  • Non stick skillet


  • 2 small potatoes or 1 large russet potato peeled (optional) and cubed
  • 1/4 cup avocado, vegetable or canola oil
  • 1/3 cup onions (yellow or white) chopped into small pieces
  • 1/4 cup Anaheim chile (or jalapeño, serrano, etc)
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • ground black pepper


Parboil method for cooking the potatoes

  • Place potatoes in a small saucepan. Add enough water just to cover the potatoes. Cook on medium high for about 5 minutes or until the potatoes soften up just a little bit.
  • Drain the potatoes and place them on paper towel to remove dry them up a little bit. If you skip this process the hot oil will splash all over you!

Frying pan method for cooking the potatoes

  • In a medium to large skillet, add about 1/4 cup (enough so that it spreads on the entire skillet). Stir them often so that they cook evenly.
  • Once they're ready, set them on a paper towel to drain the excess oil.

Cooking the eggs

  • In a skillet set to medium high heat, add the oil. Once the oil is hot add the potatoes and cook for about a minute. (This process is for when using the parboil method of cooking the potatoes)
  • When the potatoes are almost ready, add the onions and chiles and cook until the onions are translucent. Note: Remove excess oil prior to adding the eggs
  • Lower the heat to medium low. Add the eggs, and cook, stirring continuously, until they just begin to set. Continue cooking until thickened and no visible liquid egg remains, about 2-4 minutes.
  • Serve immediately, with salsa, hot sauce, toast, tortillas, as tacos, etc.
