  • 4 eggs
  • 1 (15 ounce) candrained chickpeas (can use less if you like)
  • 12 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 ounces olive oil
  • 2 ounces grated cheese (my husband likes sharp cheddar on his eggs)


  1. Simmer sauce in a skillet along with jalepeno juice, olive oil, sea salt.
  2. Carefully break whole eggs into the simmering sauce.
  3. add the chickpeas and sliced jalepenos.
  4. Allow eggs to firm up and whiten.
  5. You can serve the eggs like this or flip them in the sauce carefully and cook on the other side depending on preference.
  6. Remove some sauce and chickpeas and place eggs on top.
  7. Sprinkle some cheese.
  8. Server with yogurt if prefered and fresh pita bread.
