"Agreed. The torn corn tortilla added is not a good idea. Pretty basic recipe."

"I omitted sustituted the egg whites and added 2 whole eggs. Tossed in some leftover peppers and onions. I wasn't thrilled with the cut up corn tortillas, not sure if I'll make this again."

"Excellent! I made this for a friend visiting from England. I added just 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin seed and just a few small diced red and yellow pepper. So easy and quick."
