Do you want Mexican food for Breakfast?  Well Huevos a la Mexicana is the way to go.  If you ever wondered why the word Mexican is in the name, well the reason is because this recipe calls for Jalapenos (green), tomatoes (red), onions (white) and those my friends are the colors of the Mexican Flag.  Enjoy!  

Shopping List:

  • 6 Eggs (Free Range)
  • 1 Spanish Onion
  • 2 Tomatoes Large Red (Vine Rippend are best)
  • 1-2 Jalapenos, whole (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp canola/olive oil blend (do not use extra virgin for cooking as it has too low of a "smoking point". That means it will start breaking down "smoking"/ burning at a low temp and become bitter)
  • 1 Clove Garlic 
  • 1 Avocado (Ripe)
  • 1 Pinch Salt, Kosher or Sea Salt (do not use table salt/ iodized salt is not healthy)
  • 4-6 Cilantro leaves, fresh
  • 4-6 Corn or Flour Tortillas 

Equipment List:

  • 1 Large saute pan (frying pan, like you would cook eggs in)
  • 1 Cutting Board
  • 1 Chef knife   
  • 1 Wooden Spoon (or heat resistant Spatula for cooking)
  • 2 Meduim Size Bowls
  • 1 wisk (for wisking the eggs, can use a dinner fork)
  • 1 Cup (Dry Measure)
  • 1 TBSP (Tablespoon Measure) 

Ingredients:

  • 6 fresh eggs
  • 1/4 cup onion, chopped 
  • 2 fresh tomatoes, diced
  • 1-2 Jalapenos chopped (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 fresh garlic minced
  • 1 Avocado
  • Pinch Salt
  • Fresh Cilantro leaves, chopped
  • Corn or Flour Tortillas

Directions:

  1. Heat olive oil in a large saute pan on medium high heat.
  2. Add the onions, garlic and Jalapenos brown them for a minute or two.
  3. Add the chopped tomatoes and let them cook for a few minutes on medium high until they are somewhat cooked and mushy and some of the moisture has evaporated. It's okay if the tomatoes brown a bit.
  4. Crack the eggs directly into the pan with the sauce. Add salt.
  5. Stir the mixture with a spatula to mix in the sauce and to lightly scramble the eggs. Remove from heat when the eggs are cooked to the desired consistency. (Note: If you are using a cast iron pan, remove the eggs from the pan and put into a serving bowl. Otherwise the eggs will continue to cook in the heat of the pan.)
  6. Sprinkle the eggs with cilantro.

Serve with heated tortillas.
