I replaced the Manchego cheese with just 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese. It was still delicious without all that extra cheese.

I don't eat egg dishes but I cooked this for a friend and she said it was amazing. I went w/ extra cilantro and added some cayenne pepper.

Very tasty indeed! I'd recommend putting more parsley and cilantro, and more chili. The next time I'll serve this with green tabasco sauce. :)

I thought it was a great pick-up for the morning. I have to admit though that the avocado and bell pepper was already a favorite of mine.
