This made for an amazing impromptu breakfast this morning. I saw it reviewed and thought it looked good. Plus, I had all of the ingredients on hand....yay! It was delicious. I really loved the garlic, chile peppers, and cilantro in the eggs and the tomato topping was so yummy. Easy and tasty. Thank you!

This recipe is sensational. The flavours, the colours, the ease of preparation, the finishing splash of lime. Seriously 10 out of 10. Our daughter and son-in-law are visiting this weekend, so I made a family batch. There were ongoing sounds of yum, yum, yum!

This was delicious! We had it for dinner along with some bacon and a salad. I used seeded wheat bread and sliced the tomatoes to serve alongside the eggs. But I stabbed a bite of tomato with every bite of eggs and toast anyway. I love that the colors of the ingredients - cilantro, garlic, red chili pepper - are the colors of the Mexican flag. I also added some minced white onion, speaking of flag colors! I toyed with adding some cheese on top, but it really didn't need it! PS I doubled everything for two of us. DH loved it, too!
