Ingredients needed

Huevos con jamon is a simple breakfast recipe that uses just 6 common ingredients which include jalapeño, onion, ham slices, eggs, oil and salt.

If you want to make it even easier you can omit the onion and jalapeño. However I prefer to include them because it adds extra flavor and some spice.

I got my ham at my local Mexican supermarket however you can use any thin sliced ham.

What is the most common breakfast in Mexico?

I asked my husband this question and he had several answers. He says that a typical Mexican breakfast could be anything from the recipe I’m sharing today to chilaquiles with a fried egg on top to camote con leche (sweet potato with milk) to atole de avena (Mexican oatmeal).

What I really love about Mexican breakfasts besides them being absolutely delicious is that they also tend to be very economical typically using up any leftovers or produce before they go bad.

Stir the eggs around constantly until they are cooked through. This will take just 2-3 minutes.

Then, remove the skillet from the heat.

That’s all there is to this easy Mexican breakfast recipe.

I like to serve these Mexican scrambled eggs and ham with a side of refried black beans to make it a complete and filling breakfast.

And for my husband I also warm up some corn tortillas. For him this meal wouldn’t be complete without tortillas!
