  • 2 Medium Skillets


Stewed Peppers:

  • 1 teaspoon avocado oil
  • ½ onion peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 green or red bell pepper trimmed, deseeded, and sliced into strips
  • 1 red Fresno or jalapeño pepper trimmed and minced
  • 1 large, ripe tomato cored and roughly chopped
  • ¼ cup water if needed
  • ¼ teaspoon salt plus more to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • Black pepper to taste

Soft Scrambled Eggs

  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream optional
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

For Serving:

  • Flaky sea salt
  • Coarsely ground black pepper
  • Red pepper flakes


Prepare the Stewed Peppers:

  • Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the onion and pepper and cook, stirring often for 5 minutes until they begin to char slightly.
  • Add the minced jalapeño and the tomato and cook for 1-2 minutes more. Season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Add water, if needed and reduce heat and simmer for 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally. Taste and season again to your preferences.

Prepare the Soft Scrambled Eggs:

  • Combine the eggs, salt, and cream in a bowl. Whisk until smooth.
  • Melt the butter in a skillet over low heat. Once hot, pour in the eggs. Allow them to set up for 3-4 minutes before using a rubber spatula to gently pull the eggs toward the center, turning them into large curds. Continue doing this every 1-2 minutes until the eggs are mostly set up into large curds. Turn off the heat and allow the residual heat to set up any excess liquid in the pan.

To Serve:

  • Divide the stewed peppers between plates and spoon the soft scrambled eggs on top. Garnish with flaky sea salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes, if desired. Enjoy!
