    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!
