Scrambled eggs are good, tomatoes and onions are good, why not put them together?

This is the Venezuelan version of scrambled eggs and it's called "Huevos Pericos" we use to have these for breakfast with "arepa" (they are like mexican "gorditas") and cheese.  They are also good with toast or crackers.

When you finally eradicate the liquid from your eggs it's time to eat.

This amount is fine for 2 or 3 people depending on how much you want to eat.
