    We use to have breakfast at church two days a week and took turns cooking, this was a regular of mine. Serve with refried beans and garlic toast.

      I cut the recipe back to 2 eggs - no problem. Deluxe version of this recipe would be to serve it with some sour cream, avocado, cheese & Salsa - I controlled myself and just added some salsa. It would be delicious with refired beans Mmm Lovely Sunday brunch dish

      These eggs are great! I first heard about them some years ago, on a PBS show where this ancient woman was talking about her 'favorite Mexican breakfast', which was *this*. Like another reviewer, I also fried the tortillas crisp - that's how the ancient woman did it also. Served with sour cream and hot sauce.. Delicious!

      We had this as a quick and easy dinner. VERY YUMMY! I didn't have a green chili pepper so I used a red bell pepper instead. I also cooked the tortilla until some of it was golden brown and crunchy. Other than that I made it just as stated. We only had three servings, if we had done four they would have been too small. I will be making this recipe again and again. Thanks for sharing.
