After years of not eating eggs and dairy, I have now re-introduced those things back into my diet….albeit a tiny bit, less than once a week….but enough to no longer consider myself vegan.  One thing that I love to make is what I call my “Cowboy Eggs”.  This is a simple, yet delicious dish that you can whip up in no time.



1 large  jalapeño (seeded and diced

1 egg

1/8 cup shredded cheddar (VERY sharp!)

1/4 large avocado

1 corn tortilla – torn into pieces

1 heaping TBL. salsa (I use my own homemade)

1 TBL chopped fresh cilantro

slight splash EVOO

salt and peppa

Serves 1

Begin by cooking the  jalapeño in the olive oil.  Add corn tortilla and cook until soft.  add egg.  Let set for 1 minute, then scramble together with other ingredients.  Add salsa.  Turn off heat.  Add cheese.  Add cilantro.  Toss chopped avocado on top.

 Season to taste with salt/pepper

That’s all there is to it.  However, you can also add garlic and onion, if you want, some spicy hot corn relish, black olives….anything you’d like.  Serve this dish up hot with some contrasting citrus, and you’re all set.  Cowboy eggs.  Tex-Mex breakfast at its best.
