Once the tomatoes were prepped, we added 1 tbs of oil to our frying pan.

Then we added onion. We suggest adding onion first because they’ll need a little more time to soften up. We bought ours pre-diced.

Next mix in your tomatoes.

In a separate pan coat with a little oil and add the corn tortillas one at a time, flipping until each side is crispy.

At this point you can place your tortillas on serving plates, and spread the vegetable mixture on each tortilla.¬† We chose to put the vegetable mixture on a little later to preserve the crispness of the tortilla. It’s up to your personal preference.
Now let’s prepare the eggs.

Cook eggs over easy or sunny side up, however you prefer,

and place an egg atop each tortilla.
