Did you guys know that today is National Egg Day? While there seems to be a national day for just about everything lately, eggs are really something to be celebrated if you ask me. Eggs are so verasatile, full of protein, and affordable. We go through a dozen eggs every couple of days. We boil them and have hard boiled eggs as a snack, fry them and serve with rice and beans (a big favorite at home) or you can make a frittata in a ton of ways, like the ham and jalapeno chips tortilla we made below. I found this recipe in a old cookbook a few years back and what instantly caught my attention was the jalapeño chips. You guys know that we’re HUGE fans of making just about any dish we can spicy, so when I saw our very favorite jalapeño chips mixed in to this tortilla I jumped at the chance to make it!
When I tell you a recipe is easy to make, believe me, because we’re not one that likes to stand in the kitchen for hours cooking. Well, actually, Franklyn does love cooking, and that’s why you often see the recipes he makes here (click here to see his chilaquiles another fave of mine). But this ham and jalapeno chips tortilla takes less than 15 minutes to make and is perfect for breakfast, brunch and even dinner! Seriously, give it a try, and thank me later!

3 large scallions
In a bowl, add eggs and slightly crumbled chips and mix.
In a frying pan, add oil and fry the ham and scallions for about two minutes.
Add eggs and let it cook until sides and bottom have set.
Place in oven and broil for 2-3 minutes or until top is brown and eggs have set.
To give your ham and jalapeño chips tortilla more of a kick, drizzle with hot sauce. Serve with a dollop of sour cream, garlic toast or on top of some sweet potato toast (slice and place in toaster). What’s your favorite egg recipe?
