Quick Egg Dish

Updated on September 21, 2012

Quick and Easy Mexican Dish

This dish can be made at any time of day. We usually have this for a quick dinner or a lunch at our house. This is a very inexpensive meal, the total cost to feed four people is about $7.00 and it is very satisfying.

You will need the following items:

6-8 Flour or Corn Tortillas cut into 6 to 8 triangle shaped pieces.

1/2 cup of vegetable oil.

6 large or extra large eggs beaten.

1/2 cup of milk

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1 14 oz. can of re-fried beans

1 tablespoon of Adobo (garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, and turmeric). Goya makes the best Adobo, no MSG!!

12 oz water

1 tablespoon hot sauce.

1/4 cup of fresh or dried onions.

Heat half cup of vegetable oil in a large frying pan on medium heat. Once oil is hot, you can test oil temperature by putting a single piece of tortilla in the oil. If it bubbles around the tortilla it is hot enough. Place a single layer of tortilla pieces in the pan and fry on each side for 20 seconds, 30-40 if you like crispy slightly darker chips. Remove and place on a paper towel covered dish and set aside, cover with a towel to keep them warm.

Next combine eggs, milk, and hot sauce and mix until the liquid is completely yellow. Pour off oil from frying pan you used to fry tortillas, making sure to wipe outside of pan to prevent a fire. Pour in the eggs and fry until desired stiffness.

Scrape eggs from pan if there are any stuck to the pan, and add a bit of oil to pan.

--If you are using dried onions pour the half cup of water in pan, add Adobo, and dried onions. Wait for water to bubble on the outer edges, and then add the re-fried beans.

-- If using fresh onion, put oil in pan and saute the onions for a minute, then add the water and re-fried beans.

Stir in the re-fried beans and keep stirring until they are soft and a bit runny. They should be a bit runny, not a thick paste.

Place the tortillas on a plate, add the eggs on top of the tortillas. Pour or spoon re-fried beans over the eggs, and top with the shredded cheddar cheese. Enjoy!

Serves 4.
