Southwest Scramble


Butter or oil

4 eggs 
1 can of Black beans
Chopped onions I buy chopped onions from the store-- saves me tears.

Put some oil in a fry pan and turn up the heat all the way.  Once the oil is smoking add chopped onions and stir until they are give a nice smell (about 30 seconds).  Turn down the heat to medium and stir in some black beans (I use canned for this). 

In a separate fry pan place it on the lowest heat possible. Put one teaspoon of butter in the pan and melt it.  Place the four eggs in the pan and gently fold them into one another- always stirring. Take the pan off the heat periodically and stir the eggs - do this until the eggs are set and steaming- then take the eggs off the pan entirely and fold in two teaspoons of butter.  The eggs will become like custard.  Once things are set add the beans and onions.   Always cook an eggs on the lowest heat possible. If it takes ten minutes- that is ok. If you cook it over a high heat the proteins from the egg will denature- become stiff and rubbery.

If you put this on a corn tortilla - then you have a taste of the Southwest.

You can add other things to this recipe-- make it your own.
