Mexican Style Scrambled Eggs

These eggs are flipping fantastic!  I do not always love eggs, but these are so good.  I found the recipe in my Cook's Illustrated cookbook, I seriously love the Cook's Illustrated cookbooks, and this recipe is another fabulous one.  I changed the recipe a little to accommodate my family's taste buds, and they liked it!  Here's what I did

6 eggs
2 oz tortilla chips, crushed
1/4 t salt
2 oz pepperjack cheese
1/2 jalapeno, diced
1/2 onion, diced
1 T butter

Melt 1 T butter, then add in the onion and jalapeno.  While these are cooking, mix together the chips, the salt and the eggs.  Add the eggs to the jalapeno and onion, then when the eggs are done, add in the pepperjack cheese.

This made four servings, and each serving was 276 calories.  Aaron gave this a 9, Owen gave it a 7 because he thought it was too spicy ;), and Noah and I gave this a perfect 10.  Noah helped me make this, it is so simple and easy.  We'll be having these a lot!

  1. I'm not sure I understand the addition of the chips? Does this not make them crunchy eggs?? But they do sound good. Love you, mom
