"There are a lot of recipes for Mexican Eggs but this recipe is a bit different. We really enjoyed it for Sunday Brunch. It is lovely served with warm corn tortillas. Great for a liget dinner too. You may make it ahead up to where the tomatoes are added and cooked then just add eggs just befor serving."

These aggs are divine!!! A really tasty, peppy egg dish I will be making often. The only change I made was I used grape tomatoes that I quartered up and tossed them in the skillet at the same time as the eggs. Thanks for sharing this here.
