Taco-Style Scrambled Eggs with Guacamole and Corn Chips

December 4, 2010

Author Notes: I grew up in California where tacos, salsa, beans and rice were rooted into my asian blood. Buenos Aires doesn't have great Mexican food, though with lots of avocados, and my leftover crunchy-bits of corn chips, inspired this into a healthy satisfying breakfast. FrancesRenHuang
