I grew up on Huevos Rancheros (Christmas breakfast tradition at abuela’s!), but when I visited Mexico my host-mother informed me that Huevos a la Mexicana were more popular there–and just as delicious! This is a quick, easy recipe that’s great for breakfast or dinner. I should also mention this recipe follows the Real Food Rules for clean, healthy eating, which I have reposted here. The post goes into more details about the ingredients allowed on a non-processed food diet.
- Half a small onion, diced
- 1-2 jalapeno or serrano peppers, diced
- 1 medium tomato, diced
- 4 eggs, beaten
- Oil for sauteing
- Salt and pepper
Saute onion, pepper and tomato in about a tablespoon of oil over medium heat, just until they begin to soften (vegetables should still be crisp). Pour in the eggs, season with salt and pepper, and scramble until set.
Accompaniments: beans, avocado, tortillas, rice, salsa, cheese, salad (nopales would be nice!)
Yield: 2 servings
