More About This Recipe
Quick and with a delish kick, these eggs don't even dirty a pan!

There is a certain freedom that comes with going off to college. Getting to eat what you want when you want is one of those freedoms. But trust me, after eating at the dining hall every meal you will soon miss Mom’s cooking, and miss it fast.

But with little resources as a college student, how are you to cook? The microwave! Yes, really!

In no time you can whip up these Microwave Fiesta Eggs and have a delicious meal that can be made a million different ways. But I like them best with Old El Paso chilies in them to give them a little hint of heat.

Not in college? No problem. Microwave eggs are a quick and easy way to get a good dosage of protein to your morning routine without much clean up.

So whether you are a starving student or a busy mom on the go Microwave Fiesta Eggs are for you.

Here’s how
