Cooks Note: So, it doesn't happen very often, but this one is not one of my faves, and I hate to say that, because it wasn't bad, it just wasn't great. As I ate it I thought of several things I might do differently if I were to make this again. One being, I would not cook it as long as it calls for. I think 35-40 min dried the eggs out a little. Also, it could use some meat, sausage, bacon or even ham, I think it would add a little more depth to it. And lastly, the salsa was good on it, so why not incorporate that and add a can of Rotel? That is how I will make it next time. Try it and let me know what you think. Enjoy!
