Fajita Scramble

(4 servings)    Printable Version
  • 1/4 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/4 chopped onion
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon fajita seasoning
  • 1/8 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup shredded Mexican cheese (Monterey Jack is a nice choice)
  • 4 fajita-size tortillas
  • Chopped fresh cilantro
  • Salsa
Saute vegetables in large frying pan with 1 teaspoon butter until soft.

Beat eggs, seasoning, hot sauce, and milk with a whisk or fork until well blended. Scramble eggs with vegetables while cooking until semi-firm. Add 1/2 cup of the cheese and cook until melted.

Warm the tortillas by placing in a microwave for 25 seconds. Place 1/4 of the scrambled egg mixture in each tortilla and roll up. Top each fajita with the remaining cheese and heat in the microwave until the cheese melts. Sprinkle fresh cilantro over the fajitas and serve with salsa on the side.

This is a popular dish at the Carisbrooke Inn Bed and Breakfast in Ventnor, New Jersey.

Rating (out of 5):  

I made this recipe for my husband and I this morning. It was good, but I added chopped chicken. I pan-fried it until golden-brown and then added the peppers, sauted those for a bit and then poured in the egg mixture. The one thing I wanted to mention about this recipe though is that you CANNOT taste the fajita seasoning or hot sauce AT ALL. The measurements are too small! I even went ahead and added WHOLE teaspoon of the seasoning and a HALF teaspoon of the hot sauce and neither my husband nor I could taste it at all. It just tasted like scrambled eggs with peppers and chicken. My suggestion: If you want to get the "fajita" aspect of this dish at all, add a lot more the the suggested amounts for both the fajita seasoning and the hot sauce.
