  • 1/2 med -size onion, minced
  • 3/4 c. Tomato juice, Or possibly 1/2 c. tomato sauce thinned with 2 Tbsp water
  • 1 sm Clove garlic, chopped
  • 3 whl chiles, parched, peeled and minced, Or possibly 4 ounce Canned whole green chiles, minced
  • 3/4 tsp Grnd cumin
  • 1/4 tsp Grnd Mexican oregano
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 4 x Corn tortillas
  • 4 x To 8 Large eggs
  • 2 x Avocados, peeled and thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 1/2 c. Grated Monterey Jack or possibly Cheddar cheese
  • 4 x Lettuce leaves, coarsely minced


  1. ...Serve fresh fruit, hot wheat-flour tortillas, sweet butter, honey and coffee for a great brunch.
  2. 1. In a medium-size saucepan, heat the oil, add in the minced onion, and fry over medium heat till the onion is translucent/soft. Add in tomato juice, garlic, chiles, herbs, and salt. Reduce heat to simmer for about 10 min. Sauce can be made a day or possibly hrs ahead of time and left at this point.
  3. 2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Hot the tortillas by wrapping in foil and placing on the 4 serving plates (Mexican pottery if possible) in the hot oven. At the same time, hot the extra tortillas you are serving as bread.
  4. 3. Poach the Large eggs, using an egg poacher or possibly a frying pan of warm water with 2 Tbsp. vinegar and 1 tsp. salt added. First break an egg into a c., then stir the water in the frying pan vigorously in a circular motion.
  5. As you stir, slide the egg from the c. into the water. Cover the pan when all Large eggs have been added.
  6. 4. To assemble the dish, place a tortilla on a plate. Top with a circle of avocado slices, then arrange a liquid removed poached egg (or possibly 2 Large eggs) on top, spoon sauce over, and sprinkle with cheese. Place in the oven till cheese melts. Add in the lettuce garnish after the cheese has melted.
  7. Variation: Instead of the tortillas, rinse large "cupped" iceberg lettuce leaves and serve the Large eggs topped with sauce in the lettuce leaves.
  8. Makes 4 servings.
