6 servings / 1 hour 5 min 

Prep 15 min / Cook 50 min

  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) canola oil
  • ¾ cup (175 mL) minced onion
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) chili powder
  • ½ tsp (2 mL) ground cumin
  • ½ tsp (2 mL) crushed red pepper flakes, (or to taste)

  • 1 (19 oz / 540 mL) can low sodium diced tomatoes
  • 6 eggs
  • ¼ cup (50 mL) grated cheddar cheese
  1. In large saucepan, heat canola oil over medium heat. Add onion and sauté for about 5 minutes. Add chili powder, cumin and red pepper flakes and stir for 2 minutes. If you like it extra spicy, add more red pepper flakes to taste.
