Start the morning off with a twist on traditional scrambled eggs. Go South of the Border with this spicy combination that is reminiscent of heuvos rancheros. A spicy tomato sauce tops softly scrambled eggs. There are no dry eggs allowed here. Roasted poblano peppers and fire roasted tomatoes give this dish a smoky flavor.
Serve in a bowl and top with all of your favorite toppings for a breakfast that will provide all of the energy needed for whatever the morning brings.
Eggs have gotten a bad rap in the past, but they are packed full of protein and can be part of a balanced diet when eaten in moderation.
Follow these simple tips to ensure soft, moist scrambled eggs:
- After adding the eggs to the pan, give them a few seconds to set before stirring.
- Be sure to cook the eggs over medium low heat so that they don’t cook too quickly and dry out.
- Remove the eggs from the heat a few seconds before they are done so that they stay moist.
