by Mama Maggie's Kitchen


·2 tablespoons olive oil
·2 nopales, diced
·¼ onion diced
·1 jalapeño finely diced
·2 tomatillos, diced
·6 eggs
·1 teaspoon salt
·1/4 teaspoon black pepper
·Cilantro, finely chopped, for garnish


Heat olive oil in a large skillet, then add diced nopales. Cook for 3 minutes, or until it has turned a dark olive green color. Add the onion, jalapeno, and tomatillos. Cook for 1-2 minutes. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs, then add them to the skillet along with a sprinkle of salt. Stir and cook eggs for 3-5 minutes. Garnish with cilantro. Serve with salsa, sliced avocado, and tortillas, if desired. Enjoy!

It's fun and challenging to cook with what's available and the produce is so much fresher than anywhere else. Our family loves Ooooby!
