    Mexican scrambled eggs (or any fried mexican) are much tastier with corn oil instead of butter; we do not fry in butter. I once tried it and couldn't' figure out what was wrong with my eggs-- tasted funny, not as good-- it was the butter and also saffron oil (ugh on this one. CORN OIL!!

    Really enjoyed this dish, I substituted the jalapeños for green capsicum and added a sprinkle of chilli powder. Loved the colours!

    Can you not use olive oil

    These eggs are delicious! The pickled jalapeño gave them just a little heat and a really nice flavor (I don’t usually use pickled jalapeños). I served them with an avocado on the side, as suggested. It was a perfect combo. Kerrygold butter worked perfectly for sautéing the vegetables and cooking the eggs. No need to use any oil.

    Olive oil is not good to cook with.

    What is corn oil? Is it allowed on low carb?
  8. Cynthia
    Corn oil is not recommended. For more information, check out Dr. Eenfeldt’s article on vegetable oils (on diet doctor.com). Search for “Cooking with Vegetable Oils Releases Toxic Cancer-Causing Chemicals.”

    Ghee or grass fed butter is best

    Have made this now three times for my husband and he absolutely loves it! I use dripping (beef fat) and also a little bit of butter to cook all the things in. Oh and add a bit of ground cumin to it! Scrummy!!!
