Love this! Here's the kicker...I cut & picked fresh zucchini, green peppers, tomatoes & cilantro right out of my garden & chopped it up. I used only a quarter of 1 of my **Super hot red peppers & made my fresh pico. Added a little cumin & a couple of cloves of garlic, followed directions after veggies were sauteed w/ the egg, but when I put it on top of the flour tortilla I poured more pico over the veggies. Talk about yummy. I will definitely make this again. The aroma of fresh cilantro & pico was energizing. I took a picture but no place for it. You can pretty much add what you want. If i would of had an avocado I would of chopped that up too. Thanks for the recipe!
This was really good! I added in onion and a little cayenne pepper and used flour instead of corn tortillas. I also had no idea what the recipe was talking about with cooking the eggs so I just cooked them separately and it turned out fine. Excellent recipe!
