Description

These eggs are my go-to dish on mornings when the hunger hits me hard around 9 am—when I’ve been up since five and haven’t eaten. When a doughnut or a Ding Dong just won’t cut it. And the best thing is, they take about five minutes to whip up.

Ingredients

  • 3 whole Eggs
  • 3 slices Cheese (provolone, Swiss, Cheddar, Jack, Etc.)
  • 1 cup Picante Sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • Salt To Taste
  • 2 whole Flour Tortillas
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Cilantro (optional)

Preparation

Butter the griddle (or a skillet) and crack open the eggs on to it, with a sprinkling of salt. Turn heat to low. Cook the first side until it’s just firm enough to flip over to the other side. Once flipped, throw on some cheese and salsa/picante sauce.

Let the egg sit and cook slowly until the cheese melts – this should take 3 to 4 minutes. If you are using a skillet, you can cover at this point, which will speed up the melting a little bit.

In the meantime, heat up some flour tortillas, roll ‘em up, and put them on the side of each plate.

When the cheese is totally melted, throw two or three eggs on each plate.

Toss on some cilantro, if you so choose.

This is a quick, simple and delicious breakfast for those mornings when you think, “Eggs? AGAIN?!?” The flavor of the runny egg yolk combined with the tangy picante sauce and creamy cheese is just divine. We had planned to serve these with some seasoned black beans in addition to the tortillas, but were so hungry that we forgot to make them. Oops! Next time, I suppose…

I never thought I’d like Mexican-ish food for breakfast, but these really hit the spot. Yum!

Love, love, love these. These are by far Hubby’s favorite Tasty Kitchen recipe. I think he could eat them every day!

These are excellent for breakfast or dinner. I love to have breakfast FOR dinner, but my husband is not a fan…unless I make this! He loves it, and since I make the Restaurant Style Salsa nearly weekly, we almost always use it, and have the eggs and cheese on hand, so it’s one of those things we always have the ingredients to whip up, and makes eveyone happy. Plus clean up is a breeze! Hooray for Huevos Ree-Os!

My new favorite way to eat eggs. It’s become a new go-to dish for me, although I substitute corn tortillas for flour tortillas because I’m weird like that. This is also one of my favorite recipes on TK so far too. Quick and delicious!
