"I love a little pep to scrambled eggs and this recipe, for me. is just right Easy straight forward recipe. Lovely served with warm corn tortillas and some refried beans. I like it just as well with 3 Korn toasted bread and mixed pepper stir fry. It is good as a light supper too. Play with the recipe. It is lovely to add some chorizo sausage. Perhaps some salsa on top mix some sweet peppers in and don't cut back on the cilntro. The recipe was originally from the New York Times by Martha Rose Shulman with some adjustments by me."

This is a tasty recipe that will see many repeats here! I didn't have fresh jalapenos on hand so I used pickled jalapenos, oh yum! Made for the Cinco de Mayo Food Photo Event.

mmm tasty scrambled eggs, loads of flavour and so easy, it made a delightful Saturday night supper with a piece of sliced turkey/cranberry meatloaf, leftover in the freezer.  I finished it with shredded jalapeno havarti cheese.   I will be making this again, thanks for posting.
