One of our favorite recipes are papas a la Mexicana.
What ingredients do I need for Mexican style eggs?
This is a very simple recipe that uses common ingredients that you most likely already have on hand such as:
- White onion
- Roma tomatoes
- Vegetable oil
Is it spicy?
Yes, it is spicy because it contains jalapeño. If you don’t want it too spicy I suggest removing the white membrane and seeds from the jalapeño.
How to make huevos a la mexicana
Chop your veggies. Also have your eggs cracked into a bowl and beaten.
Heat up the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Then add the onion and jalapeños. Stir often. Cook them until softened. This will take about 5 minutes.
Then add the tomatoes and cook for about 3-4 minutes.
Add the eggs. Stir often with a spatula until eggs are set. This will take about 7 minutes. Salt to taste.
They should look like this when finished.
That’s all there is to it. Pretty easy right?
Make yourself a breakfast taco by spooning the eggs into a warm corn tortilla. Yum!
