I love hot and spicy foods. I found as the years rolled by a person can build a tolerance for the hot stuff. I came from a family of meat,and potatoes. Married a man with a taste for the spicy...so I learned to like it. Now it is the wonderful flavor I'm looking for :)

  3. Break eggs into bubbling sauce. Cover and cook on med til eggs are done to your liking. Plate and sprinkle with cheese. Cook for 5 min for medium eggs.
