Ingredients

  • 3 T Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 4 Corn Tortillas
  • 4 Eggs
  • Chipotle Powder to taste
  • Sea Salt to Taste

Optional to Serve:

  • 1 large Avocado
  • 1/2 C Fresh Cilantro, Finely Chopped
  • 4 oz Montery-Jack Cheese, Shredded

Instructions

  • (Optional Step) Heat olive oil in a large skillet over
    medium-high heat. Add corn tortillas, one at a time, to the skillet and fry for
    15-20 seconds on each side, just until the tortillas begin to crisp around the
    edges. Transfer to a plate and blot off excess oil with paper towels. Repeat
    with remaining tortillas and set aside.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low and fry the eggs sunny-side
    up in the leftover oil, just until the whites are set and the yolks are still
    runny. Season with chipotle powder and sea salt, to taste, and remove from
    heat.
  • Top each tortilla with a sunny-side-up egg and serve immediately with choice of diced avocado, fresh cilantro, shredded Monterey-Jack cheese, refried beans, and/or spicy salsa on the side.
