Scrambled Tortilla Eggs

These are no ordinary scrambled eggs...they get a burst of bold flavor from picante sauce, crunch from tortilla chips and some creaminess from cheese and avocado. Give them a try...they're ready in a snap and they're really good.

    large avocado, peeled, pitted and sliced

Directions
1.
Stir the eggs and 2 tablespoons picante sauce in a medium bowl.
2.
Heat the butter in a 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Add the egg mixture and cook until the eggs are set but still moist. Stir in the cheese and tortilla chips.
3.
Heat the remaining picante sauce in a 1-quart saucepan over medium heat until it's hot and bubbling. Spoon the picante sauce over the eggs. Top with the avocado. Serve immediately.
Tip:

1.
The contrast in temperature between the hot eggs and the cool avocado makes this dish spectacular. If you like, you can slice the avocado, squeeze a bit of lemon juice over it to keep it from turning brown, and chill until the eggs are ready.
