how did I forget to rate this? I tried this recipe shortly after Riff posted it, and it is wonderful. We love it with a dollop of guacamole and salsa, and hot buttered tortillas. And the Fritos are a MUST.....don't try to use other's just not as good.

Yum! Yum! Yum! I was starving when I came home for lunch and decided that this was just the thing for me to whip up. I downsized the recipe for only 1 serving and used 2 eggs. I fried a corn tortilla in the butter until browned and crispy before adding the onions and other ingredients. I also omitted the steak and topped this with guacamole and Canned Basic Salsa. The fresh cilantro adds an earthiness and the crunch of the crushed Fritos is great. I can imagine this as a great breakfast after a night out. ;) Thanks for posting.
