I’ve always been told breakfast is the most important meal of the day and wanted something new. To change things up I decided to add into the scramble the second spiciest pepper in the world, the Trinidad Scorpion. This meal is easy to make and is sure to jump-start your day!
How Hot are Trinidad Scorpion Peppers?
Just to compare the Jalapeno that ranks an average of 2,500 and 8,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU). Trinidad Scorpion has an average of 1,200,000 SHU, the second hottest pepper in the world. A pinch of Trinidad Scorpion is really going to kick up your meal. Spicy food can increase your metabolism, and boost your endorphins.
Health Benefits of this Scramble
Eggs are generally paired with breakfast, as a side dish, or the main course. Packed with protein and vitamins, eggs, can also lower your cholesterol. I wanted to give this main dish a lot of flavors, and pack it with veggies.
To balance the heat of the Trinidad Scorpion I’ve added sweet bell peppers. If the meal gets too spicy you can add some sour cream on the side. As the second spiciest pepper in the world, it’s important to know some tips on how to reduce pepper burn.
