One morning, I was searching the kitchen for a way to jazz up scrambled eggs. When I couldn't find any bacon bits, I decided to try the leftover taco filling from the night before. I've been making it for my husband and me since.
This is an ideal dish for two, especially if you like spicy food. Plus, it's easy to make when you wake up sleepy—and the sauce is a real eye-opener!
