Eggs are cooked on top of a fiery tomato and pepper sauce as it simmers slowly to completion. You can eat this for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner, and it’s always delicious!

Heat olive oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat.

Add onions and mushrooms.

Sprinkle with salt.

Cook and stir until mushrooms release all of their liquid and start to brown about 10 minutes.

Stir in bell peppers and jalapeno pepper.

Cook and stir until peppers begin to soften up about 5 minutes.

Season with cumin paprika turmeric black pepper and cayenne.

Stir and cook to “wake up” the flavors about 1 minute.

Pour in crushed tomatoes and water.

Adjust heat to medium and simmer uncovered until veggies are softened and sweet stirring occasionally 15 to 20 minutes.

Add more water if sauce becomes too thick.
