Southwestern Frittata

Southwestern seasoning is a great spice blend that packs a punch, with flavors of chipotle, paprika, and garlic. Not only is it delicious, but adding it to this tasty ground beef frittata takes zero effort. Finish it off with cherry tomatoes on top for sweetness, pull it out of the oven, and dig into the best brunch ever.
