Typically enjoyed with hot chocolate and arepa, I usually just serve it with some avocado on the side. This also happens to be a keto, whole30 and gluten-free friendly recipe.

I’ve been to Colombia many times, and always loved this simple egg dish. I shared this on my Instagram stories a few weeks ago and everyone asked for the recipe. Since I make this so often, I am surprised I don’t already have it posted here. It’s really simple to make and comes together fast. The combination of scallions and tomatoes are what make this so good, which is also the base for so many dishes in Colombia.

  1. What a perfect summer morning breakfast. I did have to add in some banana pepper from the garden and YUM. And then I had some arugula…I just can’t leave things alone. Tomorrow, I will add a little fresh basil.

  2. We used only 4 eggs for 2 of us -extra large. It was so filling especially when topped with Mexican cheese! Plates were clean! 

  3. Didn’t have abodo seasoning, but decided to add a small amount of canned chipotle chiles in abodo sauce. Amazing!

    I’ve made this probably 10x this month! One of my new favorite breakfasts. Thank you Gina! 

  4. In Texas, we add a diced Serrano chili, a few corn chip at the end and top with cheese. 

  5. Mmmm reminds me of childhood trips to Colombia. Yay!!!! Thank you!

  6. A simple and tasty twist to a family regular. I am just starting to use Adobo , and did not add enough of that , but I am working on it!

  7. Simple yet delicious!

  8. Just like my mom makes! So delicious!!

  9. I have made something similar to this and I agree it is my favorite way to have eggs as well. My only issue with this recipe is that you put only 2 mins prep time. Who can rinse and slice scallions,  seed and dice a tomato, and crack and scramble eggs in 2 minutes? I always feel like I am so slow in the kitchen because I cannot prepare food in the amount of time the recipes state.
