“A hot breakfast meal that's definitely a new favorite of mine to make in the morning. A different way to make eggs interesting and delicious again with a little southwestern influence. Personally I prefer mine with a hotter salsa to liven things up as well as mushrooms mixed into the salsa. A modified recipe from one on Foodnetwork. I've also upped the amount of salsa based on the review and I think mushrooms added to this would be great as well.”
