Huevos con Salsa Verde

Huevos con Salsa Verde

Some of my favorite flavors are those based in Latin dishes. These foods are typically packed with gobs of calories and fat. I enjoy deconstructing those traditional meals, and creating dishes that are much healthier yet still very tasty and satisfying.

One thing you have to try {if you haven’t already} is making homemade salsas. This is one of the easiest things to make, and salsas add so much flavor and punch to all sorts of dishes. I typically puree my salsas. Why? #1. My husband won’t eat onions, no matter how small they are diced, he will find them! #2. It’s so easy! Minimal chopping. Super fast. Quick clean up.

Today I made my first salsa verde. It was so fresh and tasty {although I completely forgot to add garlic!}. Just remember to always salt and pepper everything. At least, it will be well seasoned!

To make this breakfast. Cook 2 large eggs and top with salsa verde, light sour cream, 3 slices of avocado* and cilantro. That’s it! This would be really good wrapped in a small tortilla or even served with some fat-free or low-fat refried beans. Or black beans if you don’t care for refried beans.

*Avocado Tip: I always squeeze a bit of lemon juice on my avocado. Also, sprinkle a little salt and pepper. The lemon juice really brightens the flavor of the avocado. It will also help to keep it from browning once the air hits it.

Happy Weekend!
