I love finding fun ways to eat eggs for every meal, and a hearty skillet meal is my go-to. —Erin (Naturally Ella)

What You'll Need
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 1 1/2 cups diced or stewed tomatoes with juices
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3/4 cup cooked brown rice
  • 1 tablespoon minced cilantro
  • 2 eggs
  1. In an 8-inch skillet, heat olive oil over medium-low heat. Add minced onion and cook until soft and fragrant, 6 to 7 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, chipotle powder, and salt, then cook until warm, 1 to 2 minutes.
  2. Next, add brown rice and cilantro, cooking for an additional 2 minutes. Create a well in the center of the mixture and crack in both eggs. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and let cook until the egg whites are set and the yolk is at desired consistency, roughly 6 to 7 minutes for over-easy and 10 to 11 for over-hard. Serve with a sprinkle of cilantro.

Delicious! I used the last of my roasted tomatoes in this recipe and it tasted so good! As for chipotle powder, I think Penzey's is the best. With the two eggs, this breakfast lasted me well past lunch.

I made this again with last night's leftover tomato sauce from Food 52's Braised Chicken Thighs with Tomato and Garlic and Deb Perelman's Farro with Tomatoes. Seasoned with Penzey's chipotle powder, this was so fast, easy and delicious, inspired by leftovers.

Great recipe! Thank you so much Erin for sharing this. I thought there is nothing I can eat for breakfast but it turned out I had quite a fest :)

Made this for lunch! I didn't have any chipotle powder I used Mexican chile powder instead! Added a sprinkle of fresh Parmesan and it was yummy!
