  • 1 tablespoon garlic-infused olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 4 corn tortillas, cut into strips (approximately ½-inch by 2-inch pieces)
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced thinly
  • ½ to 1 jalapeño pepper, minced (optional) – remove the seeds for less heat
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon low FODMAP taco seasoning
  • ½ cup cheddar cheese

Optional Garnishes: Sliced green onion tops (green parts only), fresh cilantro leaves


  1. Add olive oil and butter to a large skillet and heat over medium heat.
  2. Add tortilla strips and toast, stirring frequently, until crispy. Remove tortilla strips from pan.
  3. Reduce heat. To the now-empty skillet, add the bell pepper and jalapeño. Cook until tender.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together eggs and taco seasoning. Add seasoned eggs to peppers; pushing around gently with a spatula to scramble.
  5. Once eggs are almost fully cooked, stir in crispy tortilla strips and cheese. Cook until the cheese is melted.
  6. Serve warm topped with optional sliced green onion tops (green parts only) and cilantro leaves.
