Ingredients & Cooking

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound Ground Beef (93% lean or leaner)
  • 2 medium jalapeño peppers, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 2 cans (15 ounces each) no-salt added or regular tomato sauce
  • 6 large eggs
  • 6 slices Rustic-style bread, toasted
  • Fresh cilantro leaves

Cooking:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Heat large ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add Ground Beef, jalapeño peppers, garlic, paprika and cumin; cook 8 to 10 minutes, breaking beef into small crumbles and stirring occasionally. Stir in tomato sauce; continue to cook 3 to 5 minutes or until sauce is slightly reduced, stirring frequently.
  2. Cook's Tip: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed Ground Beef. Ground beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F. Color is not a reliable indicator of ground beef doneness.
  3. With back of spoon, make six indentations into sauce. Break one egg into each indentation. Place pan in oven and bake, uncovered, 16 to 17 minutes or until egg whites are completely set and yolks begin to thicken but are not hard.
  4. Spoon beef mixture and eggs evenly over bread slices. Garnish with cilantro, as desired.
