Are you tired of the same breakfast day after day? Try our Southwest Scramble! It’s chock full of fresh veggies, black beans for extra protein and fiber, and a touch of jalapeno for a bit of heat. Serve it in warmed tortillas, or forget the added carbs and plate it with a bit of sausage and fresh fruit. Your taste buds will love it, your partner will crave it, and your body will thank you for starting the day with a healthy choice. 

PREP: 10 minutes
COOK: 10 minutes

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup white onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 teaspoon jalapenos, diced
  • 1/4 cup canned black beans, rinsed
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon Mexican oregano
  • 1/4 cup Mexican cheese blend

DIRECTIONS

  1. Melt butter in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, salt and pepper; set aside.
  2. Add onion, peppers and beans to skillet and cook until softened and onion is translucent, about 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add garlic and stir; cook about 1 minute.
  3. Pour egg mixture into skillet and let it set, stirring occasionally, about 4 minutes. Be careful not to let the eggs get too dry. Once they are almost cooked through, sprinkle cheese over top, cook 1 more minute. Remove from heat and serve!

TIPS: You may want to garnish this with chopped fresh cilantro, a squeeze of lime, a dollop of sour cream or a dose of salsa for added flavor.
