Huevos a la Mexicana – Mexican Scrambled Eggs

huevos a la Mexicana - Mexican scrambled eggsMexican scrambled eggs aka huevos a la Mexicana – Mexican scrambled eggs has bright colors and a dash of additional flavor that regular old scrambled eggs that other nations don’t offer.

Mexico was always one of those countries I wanted to visit, but stepping foot there was fuller of smiles than I anticipated. Though my stay was brief and I didn’t travel the length and breadth of the country, the people, culture and ultimately, the cuisine stuck with me long after I got into a plane and left those shores. The week in Baja was certainly not enough to fully enjoy all that this varied country has to offer. If you’ve been to Mexico, what would you want to see and do again? Or where would you go for a first time and why?

Saying you’ll go back to somewhere and actually getting there are two very different things with so much of this planet calling out to be seen, but Mexico holds a special place so it’s only a matter of time before I give in and get back there.

This take on the simplest of recipes – scrambled eggs – is a whole meal that could be eaten at any time of day and served with black beans and tortillas, on buttered toast or with some rice. The flecks of green and red are there to remind you of that stunning country.
