1 TBSP canola oil
1/2 large yellow onion, diced
1 bell pepper, diced
3 medium garlic cloves, minced
1 14.5-ounce can petite diced tomatoes
1/2 cup water
1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
4 large eggs

1. Heat the oil over medium heat in a large non-stick skillet.

2. Add the onions, peppers, and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are softened, about 4 minutes.

4. Spread the tomato mixture evenly in the bottom of the pan and carefully crack an egg in each corner of the pan on top of the tomato mixture.

6. Serve and add a few dashes of hot sauce on top if you like.
