I love scrambled eggs, they make such a quick, easy and nutritious meal. Using the Happy Egg Co free range eggs, I know that the birds are well looked after and are happy hens, which is very important to me as a consumer.
The happy Egg Co have challenged me to come up with a twist on ordinary scrambled eggs, using a vegetable, a herb or spice and a surprise ingredient. So I have come up with a scrambled eggs recipe with a Mexican flavour: Smoky Chipotle Srambled Egg using pinto beans as my surprise ingredient.
knob of butter
half a chopped onion
3 mushrooms chopped
1 heaped tablespoon sweetcorn
1 heaped tablespoon tinned Pinto beans
ground black pepper
1 teaspoon smoky paprika
1 teaspoon garlic granules
splash of smoky chipotle chilli sauce
Put a tablespoon of butter in a pan.
Fry the onions until softened, add the mushrooms and continue to cook for a further 3 minutes.
Add the beans, sweetcorn and seasoning.
Beat the eggs in a bowl.
Add to the pan and mix until cooked.
You can enjoy it as it is or for a heartier meal you can serve the Smoky Chipotle Scrambled Egg in a warm wrap with a blob of salsa and some grated cheese. It is delicious, hearty and nutritious!
