Huevos a la Mexicana (Mexican Style Scrambled Eggs)

 
In Mexico is a tradition to have eggs for breakfast and we have a very rich repertoire of how to prepare eggs. Huevos a la Mexicana is one of those dishes that everyone knows and it always makes me feel back at home in Mexico. I think they are the most popular breakfast dish in Mexico and I understand why, it is a very comforting dish, full of flavour and you can make it as spicy as you want.

Its ingredients are just a few, but they are the most important ingredients that a Mexican kitchen must always have, tomatoes, onions and jalapeños.

They are easy and quick to prepare and you can have them with some warm corn tortillas and refried beans and I assure you that this dish will put a smile on your face.
