Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 box (7 oz) Betty Crocker™ Southwest Style Queso Potato Scrambles Kit
  • 1/2 cup canned black beans, drained, rinsed
  • 1/2 cup cooked corn kernels, drained if necessary
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves

Steps

  • 1
    In 10-inch nonstick skillet, cook sausage over medium-high heat 7 to 9 minutes, stirring frequently, until cooked through. Drain sausage on paper towels, and set aside; carefully wipe out skillet.

    Increase heat to medium-high. Stir cooked sausage, beans and corn into potato mixture; cook uncovered 1 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until liquid is absorbed and mixture is heated through.

    Push potato mixture to one side of pan. Add beaten eggs to bare side of pan; cook 1 to 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, until firm. Gently stir eggs into potato mixture; remove from heat.
