Scrambled eggs and guacamole

I loved this recipe at Iowa Girl Eats to make an easy, actually VERY easy, "mexican inspired" dish. I had to definitely and immediately include it in my mexican week meal plan.

The ingredients:
4 eggs, beaten
4 tablespoons ricotta/cottage cheese/requeijão
1/2 green bell pepper, chopped (or green onion)
2 teaspoons hot sauce
salt and pepper
1 1/2 tomatoes and 1-2 green bell pepper, chopped (for topping)
Fresh parsely or cilantro

1 ripe avocado
Juice from 1/2 lime or lemon
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1/4 onion, chopped
1/2 tomato, chopped

The recipe:
Mix eggs, cheese, 1/2 bell pepper, hot sauce, salt and pepper in a bowl. Pour into a hot, greased pan and prepare as scrambled eggs.

To make guacamole, mash one avocado with a fork and mix in remaining ingredients (lime, salt, garlic powder, 1/4 onion, 1/2 tomato).

Serve together and top with chopped tomatoes, bell pepper and parsely. You can put it all in a tortilla, eat it with chips or just as it is!
