Serves: 4


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1⁄2 green pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 can (14.5 oz.) diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 8 large eggs
  • Chopped cilantro, for garnish
  • 1⁄2 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1⁄2 jalapeño pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 4 6-inch corn or flour tortillas


  • Make salsa by softening onions, green peppers and jalapeño peppers in a medium saucepan on medium heat, for about 3-4 minutes. Add drained tomatoes, paprika, cumin, salt and pepper and allow to simmer uncovered for 5 minutes. Set aside.
  • Spray non-stick spray on both sides of a tortilla and place it on a medium skillet on medium-low heat. Cook the first side of the tortilla for about 3 minutes, flip, and carefully add two eggs on top of the tortilla. Place two heaping Tbsp. of salsa between the two eggs, cover the pan and bring heat to low. Allow eggs to cook between 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat and serve on a plate with chopped cilantro.
