    this was good but if you kinda fry the tomaotes and onions and the other ingredients in the butter (or oil) first and then add the eggs you get more flavor from them. just somethign i've learned.  -  05 Jun 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This dish went over really well at our house, Geri. I sauteed my onions and peppers first, because I prefer them to be "uncrunchy". I beat the eggs with a bit of sour cream, added a few drops of Tabasco Chipotle Pepper Sauce and used a Mexican blend cheese. We didn't have the jalapeno, so I used some diced green chiles instead. Keeper recipe. Thanks so much~  -  13 Aug 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    very good! I added a little milk to the scramble to make 'em a little fluffier. Also, sprinkled a little Southwest seasoning.  -  03 Mar 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
