Scrambled eggs with corn tortillas are a traditional mexican breakfast. Now, I can’t speak on behalf of the whole country, but at least in the north of Mexico, this dish is really traditional. Our mom always used to make this for breakfast, on school mornings.
It is a wholesome and filling breakfast that tastes great. And you can get creative while cooking it.
Now, something very common is to add some ketchup on top, after the dish is ready, because it give them an extra touch of flavor that is just great. Also, “sopitas con huevo” as this is called in spanish taste great with ketchup because eggs in general go great with ketchup as well.
Now, these mexican scrambled eggs with corn tortillas are made differently all over the country, but this is the way we make and love them. We add some white onion and some Anaheim chile, or italian pepper, as they call it sometimes, which is spicy but only a little, so it doesn’t feel overwhelming.
Now, we actually really like adding some melting cheese on top, while cooking and mix it so it melts. A lot of people also mix in some fresh cheese, after cooking, and it also tastes great like that.
