Keto Mexican Scrambled Eggs

Keto Mexican Scrambled Eggs

In the “stormy weather” keto diet motivation post, I mentioned eating some delicious keto Mexican scrambled eggs! In my opinion, those keto Mexican scrambled eggs turned out really well! However, this is not an exact replica of the recipe, but it is definitely a noteworthy flavorful combo.

After inhaling the first bite of what I am calling keto Mexican scrambled eggs, I had to make sure I knew what ingredients had been used. I confirmed that she used red bell pepper, green bell pepper, jalapeno pepper, yellow onions, garlic, cilantro, salt and black pepper. You can just imagine how good this smelled as it was being prepared with bacon in the oven – wow!

All the peppers were finely chopped along with the onion. However, the fresh garlic seemed to be minced, not chopped. After sauteing the chopped peppers, onions, and garlic she added the egg mixture along with the cilantro. So, I made my own unique version of keto Mexican scrambled eggs this morning to share with you.
