This is really a breakfast treat. I make the eggs in separate small skillets. If you have only onesmall skillet,

you may want to make both eggs in a large skillet so they can cook at the sametime and the first egg doesn’t get cold while you are cooking the second one.

As for the cheese,I like to use 1- or 2-percent-fat jalapeño Jack cheese but you can use American cheese

or plainJack cheese just as well or eliminate the cheese completely, if you prefer.


1 - Heat the tortillas in a 350°F oven for 5 minutes.

2 - While the tortillas are heating, in each of 2 small nonstick skillets melt 1 teaspoon of but-ter over medium-high heat. To each skillet add 1 whole egg with the yolk unbroken and 1 eggwhite. Season with salt and pepper. Cook about 1 to 2 minutes or to desired doneness. (If youprefer eggs “over,” turn them before topping with cheese. Place a slice of cheese over each eggportion.

3 - Remove the tortillas from the oven and place one on each plate. Top each with one of thefried eggs, then put 2 tablespoons of salsa on each portion.
