- Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a medium-sized skillet on medium heat. Add the chopped tomatillos, onion, bell pepper, garlic, jalapeño pepper, and saute until onion is soft, about 5 minutes.
- Crack the eggs directly into the pan (no need to whisk first). Break up the yolks with a wooden stirring spoon or spatula. Stir gently and scrape the bottom of the pan while eggs cook.
- As eggs begin to set, sprinkle shredded cheese and pepper to taste. Remove from heat, sprinkle eggs with cilantro, and serve.
Scrambled eggs are a very versatile dish, and they taste delicious with all kinds of vegetables. If you have leftover vegetables from last night's dinner, consider using them in a variation on this omelet!
