Mexican Baked Eggs for #FoodieExtravaganza


Foodie Extravaganza is where we celebrate obscure food holidays by cooking and baking together with the same ingredient or theme each month.

Posting day is always the first Wednesday of each month. If you are a blogger and would like to join our group and blog along with us, come join our Facebook page Foodie Extravaganza. We would love to have you! If you're a spectator looking for delicious tid-bits check out our Foodie Extravaganza Pinterest Board!

Cam from Culinary Adventures with Camilla said "June 3 is National Egg Day. Make a dish that prominently features eggs, e.g. quiches, deviled eggs, meringues, egg salad, scrambled eggs, omelets, etc. Be creative!"


This is a delicious way to start the day - or it makes a filling dinner too! Whatever time of day you decide to try this one, it is warm, cozy, and fairly light on the carbs so not too heavy either. Though you can fill tortillas with this mixture if desired and serve them like breakfast burritos. You can tweak the seasoning however you'd like - I kept mine on the mild side (because - spice wimp over here!) The tomato / onion / bean mixture melds together beautifully and makes a perfect bed for the tender, cheesy baked eggs.

Mexican Baked Eggs

Ingredients
1 TBS olive oil
1 small onion, finely diced
1/2 tsp salt, to taste
1/4 tsp black pepper, to taste
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, minced
1 14.5 oz. can Fire roasted diced tomatoes, undrained
1 15 oz. can black beans rinsed and drained well
1 4 oz. can diced green chiles
4 large eggs
2-3 ounces colby jack cheese (slices, or shredded)
To serve (optional): tortillas for serving, salsa, diced fresh tomatoes, sour cream or Greek yogurt, etc.

Directions
  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Heat a 12-inch oven proof skillet over medium to medium high heat with the olive oil in it. When hot, add the diced onion and sauté about 5 minutes until they begin to caramelize and get some color on them. Lightly season with salt and pepper while cooking.
  3. Add in the cumin and cayenne pepper, and sauté another minute then add in the minced chipotle pepper and stir well.
  4. Add in the diced tomatoes, black beans, and green chiles. Bring mixture to a simmer, and allow to simmer on low for 15 minutes or so, until mixture is thickened and most excess liquid has cooked off. Stir, and taste. Add in the salt and pepper (if you want it), and adjust seasonings to taste.
  5. Use the back of a spoon to make 4 indentations in the mixture and carefully crack 1 egg into each well. Season the eggs lightly with salt and pepper. 
  6. Bake in the preheated oven 7 minutes. Eggs should be mostly set. Sprinkle the cheese or arrange sliced cheese all around and return to the oven 2-3 minutes, until cheese has melted and eggs are cooked to your preferred done-ness. They are done even if they're still wiggly, they will continue cooking once you pull them out. If you want the yolks runny you may need to cook them less time at the beginning, depending on your oven. 
  7. Serve just as is, or top with your desired toppings. Serve with or without tortillas!

  9. As a prelaw adviser and consultant, I agree with so many of the points that Dr. Batchelor brings up in this excellent article. I especially agree with tip #1 about looking back over your entire life for stories and vignettes, and one his last tips that writing the personal statement for law school is a soul-searching endeavor and it can be hard and it can bring up tears. Writing an essay about yourself that reveals who you really are can give you an amazing amount of confidence, pride and self-knowledge. But often those wonderful feelings are mixed with remembering the challenges and difficulties you went through to become the person you are today.

    While I do agree with most of what Dr. Batchelor wrote, I respectfully disagree on points #3 and #4.

    Regarding point #3, unless the law school specifically asks for them to address "why law?" in the personal statement prompt, and the applicant has a really compelling reason for why law school is right for him or her, I do not recommend that they address why they want to enter the legal profession. The reason is because often the personal story that the applicant conveys in his or her personal statement does not lead naturally to why they want to study law.

    On point #4, I think it would be very hard to write about three episodes or stories from one's life in a 2-page personal statement (some schools accept a longer PS but most limit it to 2 pages). In most cases, I recommend writing about just one episode, event or occurence and how and why that one thing has shaped you into the person you are today. Again, the story may not scream out "this person must go to law school," but it will give the committee a very good idea of the applicant's values, interests, personality and point-of-view. It gives them that very personal view into the applicant and makes them think, "I want to meet this person. I want them to come to my school."

    If you can achieve that, you've done your job.
