Ma. Cristina's Tortilla Eggs

READY IN: 8mins
Recipe by Notherjack

This recipe was handed down from my late mother-in-law and it is a simple yet delicious quick breakfast. My son loves them. Any salsa will work, store bought or homemade, you choose the heat, I prefer the chunky kind. I've also added ham or sausage with the salsa for good results.

This is a nice easy and tasty breakfast but I just love the taste of salsa and eggs together. I also added some shredded monterey jack cheese and let it melt just a bit.


  1. Tear the tortilla into bite sized pieces.
  2. In a hot dry skillet, fry the tortilla pieces until they just start to brown.
  3. While they are cooking, beat the eggs with a little water.
  4. Lower the heat to Med and stir in the salsa.
  5. Cook for 2 or 3 minutes.
  6. Add the eggs and salt to taste.
  7. Continue cooking and stirring until the eggs are just set.
  8. The eggs will continue cooking after you take them off the heat.
  9. MMMmmm.
