  • 4 (8-inch) flour tortillas
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 10 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
  • Sauce Rancheros
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • Diced avocado, sour cream, and chopped fresh cilantro, for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Brush tortillas on both sides with 2 tablespoons canola oil; lay on a baking sheet. Bake until crisp and brown around edges, 7 to 10 minutes.

  2. In bowl, beat eggs with salt and pepper. Heat remaining tablespoon oil in large skillet over medium-low heat. Cook eggs, stirring, until set but still moist, 6 to 8 minutes.

  3. Place tortillas on plates; top with eggs, sauce rancheros, and Monterey Jack. Garnish with avocado, sour cream, and cilantro.
