    Simplication hack:
    For each egg, use a tablespoon of fresh pico de gallo salsa. It consists of the required finely chopped tomato, onion, and hot peppers.

    For the version I make, I de-seed a Serrano pepper and mince, cut the tomatoes in half and grate them into the pan and add garlic. It’s the way my dad would make it. Such good flavor.

    I don’t like eggs, but I read this and will try it for my other half, who does. Just wanted to comment that if if you do rub pepper in your eyes, the fastest way to take off the sting is to lick a pinch of salt. Works for eyes, but not any other body part, as far as I know. Why does that work? Don’t know that either.

    Very quick, easy, and tasty recipe! The fiancee loved it. Of course, I had to add a cup of shredded Monterey Jack cheese during the final moments of cooking.

    I have to post my family’s version of this. I’ve been eating it since I was a little one, and everyone who has tried it loves it as well. I believe my grandmother simply calls it “Huevos con chile”.

    6 large eggs
    1 small yellow onion, chopped fine
    1/4 or 1/2 jalapeno pepper, depending on taste and heat of pepper, crushed in a mortar and pestle with 2 tbsp of water
    1/2 to 2/3 c Tomato sauce
    Cheese (varies. In my opinion, the mexican queso at the supermarket is the absolute best, with pepperjack being the second. Cheddar and Colby jack are good, too)
    Salt and Pepper to taste

    Fry the onions in oil until light brown. Crack each egg into the pan, use spatula to mix around gently, but do not overmix. When eggs are almost cooked, add the jalapeno mixture. Add tomato sauce and stir. Eggs should be a light orangy-pink.

    Let it all heat up again, turn the pan off and top with the cheese, a pinch of salt and pepper. My grandmother lets it sit while heating up the flour tortillas, and when she is finished, the cheese has all melted.

    These are the best eggs I have ever eaten, period. I hope you get to try them someday!
