Ingredients Needed

  1. 2 tablespoons (30 ml) olive oil
  2. 1 cup (200 g) Ropa Vieja
  3. green bell pepper, diced
  4. onion, chopped
  5. 1 clove garlic, crushed
  6. 1 cup (240 g) canned tomatoes with green chilies, drained
  7. 5 eggs
  8. cup (16 g) chopped fresh cilantro

Cooking Instructions

Heat the olive oil in a large, heavy skillet and add the Ropa Vieja, diced pepper, onion, and garlic.

Saute them together, stirring often, until the onion and pepper are becoming a little soft.

In the meanwhile, measure your tomatoes and beat your eggs.

Okay, your onion is translucent, and your pepper's starting to soften.

Add the tomato, stir it up, and then pour in the beaten eggs.

Scramble until the eggs are set.

Divide evenly between two plates, top each serving with half the cilantro, and serve.

Feel free to add some chopped jalapenos or more green chilies to this, if you'd like it spicy.

Or you could use a pasilla or Anaheim chili in place of the green pepper.
