READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by justcallmetoni

My love of eggs - for breakfast, lunch or dinner - is no secret. So when I came across this one I knew it was a likely winner. Have not tried it yet but posting it with the original ingredients. I will most likely reduce the calorie count in my own rendition.

Very good! I used the stovetop option. This was flavorful and a had a nice little kick from the chili pepper. Thanks for sharing!
