Preparation : 5 min Cooking : 5 min
490 calories/serving


aluminum foil
2 corn tortillas 90 g
1 tbsp olive oil 15 mL
4 eggs size large
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]
2 servings Mexican Rice and Beans
30 mL Fresh Tomatillo Salsa 2 tbsp

Before you start

Keep the serving plates warm on the stove while you're preparing the dish.


  1. Preheat the oven to 205ºC/400ºF.  
  3. Wrap tortillas in foil, then heat 5 min in the oven. Wrap tortillas in clean kitchen towel to keep them warm. Alternatively, heat tortillas over medium heat in a dry hot pan until warmed and lightly toasted.
  5. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Crack the eggs into the skillet, taking care to keep the yolks intact. Cook them sunny-side up or over easy until the whites are firm but the yolks are still runny, about 4 min. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Place one tortilla on each warmed plate. Carefully slide two eggs on top of each tortilla. Add the Mexican Rice and Beans and the Fresh Tomatillo Salsa then serve.

The prep and cooking times are misleading since the recipe includes Mexican rice and beans which add another half-hour to the total.
