My Fiesta Huevos got their name from my Spanish speaking husband during our first year of marriage. I would make these eggs on the long lazy weekends together in our first little apartment that we had together in Texas. All nostalgia aside, I have been making this recipe for years and we still love it.

I love serving these eggs with some whole wheat toast or a toasted English muffin. For extra fun serve with some Cholula hot sauce or your favorite salsa. 

To make fiesta huevos just heat a non stick frying pan over medium heat for several minutes until hot.

While pan is warming up chop the onion, red pepper, tomatoes and cilantro into small pieces.

Add your olive oil to the hot pan. Mix in the onion, red pepper and tomatoes. Sprinkle with the salt and fresh ground black pepper. Cook for about 3 to 4 minutes stirring frequently.

Crack the eggs into your pan and quickly scramble the eggs and vegetables together. As the eggs cook make sure to scrape the bottom of the pan so they don’t stick. Also, make sure to stir them very gently otherwise they will break into little tiny pieces. You are aiming for billowy, cloud-like pillows of eggs.

Then serve with chopped cilantro on top.

Sometimes I add the cilantro right into the mixture at the same time that I add the eggs. While other times I like to have the cilantro fresh and sprinkled on top. It is good both ways.
