Number of Servings: 4


    4 TB chopped green pepper
    2 TB chopped onion
    4 corn tortillas
    4 fresh large eggs
    1/2 cup salsa (any kind you like)
    2 TB green chiles (optional)


STEP ONE: Sautee green pepper and onion in a pan with spray oil till softened and onions caramelize.

STEP TWO: In the same pan (add a bit more spray), toast each tortilla about 1 min. per side. Spray the pan between each tortilla. Do this over med-high heat. If pan starts smoking, raise pan off heat for a few seconds, then lower back to burner when it stops.

STEP THREE: Poach the eggs (my way) - spray a nonstick fry pan lightly, then add about 1/2 inch water on the bottom of pan. The spray keeps the eggs from sticking. Heat water to boiling (this will happen very quickly) over high heat. When water boils, crack eggs and slowly slide into the water by putting the egg near the water and gently letting it slide into the water. Do this so you can fit all four eggs in the same pan. When you have all four eggs in, LOWER HEAT to simmer, and let cook for a few seconds, till the whites begin to become opaque. Take a spatula and gently loosen each egg from the bottom of the pan, then cover with a lid and simmer for about 4-5 minutes, or till cooked to desired doneness.

STEP THREE: Assemble!! Layer: Tortilla, Egg, sauteed onion and pepper, salsa, and then green chiles (if you desire them). Eat while still warm!

You can add sour cream and cheese, but it will drastically change the fat/calorie content...though it is quite a bit more delicious, if I do say so myself.
