I absolutely love spicy eggs and veggies in the morning! This breakfast is easy to throw together and very filling. There is also significantly less starch because of the corn chips.
I have been experimenting with making lattes, and this spiced latte is my favorite so far!
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1/2 onion or small onion
- 1/2 red pepper
- 1/3 cup salsa
- 1/3 cup cheddar cheese
- Handful of corn chips
- 1/2 lime
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Cilantro or parsley to garnish
Heat a skillet on low heat and chop the pepper and onion. Melt a bit of butter in the skillet and toss in the chopped veggies.
While these cook, whisk the eggs and milk together in a bowl with a fork. Once the onions and peppers have softened and browned a bit, add the eggs. Season with salt and pepper.
Cook until almost done, and then add the cheese. Turn the heat down while you combine the cheese.
Once the cheese has melted, turn the burner off and add the salsa, stirring until combined.
Transfer to your plate and garnish with cilantro or parsley. Add the chips and squeeze lime juice over everything. Serve hot.
As you can see, the spiciness really depends on your salsa, so if you like your eggs a bit hotter, add some hot sauce (I like using Cholula).
For the spiced latte you only need a few simple ingredients. I make my coffee in a single serving using a plastic Melita coffee maker (non electric) that sits on top of my mug. To foam the milk I use a tiny milk frother from IKEA that was about 3 dollars. Totally worth it!
- 1 scoop coffee
- 1 pinch nutmeg
- 1 pinch cinnamon
- 1/2 pinch cloves
- 2 pinches cardamom
- 1/2 pinch chili powder
- 1/2 cup milk
Stir the spices and coffee together in the filter before pouring your water in.
While your coffee brews, heat the milk in a measuring cup on the stove. Once it begins to bubble around the edge turn, turn the burner off.
When your coffee is done brewing, add your desired amount of sweetener, then transfer the milk to a tiny bowl. I use a two-cup measuring cup. Then froth the milk for about 30 seconds and pour it into the coffee!
