Easy fried egg tortilla is made in one pan by frying one side of a tortilla, flipping it, adding cheese and an egg, and then cooking until the egg sets. It is the perfect quick meal any time of the day.
Avocados can go out of season or sometimes randomly be rotten before your very eyes.
They are a fickle fruit… plant.
There are also days of the week when I am running late and do not have time to pop some eggs in the Instant Pot.
That is why I always have a back up egg dish in the works.
Lately, that back up dish has been an easy fried egg tortilla.
It is what it says it it people.
A tortilla fried on one side in some avocado or grape seed oil over a medium heat.
You can skip the EVOO here because it will smoke up and your tortilla will burn.
Flip the tortilla to fry on the second side.
I like to add a little shredded cheese or crumbled queso fresco, but it is totally optional.
Crack an egg on it.
Yes. Crack that egg right on the cheese and tortilla.
It will cook, don’t fear.
Cover with a lid and wait about 7 minutes.
Top with hot sauce and whatever other toppings you have on hand.
I am particular to pickled red onions and hot sauce.
You can choose whatever type, corn or flour, for this recipe.
I am very, very, like only buy these tortillas now, particular and fond of Caramelo tortillas.
That is what I always use.
I said it at the start of the post. An easy fried egg tortilla in not only good for breakfast.
This would make a super quick lunch.
You could also cook up some black beans or refried beans and serve them on the side with lots of pico de gallo as dinner.
Let’s normalize fried eggs at every meal, eh?
Try to avoid extra-virgin olive oil in this recipe because it doesn't have a high smoke point and will burn off before the egg is cooked all the way through and result in a way too crispy/burnt tortilla.
