OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

½ cup salsa ranchera or salsa verde colida

2 tablespoons peanut or safflower oil

2 small tortillas

2 eggs

grated Monterrey jack or Cheddar cheese

coriander, minced, for garnish


1. Heat the oil in a small frying pan and fry the tortillas lightly on both sides – they must not become crisp. Drain them on paper towels and place them in a warmed individual serving dish, such as a small cazuela.

2. In the same oil, fry the eggs, then place them on the tortillas. Cover the eggs with the warmed sauce and sprinkle with the cheese. Run briefly under the broiler to melt the cheese, sprinkle with coriander and serve immediately.
