- 1 small yellow onion, diced
- 3 tablespoons canola oil
- 1-2 jalapeños, diced
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- 1 can diced tomatoes, 28 ounces
- 1 can (4 ounces) diced green chiles
- ½ lime
- 8 corn tortillas, lightly fried
- 8 large eggs
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 8 ounces cheddar jack blend cheese
- 1 avocado, sliced, for garnish
- Cilantro, for garnish
In a sauté pan, sauté onions in canola oil with a pinch of salt for about 3 minutes. Add jalapeños and garlic, then sauté for another 3 minutes. Add tomatoes and green chiles and simmer for 10 minutes. Add a squeeze of lime, taste sauce and adjust seasonings as desired.
Preheat oven to 400°F. For individual servings, press one lightly fried tortilla into each ramekin, then ladle in ¼ cup of sauce. Crack one egg in the center, season with salt and pepper and sprinkle with 1 ounce of cheese. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until egg is set but yolk is still runny.
For family service, line a large baking dish with lightly fried corn tortillas. Cover with tomato sauce, then use the back of a spoon or ladle to make small wells in the sauce. Crack eggs into wells, then season with salt and pepper and sprinkle with cheese.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, until eggs are set but yolks are still runny. Serve with avocado slices and a sprinkle of cilantro.
