My grandmother showed me how to make this with fresh tortillas that she would make everyday for us. I love this dish as a main dish or snack! It’s feel good food.

I love making mexican food, and I often have leftover tortillas in my fridge. I usually just saute some veggies and scramble some eggs and put it IN a tortilla for a breakfast burrito, but this was a nice change! It reminded me of a Mexican version of matzah brei, or fried matzah. I used 2 eggs and one flour tortilla, because the tortillas were pretty big. Super easy and good. Thanks!
