Huevos en salsa verde. Eggs scrambled in a green chile sauce made with jalapenos, tomatillos, and onions.

  • Yield: Serves 2 to 3.

INGREDIENTS

  • Olive oil
  • 1/2 pound tomatillos, papery husks removed and discarded, rinsed, roughly chopped
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • 1 fresh or canned jalapeno chile pepper, minced (more or less depending on how hot the pepper is, and how much heat you want)
  • Splash of lemon or lime juice
  • 4 to 6 eggs
  • Salt and pepper
  • Some chopped fresh cilantro for garnish

METHOD

1 Heat a tablespoon of oil in a medium-sized skillet on medium heat. Add the chopped tomatillos, onion, jalapeño chile pepper, and a small squeeze of lemon or lime juice. Cook on medium to medium-low heat (you want to gently cook, not brown) for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the onions have softened, and the tomatillos are no longer bright green.

2 Add the eggs directly to the pan (no need to whisk first). Break up the yolks with your stirring spoon. Cook gently, stirring and scraping the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat when the eggs begin to set, but are still moist, about 3 minutes. Serve immediately. Sprinkle on cilantro for garnish.
