Ingredients

  • 3 T. extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 corn tortillas
  • 4 large eggs
  • Chipotle powder, to taste
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • Optional (to serve):
  • 1 large avocado, sliced
  • ½ c. fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • 4 oz. Monterey-Jack cheese, shredded

Instructions

  1. To begin, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until it shimmers. Add the corn tortillas to the skillet one at a time and fry for 15-20 seconds on each side, or until the tortillas begin to crisp around the edges, depending on how thick they are. Put it on a platter and pat it down with paper towels to remove any excess oil. Repeat the process with the remaining tortillas and set them aside.
  2. Increase heat to medium-low and cook the eggs sunny-side up in remaining oil, just until the whites are set and the yolks are still runny, about 1 minute each side. Remove the pan from the heat and season with chipotle powder and sea salt, to taste
  3.  Place a sunny-side-up egg on top of each tortilla and serve immediately, with a side of diced avocado, fresh cilantro, shredded Monterey-Jack cheese, refried beans, and/or spicy salsa on the side for dipping purposes. Enjoy!
