Preparation Time10 min
Cooking Time25 min
- 1 1/2 cup Pace® Picante Sauce
- 1 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
- 2 packages (3 ounces each) cream cheese, cut into cubes
- 4 slices Canadian bacon
- 2 English muffins, split and toasted

Heat the picante sauce and cumin in a 10-inch skillet over medium heat to a boil. Crack the eggs and add them to the skillet one at a time. Reduce the heat to low. Cook the eggs to desired doneness. Remove the eggs from the skillet with a slotted spoon and keep them warm.
Stir the cream cheese in the skillet. Cook and stir until the cream cheese is melted.
Cook the bacon in another 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat until it's lightly browned on both sides.
Top each muffin half with 1 slice of bacon and 1 egg. Spoon the picante sauce mixture over the eggs and sprinkle with the cilantro.
