  • Nonstick skillet


Optional Toppings

  • queso fresco
  • avocado


Frying the tortilla

  • Brush each side of the tortillas with some oil (about 1 tablespoon). You can use your fingers or a brush. This helps to keep the amount of oil you use very low.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of oil over medium heat and briefly fry the tortillas one by one. Place on a plate with paper towels to absorb any excess oil.
  • Set aside on the serving plate.

Cooking the eggs

  • Heat nonstick skillet over medium heat (note #1: You may add a little more oil or butter if you think your eggs may stick).
  • Carefully break eggs into the skillet, and cook until the whites are just set on top and the yolks are still runny, about 3 minutes. (note #2: You can cook the eggs one at the time, or cook them together and separate in the middle with the spatula before serving)
  • Place each egg on top of each tortillas and season with salt & pepper. Separate the eggs with refried beans in the middle. Pour some Tomatillo Salsa on one egg, and the Red Salsa on the other egg.
  • Top with queso fresco and avocado on the side. (note #3: You can eat them like tacos or simply slice the eggs and tortilla with a knife as you eat. Choice is yours!)


Fry the tortilla in small amount of oil until they're crispy but still bendable. Or if you would like to eat it as a tostada then go ahead! Make the tortilla as crispy as you would like.
