  • If you are looking for a spicier version of Mexican Scrambled Eggs, you may want to add extra seasonings to the recipe such as chili powder, cumin, and cayenne pepper.
  • When selecting a cream cheese, make sure to use a full-fat cream cheese for a creamier texture.

  • Substitution 1: Replace bacon with tempeh bacon for a plant-based alternative. The benefit of this substitution is that it is a healthier option, as it is lower in saturated fat and cholesterol than traditional bacon.
  • Substitution 2: Replace cream cheese with ricotta cheese for a lighter option. The benefit of this substitution is that it is a lower fat option, while still providing a creamy texture to the eggs.

Vegetarian Variation Replace the bacon with 4 ounces of diced mushrooms, and use 1 tablespoon of olive oil instead of butter.

Cheesy Chorizo Breakfast Potatoes: Delicious potatoes cooked with chorizo, onion, bell peppers, and cheese. This savory side dish is the perfect accompaniment to the Mexican Scrambled Eggs, providing a flavorful and filling meal.

Huevos Rancheros: This classic Mexican breakfast dish features eggs served over a warm corn tortilla and topped with a flavorful homemade tomato sauce. The combination of the chorizo, potatoes and huevos rancheros will provide a hearty and delicious meal that can be enjoyed any time of day.


Q: How can I make the eggs spicier?

A: You can add more seasonings to taste such as chili powder, cumin, or hot sauce. You can also add jalapenos or other spicy peppers to the mix.

Q: How long should I cook the eggs?

A: Depending on the type of egg dish you are making, cooking times can vary. For scrambled eggs, cook them over medium heat for about 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally. For fried eggs, cook them over medium heat for about 3-4 minutes on each side. For boiled eggs, bring a pot of water to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes.

Nice eggs. I think I might have added a little too much cream cheese because they were still a little wet....but they still tasted great. Thanks for sharing this nice keeper, Dee.
