Mexican-Style Scrambled Eggs

When you are always rushing in the morning, you can save this healthy recipe for your breakfast on the weekend. However, if you do a little planning, it is well worth it. Prepare all the ingredients the night before so you just have to crack the eggs and put the prepared ingredients in the pan the next morning for a quick healthy breakfast.

Serves 4
Total time: 20 minutes (including prep time)


Ingredients :

  • 6 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup baked tortilla chips (2 ounces), broken into ½-inch pieces
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoon unsalted butter or olive oil
  • onion, chopped medium
  • red bell pepper, stemmed, seeded, and chopped medium
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 jalapeno chili, stemmed, seeded, and minced
  • 2 ounces Pepper Jack cheese, shredded (1/2 cup)

Whisk together the eggs, tortilla chips, salt, and pepper. Melt the butter in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat; coat the entire pan with butter. Add the onion, red pepper, garlic, and jalapeno and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the eggs and cook while gently pushing, lifting, and folding them from one side of the pan to the other until they are nicely clumped, about 2 minutes. Quickly fold in the cheese and remove the mixture from the pan. Delish!

One egg provides the highest quality protein found in any food for our daily diets. They provide all of the essential Amino Acids or “building blocks” our bodies need to keep us energized and maintained a healthy weight. In fact, research shows that eggs eaten at breakfast can keep us satisfied without snacking between meals until lunch time.


While many people think the egg white has all the protein, the yolk actually provides nearly half of it. The cholesterol is all in the yolk; there is none in the white. You can make your choice as to how much of the yolk you want to use in your healthy cooking.

Fried Eggs


This is another easy way to cook your eggs. It takes 10 minutes or less to make this healthy meal. I use 4 eggs, 1 tablespoon of olive oil or unsalted butter and salt(optional) and pepper.

Heat a 12 inch nonstick skillet over the lowest possible heat for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, crack the eggs in 2 small bowls (2 eggs in each bowl). Add the oil to the hot skillet, swirling to coat the pan. Add the eggs, sprinkle the eggs with salt (optional) and pepper, cover, and cook undisturbed for 2 minutes. Check the eggs and, if necessary, continue to cook, covered until the eggs have cooked through as desired, up to 3 minutes longer.
