Huevos a la Mexicana

I have mentioned before how much I love eating beans & eggs during pregnancy. My body just craves the extra protein & carbs. For me, it really just helps to fuel my body and helps me have  a more productive day.

I used to be one of those people who could skip breakfast, but not anymore! Maybe it's because I follow the IIFYM diet, or maybe it's because someone told me it boosts your metabolism to eat in the morning, either way, this is a great meal to have. One fairly popular variation is called Huevos a la Mexicana.

Basically, it's just Mexican style eggs. It uses onions, green (jalapeño) peppers, and tomatoes because those three colors make up the colors of the Mexican flag, thus it's name. Super simple, super delicious especially if you serve it alongside some pinto beans & a couple corn tortillas!
