Huevos Con Queso - Microwaved Eggs with Hot Peppers & Cheese

Microwaved Eggs with Hot Peppers & Cheese
The best dishes are created when one is ravenous. Lunch was late today because I had only myself to cater to. Earlier in the day, a Pinterest post caught my eye - 12 Ways to Cook Eggs in the Microwave. I've done that before with great success, so when my stomach began to growl, I raided the fridge and came up with this heartwarming and oh-so satisfying one-dish meal.

2 eggs
salt & pepper to taste
1 wheat tortilla
1 cup left-over chicken fajitas or taco meat (optional)
1 handful cilantro, minced
1 green onion, minced
1 green chili, minced
2 Tbsp. grated cheese

  1. Break eggs into a microwave-safe dish and beat well with salt & pepper.
  2. Tear tortilla into pieces and top with remaining ingredients, except cheese.
  3. Mix everything together and microwave on high for 2-1/2 minutes. 
  4. Sprinkle with cheese & microwave for another 30 seconds until eggs set.
Serve for lunch with fruit or salad for a hearty meal. Notice I didn't use any butter or oil so it's fat-free.
