This is a Spanish and Portuguese breakfast dish that is really yummy. We have it for dinner at times too. I don't really know how it is even pronounced!
1 Tablespoon butter
1 Tablespoon milk or water
½ teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
¾ cup shredded Monterrey Jack cheese
½ cup salsa (drained)
¾ cup crushed tortilla chips
Heat butter in a large nonstick skillet, over medium heat. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Pour mixture into the pan and cook, stirring occasionally. Just before eggs are set, fold in cheese. After they reach desired doneness, stir in salsa and tortilla chips.
There are several variations out there--some recipes use tortillas rather than crushed tortilla chips, or they throw in guacamole or sour cream. You can be creative and use whatever you think will be tasty.
If we have it for breakfast, I'll usually do some hash browns along the side, but if we do it for dinner, maybe some Spanish rice and black beans.
