  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Heat up a 9-inch cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add beef, onion, and bell peppers. Use a wooden spatula to quickly break the beef into small pieces. Stir and cook until the beef is no longer pink, about 5 minutes.
  3. Pour Simply Organic Red Enchilada Simmer Sauce into the beef mixture, followed by diced tomatoes. Stir and mix well.
  4. Make a “well” using your spatula, crack an egg into the “well.” Repeat this step with the rest of the eggs. Turn heat down to medium. Let it cook for about 2 minutes.
  5. Transfer the shakshuka to oven and bake for 7 minutes, or until the egg white is set.
  6. Garnish with fresh cilantro. Serve with avocados. Enjoy!
