Scrambled Eggs with Tortillas

"Years ago a friend of mine made eggs and tortillas for breakfast while I was visiting. I've been hooked ever since. My family doesn't ever want scrambled eggs. They always want eggs and tortillas. In fact, the only time I make plain scrambled eggs is when I am out of corn tortillas. It's a very simple recipe but it's very good."

  1. I scaled the recipe down and made it with one egg, 1/2 T. milk and 1 flour tortilla. Wow! Was it good! I highly recommend this recipe.
  2. Becka! I never want plain old scrambled eggs again! These were delicious. The tortillas got nice and crispy, and made the eggs so much more interesting. They were perfect,and we'll be having these every sunday for breakfast from now on! We're tortilla junkies, lmbo. Thanks!
  3. Loved this recipe. Made sure I allowed the tortillias to crisp up nicely on both sides before adding scrambled eggs. Added fresh spinach & cilantro to the shredded cheese once the eggs were cooked. Covered and let rest for 2 mins. Served with chipotle cream and salsa. Delish.
  4. I found this to be a very quick, and easy recipe. I did add a dollop of sour cream on top. It was a hit!!!
  5. Another easy, simple and good dish from Zaar chefs. This was good. I did add some tabasco to the eggs before cooking to spice it up a bit. Had it for dinner!!


I love Recipezaar! I have found many great recipes on this site! Since I've found zaar, I've been spending more time making recipes from zaar than I have from my dozens of cookbooks. What can I say....zaar members post darn good recipes! I wish that I could spend more time cooking but I tend to keep meals simple because I work full time as an Microsoft Exchange E-mail Administrator and I spend the rest of my time taking care of my three year old toddler. He demands so much of my time that I don't have as much time to cook as I used to. My favorite hobbies are collecting recipes and photography. I am an amateur photographer and I take pictures at almost every chance that I get. The picture that is posted on this page is a self portrait.
