½a small white onionabout little more than ¼ cup, chopped
2large cloves of garlicroughly chopped
roughly chopped serrano pepperto taste
1.5Tablespoonsolive oilor vegetable oil
4medium to large eggsor as desired
In a large pan heat the oil then add the onion and saute until softened. Next, add the serrano and saute for 3 minutes while stirring constantly. Next, add the nopales and garlic and the salt (I used about ½ a teaspoon), and mix until well combined. Saute until the nopales have softened and released all of their viscous liquid, continue to cook until that liquid cooks off. Then add the tomatoes and cook for about 5 minutes. Stir to prevent burning. Then add the eggs and cook until the eggs are cooked to your desired texture.
Serve with warm tortillas on the side and if desired some refried beans, your favorite salsa, and avocado slices. You could also use it as a stuffing for gorditas or to make breakfast burritos. Enjoy!
