Ingredients

Eggs

1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter
4 ounces (1 cup) shredded Mexican blend cheese
1 small (1/2 cup) tomato, seeded, chopped
2 tablespoons diced green chiles

Toppings

1 cup salsa, warmed
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup sliced green onions
4 (8-inch) flour tortillas, warmed, if desired

Directions

Beat eggs, salt and pepper in large bowl with wire whisk until well beaten.

Melt butter in 12-inch nonstick skillet until sizzling; add beaten eggs. Cook over medium heat, lifting slightly with spatula to allow uncooked portion to flow underneath, until eggs are almost set (4 to 5 minutes). Add cheese, tomato and green chiles, stirring gently until heated through and cheese begins to melt (1 to 2 minutes).

To serve, spoon eggs onto individual plates. Top each serving with 1/4 cup salsa, 2 tablespoons sour cream and 1 tablespoon green onions. Serve with warmed tortillas, if desired.

Recipe Tip

- To seed a tomato, cut in half crosswise. Carefully remove seeds with sharp tip of knife.

- To ripen tomatoes, place them in a brown paper bag. The tomato emits ethylene gas which speeds the ripening process.
