Huevos con Verduras

My Nana rarely ate scrabbled eggs. She liked her eggs over easy and ate them with mustard and ketchup with a bolillo. But when she did make scrambled eggs this is how she made them. I remember coming home from an early shift around 10am and her asking me if I was hungry. Yes! So she started to make me this dish, which I love! I was waiting and went to look over her shoulder so I could smell the verduas cooking. it looked a little odd. So I did what no one ever dare do, I questioned her cooking. The eggs looked weird and smelled a little off. So I said "did you put soap in that?" She turned to me with eyes of fire and said "eres loca, tu no sabes a cocinar!" Translation : "you are crazy, you don't know how to cook!" And so she dished it up with beans and flour tortillas. I laughed and then took a bite. Sure enough it tasted weird. I told her to take a bite. Yep there it is. She started laughing as she had used dish soap instead of oil to make the eggs. She never said sorry but she made the next batch extra good!!!

Funny thing this morning after breakfast and doing all the posts I called my mom and asked her what she as doing, it was around 11am. She said "making breakfast." I said "What are you making?" She said "huevos con salsa!" I laughed. I reminded her that my Nana called them Huevos con Verduras!!!

ps - my mom use to keep the dish soap and the oil under the sink next to each other. I keep the two far away from each other! :)

2 Eggs
1/2 Anaheim Green chile finely diced
1/2 Yellow chile finely diced
1/8 White onion finely diced
1/2 Tomato finely diced

I do not really have measurements for you on this one. You can see how much I used in the picture above. You can not really go wrong with how much of the veggies you put in.

  1. Dice all veggies
  2. Saute them in a little cooking oil until translucent, salt and pepper to taste
  3. Scrabble 2 eggs, salt and pepper to taste
  4. Cook until eggs are cooked.
  • Serve with beans, queso fresco and corn or flour tortillas!
Here's to some good food!
