- 1/2 cup salsa, room temperature
- 1 cup grated Monterey Jack cheese, room temperature

- Cover eggs with warm but not scalding water. Let sit 5 minutes or until room temperature.
- Beat eggs with salt. Set aside.
- Combine chiles, salsa, cilantro, and cheese. Set aside.
- Heat a large nonstick over medium high heat. Quickly swirl with butter and add eggs. Cook until egg is set and well browned on side facing pan.
