Recipe Continues Below


  1. In 10-inch nonstick skillet, cook sausage over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until brown; drain. Transfer to medium bowl, and cover with foil to keep warm. Carefully wipe out skillet.
  2. Meanwhile, in medium bowl, beat eggs and salt with fork or whisk until well mixed. Return skillet to medium-high heat; heat butter just until it begins to sizzle and look hot. Add onion and chile; cook 1 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until softened. Pour egg mixture into skillet; reduce heat to medium. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until eggs are thickened throughout but still moist and creamy.
  3. Spoon 1/4 cup sausage into each shell. Divide egg mixture evenly, about 1/3 cup each, over filling, then top with cheese, avocado and cilantro. Serve with crema.
