dishes! This Shakshuka recipe uses a packet of Red Enchilada sauce, which would normally have you thinking comforting enchiladas. But, this blogger put her creativity to the test with this enchilada sauce packet to create this warm, flavorful, and delicious recipe for Shakshuka.

From the Blogger: “One night after work, I followed the recipe on the Classic Fajita Simmer Sauce packet. It called for only four ingredients: beef strips, onions, bell peppers, and a pouch of the fajita sauce. I literally tossed them all in the sauce. 15 minutes later, my fajita was on the table. It was incredible. For the Mild Taco Simmer Sauce, I did something a bit differently. I soaked a salmon fillet in the sauce, baked it at 375°F for 15 minutes and served it with some homemade pico. That was an amazing dinner with only two ingredients for the entree!”


Preparation Time5 min

Cooking Time15 min


  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 cup onion, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 pouch Simply Organic Red Enchilada Simmer Sauce
  • 1 (14.5-oz) can fire roasted diced tomatoes
  • 6 eggs
  • Fresh cilantro and avocado for serving
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

  2. Heat up a 9-inch cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add beef, onion, and bell peppers. Use a wooden spatula to quickly break the beef into small pieces. Stir and cook until the beef is no longer pink, about 5 minutes.

  3. Pour Simply Organic Red Enchilada Simmer Sauce into the beef mixture, followed by diced tomatoes. Stir and mix well.

  4. Make a “well” using your spatula, crack an egg into the “well.” Repeat this step with the rest of the eggs. Turn heat down to medium. Let it cook for about 2 minutes.

  5. Transfer the shakshuka to oven and bake for 7 minutes, or until the egg white is set.

  6. Garnish with fresh cilantro. Serve with avocados. Enjoy!

I LOVE shakshouka. Mostly because it's so easy to make, and when I never feel like making something complicated in the mornings. I've never tried it with avocado, though. I'll have to try this )
