In a pot add green beans and water; boil until the green beans are fully cooked. You will noticed that they change colour and some open to release the seeds. Drain water and reserve. Pro tip: for a better flavour avoid blanching or cooking green beans al dente.

In a skillet fry the onion with the olive oil (margarine or butter) for a few minutes until the onion is caramelized; add beans and fry for 5 more minutes.

In a small bowl whisk the eggs with the milk, salt and pepper. Add the eggs mixture to the beans and onions; cook for 5 to 8 minutes or until the eggs are cook through. Pro tip: covering with a lid ensure fluffily eggs.

Serve with a side of delicious warm green chilaquiles. Top with a green hot salsa.

You can also serve as a side dish, try them with roast beef!

Buen provecho!
