I’ve been making these fluffy scrambled eggs often because I try to eat at least one small avocado per day for the health benefits and fiber. But I am also obsessed with anything enchilada, like my chicken enchiladas, enchilada soup, and enchilada sauce from scratch. If you have leftover enchilada sauce, you need to try this easy breakfast recipe! And for more scrambled egg ideas, try my Mushroom-Spinach Scrambled Eggs and High-Protein Scrambled Eggs with Cottage Cheese.

Enchilada Scrambled Eggs Ingredients

  • Eggs: You can make it with all egg whites or all eggs, but I often do a mix of both.
  • Adobo Seasoning: For flavor.
  • Enchilada Sauce: I think the homemade enchilada sauce makes the dish, but if you prefer to use canned, you can, but it just won’t taste as good.
  • Cheese: I love scrambled eggs with cheese, so I topped them with shredded cheddar.
  • Vegetables: Top the eggs with chopped scallions and sliced avocado.

How do you make scrambled eggs?

  • Beat the egg and egg whites with adobo seasoning.
  • Cook: Heat a small skillet over medium-high heat and spray it with oil. Once hot, add the eggs, reduce the heat to medium, and cook for a few minutes.
  • Top the eggs with enchilada sauce and cheese and cover the skillet. Cook on low until the cheese melts.
  • Serve: Remove the pan from the heat, and top the scramble with avocado and scallions.

Variations:

  • Sauce: I’m sure salsa verde would also be delicious on these eggs if you don’t have enchilada sauce.
  • Cheese: You can also use Monterey Jack or a dairy-free cheddar.
  • Herbs: Top the eggs with fresh cilantro.
  • More Servings: Double or triple the recipe to feed more people.
  • For added carbs, char a tortilla to make a breakfast taco.
  • Make It a Meal: If you enjoy eggs for lunch or dinner, I would serve this enchilada scramble with rice and beans on the side.

  2. What would be a good substitute for the adobo seasoning?

  3. Can I substitute tomato purée?
