  • Bring in the tomatoes for a tangy twist, cooking for an additional 2 minutes. Carefully add the eggs and let them mingle with the spicy mix as you sprinkle in the crushed red pepper flakes. Scramble the eggs with a wooden spoon for about 5 minutes, until they reach your desired level of scrumptiousness.
  • It’s garnish time! Top your Fiesta Fusion Shakshuka with a sprinkle of sliced green onions and a handful of chopped cilantro, adding a burst of color and freshness. Serve it with warm naan bread or toast, perfect for sopping up every last drop of this delectable dish.
