Chile on eggs?

But doesn't anyone eat salsa or chile on eggs? Standard fare for us
Southwesterners. Actually, in New Mexico, the question is "red or green?"
with your eggs, meaning red chile made from ground red chile pods, or green
made from chopped green chiles. And red chile does not have beans or
tomatoes or meat in it (that's for Texans). When home, I can't resist huevos
rancheros at breakfast, but since I'm an outlander now in the Midwest, I
usually have to settle for a rather bland salsa with my eggs.

My husband (Brooklyn-reared) and his entire family eat ketchup on
hamburgers, while my entire Midwestern family eats mustard on them. I'm
"wierd" when we're visiting his family, and vice versa.
