  • 4 corn tortillas
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon of chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon of cumin
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
  • Fresh cilantro, for garnish


  1. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until the onion is translucent, about 3 minutes.
  2. Add the diced tomatoes, chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper to the skillet and stir to combine. Let the sauce simmer for 5-7 minutes, or until it has thickened.
  3. Meanwhile, heat a separate skillet over medium heat. Place the tortillas in the skillet and cook for 1-2 minutes on each side, or until they are crispy and lightly browned.
  4. Crack the eggs into the sauce, making sure to spread them out evenly. Cover the skillet with a lid and let the eggs cook for 2-3 minutes, or until the whites are set and the yolks are still runny.
  5. To assemble, place a tortilla on each plate and top it with a generous scoop of the egg and sauce mixture. Sprinkle the shredded cheddar cheese on top and garnish with fresh cilantro. Serve hot.

Tips and Tricks:

  • If you prefer a spicier sauce, add more chili powder or diced jalapenos to taste.
  • For a vegetarian version, you can substitute the eggs with black beans or refried beans.
  • If you don’t have corn tortillas, you can use flour tortillas or crispy taco shells instead.
