A Southwestern Scramble is a scrambled eggs recipe with many spicy ingredients, such as 
onions and chilis. For a complete breakfast, serve with sliced, fried wiejska (Polish 
sausage), toast, and orange juice.


    * 8 eggs
    * 2 tablespoons (30 mL) milk
    * 1 medium red onion, chopped
    * 1 medium green chili pepper, such as jalapeño, seeded and chopped
    * 1 green bell pepper, seeded and sliced
    * salt and black pepper, to taste
    * Serve with hot sauce, such as Tabasco sauce
    * butter, margarine, or cooking spray, for frying pan


   1. Chop the onion and chili, and slice the bell pepper. Crack the eggs into a large 
mixing bowl, add the milk, and beat until well combined.
   2. Place a large frying pan over medium heat, add the butter, margarine, or cooking 
spray, and allow to melt. Add the onions, chili, and bell pepper, and sauté for 2-4 
   3. Add the eggs to the pan, and allow to cook for 30 seconds to 1 minute, until they 
just begin to set. Turn the heat up to high, and begin scrambling the eggs by scraping 
the bottom of the pan with a spatula and folding the cooked egg into the egg mixture.
   4. When the eggs are still moist, but mostly cooked, remove from the fire and plate.
   5. Serve while still hot.

Tips and tricks

    * To adjust the spicyness, use more or fewer chili peppers, or use types varying 
levels of heat.
    * The chilis are seeded because of the intense heat in the seeds, where the 
majority of the capsaicin is. The seeds can be left in, but the scramble will be much 
    * Be sure to scrape the entire bottom of the pan, as well as the sides. Otherwise, 
those areas where the egg is not scraped will burn.
    * Carryover heat will continue to cook the eggs, so they should be removed from the 
fire while still slightly underdone, otherwise they will be over cooked.
