Machacado con Huevo

The word machacado means crushed or shredded. Machacado con Huevo is a traditional northern Mexican dish of eggs and dried shredded beef. It is the ultimate comfort food and reminds me of Sunday mornings growing up. I’m convinced this dish is the reason my husband proposed.

6 eggs lightly beaten
1 cup machacado
1/2 yellow onion, diced
2 serrano peppers, diced
1 cup tomato, finely chopped
2 tablespoon avocado oil

flour tortillas for serving

Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions and saute until translucent. Add the machacado and saute until the beef begins to brown.

Add the sliced serrano peppers and tomatoes. Lower the heat and cook until the tomatoes release their juices, about 5 minutes.

Crack the eggs into a bowl. Add a pinch of salt and whisk. Add the eggs to the shredded beef mixture and stir until combined and cooked through. Serve immediately with warm flour tortillas.
