What makes these scrambled eggs Mexican, you ask? Before you start cooking, line up your diced jalapeño, chopped white onion, and fresh tomatoes in three neat little rows. That's right—the ingredients are the colors of the beautiful Mexican flag! Now sauté those veggies, fold in some scrambled eggs, and you've got a traditional, spicy, and filling Mexican breakfast dish to serve alongside warm tortillas and refried beans.
