Mexican Eggs

Something different for breakfast

When I came up with this recipe, I wanted something different for breakfast but didn’t have anything specific in mind or much in the fridge. I know that huevous rancheros has a spicy tomato sauce, but I don’t always want a breakfast that has a tomato base. Sometimes I want something without sauce.

Raid the fridge recipe

The first time I tried to make Mexican eggs for breakfast, l used some leftover taco mince, salsa, and a leftover pepper. Nothing fancy or too complicated, just doing something fun with our taco leftovers. After some experimentation, l landed on a recipe that delivered everything I wanted. The spicy beef mixed with onions and peppers makes this a quick, easy and tasty option for brunch with friends or an easy weeknight meal. I’ve portioned this recipe for two people; if you want to feed more people, just double the recipe.
