I must say that these were absolutely delicious and so easy. Essentially it is a fried egg on a tortilla with some cheese and I have no problem with that. I was making only one at a time as my roommate but they looked so good that we couldn't wait until there was one for each of us and each took a fork and shared. We stayed in the kitchen standing up, cooking and eating until we were so full of huevos we fell down. Almost.
I found the recipe here on Smitten Kitchen.
4 6 inch corn tortillas
2 oz shredded cheddar or pepperjack cheese
salt and pepper
1. Heat up a smidgen of oil in a skillet on medium heat. Throw in the tortilla and heat it up until it is slightly browned. Flip so the other side gets some browning action and then top with about half an ounce of shredded cheese.
2. When the cheese is slightly melted, crack an egg on top of the cheese and tortilla. Sprinkle some salt and pepper on top of the egg and then allow it to cook like this until the white is partially set-- the edges and part of the egg on the tortilla.
3. Now the tricky part, flip the tortilla over and allow the egg to cook for another few minutes. Flip the egg and tortilla onto a plate, top with some delicious salsa and perhaps some hot sauce and devour before you even have time to sit down.
* this for me was 1 jalapeno seeded and diced, two or three diced roma tomatoes, a handful of finely chopped cilantro, about a teaspoon of lime juice and salt and pepper.
