This is very quick, easy and delicious. From Chatelaine magazine.
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup salsa
- 1⁄4 cup cheddar cheese (or to taste) or 1⁄4 cup monterey jack cheese, grated (or to taste)
- Heat salsa in frying pan over medium heat.
- Crack in the eggs, sprinkle on the cheese, cover and cook for 3 to 4 minutes (or till eggs are done) on medium-low heat.
This really hit that "Whats for lunch?" quandary right on the head! Wicked fast and oh so good. I used a wrapped slice cheese and it cooked right into the salsa which might not be beautiful but it sure tasted great. For 235 calories this is a win-win dish for sure.
Do you make this all the time? You should probably give me your home address. I'll come for breakfast.
This is quite an amazing dish. As other have already pointed out, it's almost more of a concept than a recipe. You can use nearly any kind of salsa and any kind of cheese and still end up with something delicious.<br/><br/>Both the salsa and cheese can be added "to taste" without much affect to the end result. However, the indicated ratios (1/4 cup salsa per egg) are excellent.
