Huevos a la Mexicana (Mexican Style Scrambled Eggs)

I think they are the most popular breakfast dish in Mexico and 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.
