Scale

Ingredients

  • 12 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon each: ground cumin, fine sea salt, freshly-cracked black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small white onion, peeled and diced
  • 1 jalapeño, seeded and finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 large handfuls corn tortilla chips, roughly crumbled
  • 2/3 cup salsa, homemade or store-bought
  • 2/3 cup shredded Mexican-blend cheese, plus extra for serving
  • toppings: chopped fresh cilantro, diced red onion, sliced avocado, diced tomato, extra salsa

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, cumin, salt and pepper.  Set aside.
  2. Heat oil over medium-high heat in a large sauté pan.  Add onion and jalapeño and sauté for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the onion is soft and translucent.  Add garlic and sauté for 1-2 additional minutes, stirring occasionally, until the garlic is fragrant.
  3. Add the egg mixture, and reduce heat to medium.  Cook for 5-6 minutes, stirring frequently, until the eggs are completely scrambled.  Stir in the tortilla chips, salsa and cheese.  Cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Taste and season with extra salt and pepper if needed.
  4. Serve warm, garnished with your desired toppings.  (I say the more, the merrier!)
