  1. This pretty much duplicated the eggs that my MIL makes when DH and I visit Mexico. I halved the recipe for one serving, and I used cooking spray on the pan instead of butter. I added in a bit of chopped smoked ham in the name of cleaning out some leftover items (the ham didn't have anywhere better to be, lol). I also added a bit of fresh ground pepper with the salt. I served this with a couple slices of queso blanco and some warm corn tortillas for a nice quick comforting breakfast. Thanks for posting! Made for The Honeys for ZWT8
  2. Another 5 rating from me. I can only echo all that the others have said and add that it made a perfect quick and easy dinner this evening. I added some shredded cheese on top before taking them out of the pan. Yum!
  3. This is a very nice way to make scrambled eggs. I cut the recipe in half and substituted a green onion for the onion. Made for ZWT8
  4. Good eggs. I made these as directed and thought that they were simple and good. Thanks Bethie for a nice breakfast. Made for ZWT8 - Mexico/Tex Mex.
  5. Quick, easy and has a nice little kick to it, just how I like my eggs. Sprayed the pan with oil and skipped the butter. Made for ZWT8.


  1. Nice and spicy breakfast eggs. I used a hot banana pepper instead of the serrano (can't get them here) and scaled this down for just me.
  2. I made this for our breakfast this morning, but used Pablano Peppers instead of serrano (my serrano plant simply isn't producing heavy enough yet). Wow, what a really tasty treat to start the day with!!! Thank You Bethie for sharing a great breakfast with us.
