Southwest Scramble

The past few weeks I've been having a lot of fun creating new recipes that not only fit in with the Weight Watchers Simply Filling Plan, but that are also satisfying and delicious.  Today's recipe definitely fits the bill!

When I was a kid, I hated eggs.  Now, as an adult that is trying to change her eating habits, eggs have really been a lifesaver at meal time.  I've discovered that for me, there's a huge difference between a plain scrambled eggs and scrambled eggs loaded with vegetables!  So much much food!

Southwest Scramble 


  • 1/2 tsp. Olive Oil 
  • 3 mini peppers, sliced into rings
  • 1/4 cup red onion, diced
  • 1/2 leftover sliced potato, cut into smaller pieces*
  • 1/4 c. black beans, rinsed & drained 
  • dash red pepper flakes 
  • black pepper, to taste
  • 2 eggs
  • 1-2 Tbs. fat free milk
  • 1 1/2 Tbs. fat free salsa (optional)
  • Heat 1/2 tsp. oil in a small pan.  
  • To the hot oil, add the peppers and onions.  
  • When vegetables are near tender, add the sliced potatoes.  Cook until vegetables are desired done-ness (I don't like my peppers/onions to be too mushy).  
  • Season with red pepper flakes and black pepper, then add the black beans.  
  • In a bowl, beat the eggs and mix in the milk.  
  • Pour over the vegetable mixture, cooking and stirring until eggs are cooked through.  
  • Transfer to plate, top with fat free salsa if desired.  
  • The leftover potatoes have been cooked in oil previously and I took that into consideration when entering this into the recipe builder on the WW website.  
  • Top with light or fat free cheese or sour cream if desired.  Be sure to calculate/add the points if you do.  
  • While this is a single serving, you could easily divide this into two portions.  Serve along side a salad or serve as a wrap on a Weight Watchers-friendly tortilla or flatbread.  Again, be sure to calculate/add additional points where necessary.  
WW notes: 
  • 9 PointsPlus value for this single serving meal if following the PointsPlus program. 
  • If following the Simply Filling Program, this single serving meal is prepared with power foods, plus a portion of the daily recommended healthy oils.  Making this meal ZERO PointsPlus value.  
  • If you've already reached your daily recommended healthy oils on the plan, then be sure to track one PointsPlus value.  
  • As always, be sure to run recipes through the recipe builder to verify points values.
