Out of Helen's kitchen - Eggs

Eggs are one of the few foods considered to be a complete protein, because they contain all 9 essential amino acids.  Amino acids are considered the “building blocks for the body”. I like them for their reasonable price, and the expedient way they bring a meal together.

Mexican scrambled eggs

5 large eggs
2 Tbsp. milk
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. Mrs. Dash
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 cup diced green onions
1/4 cup diced peppers
1/2 cup shredded
Mexicana cheese
4- 8 inch tortillas

In a bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, salt, pepper and Mrs. Dash. Stir in onions, peppers and cheese. Wrap the tortillas in foil and place in preheated oven for several minutes. Meanwhile in a lightly greased preheated frying pan pour in the egg mixture. Stir gently with a spatula occasionally until all the egg is set. Spoon eggs into the center of the warm tortillas. Serve with salsa.

Spinach egg casserole

1 cup raw rice
1 pkg. frozen chopped spinach

Cook rice as directed on package. Defrost spinach and drain excess water. Mix with the rice. Combine the eggs, salt, pepper and Mrs. Dash. Add to the rice/spinach mixture. Place in a lightly greased casserole dish and bake at 350° for 30-40 minutes or until set in the middle.
