½ cup chopped onion

1 large red potato (¾ lb.), halved and sliced 1⁄8-inch thick

Ingredient Line: 
½ jalapeño chile, thinly sliced
Ingredient Line: 
1 cup torn Swiss chard leaves

1. Set oven rack in top third of oven; preheat oven to 400°F.

2. Whisk eggs with 1 Tbs. half-and-half or milk, and season with salt,
if desired. Set aside. 

3. Heat 1 Tbs. oil in large ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add onion, and sauté 1 minute. Increase heat to medium-high, add potato, and season with salt, if desired. Cook 5 minutes, or until browned in some places and al dente, stirring occasionally. 

4. Meanwhile, pulse 1 cup corn kernels and 1 tsp. jalapeño slices with remaining ¼ cup half-and-half or milk in food processor until chunky.
