Add some fiesta flair to your brunch with Real Simple’s southwestern eggs. First, add salsa to your large nonstick skillet, covering and heating it until it’s warmed through. Add your eggs 1 at a time, cooking until they’ve reach their desired doneness. Make sure you don’t skimp on toppings when it comes to this dish; serve with avocado, sour cream, cilantro, and a side of tortilla chips. The recipe yields 4 servings. If you feel like going the extra mile, we recommend making Food Network’s homemade salsa to use in this recipe. Its fresh flavors will elevate your eggs to a whole new level!

  • ⅛ teaspoon black pepper

Directions: Pour the salsa into a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cover and heat until warmed through. One at a time, break the eggs into a small dish and slide gently into the salsa.
