Green Eggs and Ham - Mexican Style

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by BecR2400

This is a simple and delicious Mexican version of Green eggs and Ham. Yes, the eggs are green, but if you love salsa verde like I do, this is a good thing! Enjoy! Good with a side of warmed fresh soft tortillas.

!Yo soy Sam! !Sam soy yo! Added to my Best of 2011 Cookbook! Perfect recipe all around! Love the raw tomatillo/avocado salsa. What I did: fresh locally made chorizo from the natural food store (no bad stuff in it). I used about half of the chorizo sausage, cutting it into 1/4" slices then cutting those in half. Served with corn on the cob, steamed green beans, locally made flour tortillas (the tortillas are a must with this dish to either scoop up the egg mixture or make tacos) and anasazi beans. Perfect but then again what else would I expect from Bec R's recipes? PS I usually don't eat sausage/ham but made an exception this time. Here is the recipe I like to make my own cheater's sausage meat (ground beef, turkey, chicken): Recipe #100408

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat olive oil in a medium-sized skillet over medium heat. Add the diced ham or chorizo and saute briefly until lightly browned.
  2. Stir in the salsa verde and cook until hot.
  3. Crack the eggs directly into the pan with the sauce (no need to whisk first). Stir the mixture with a spatula to mix in the sauce and to lightly scramble the eggs.
  4. Cook gently over medium-low to medium heat, stirring and scraping the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  5. Remove from heat when the eggs begin to set, but are still moist, about 3 minutes.
  6. Sprinkle with snipped fresh cilantro, to garnish. Serve immediately.
  7. Good with a side of warmed fresh soft tortillas.
