      A yummy, easy breakfast for me and my DH this morning! I did scale the recipe back to 2 eggs. Thank you!

      Excellent! it comes together very quickly which is so nice for breakfast (it was made in less than 5 mins). Lovely flavor and quite healthy as well. I made a diabetic version using whole wheat tortilla in place of chips and no sour cream. I totally agree with Cookiedog, this would be good for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

      Just the way I make them - in fact just did for breakfast this morning! The only change I make is to use a spoon to make a hollow in the salsa, drop in a pat of butter then add the egg. We like them with the whites set but the yolks left runny. DH says it look pretty rude on the plate but sure doesn't hesitate to eat his fair share. ;-) Good eats!
