Tex-Mex Shakshuka

I’ve never been a huge fan of traditional shakshuka, but found a way to make it delicious. Instead of the regular tomato sauce, I use a can of Ro-Tel.



  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 can ro-tel


  1. Heat 1 can of Ro-Tel in small-medium skillet
  2. make 4 small indentions in the tomato, and add one egg to each
  3. reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until eggs are poached to desired doneness.
  4. Season with pepper, za’atar, cumin, cayenne, etc.
  5. Sprinkle with olive oil before serving.
  6. Serve with tortillas (corn or flour), tortilla chips, or pita, with a side of Israeli salad and guacamole, sour cream, and schug/Cholula


  1. for extra tomato flavour, mix in 1-2 TB of tomato paste
  2. For extra spice, add a chopped jalapeno
  3. For more crunch and extra flavour, saute a chopped onion, garlic, and bell pepper in a bit of olive oil before adding the Ro-Tel. This morning I used the leftover vegetables from last night’s fajitas and it was fantastic
