Ready In:




  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Cook the onions, garlic, jalapeños, cumin, oregano, sugar and some salt until tender, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the tomatoes and simmer until the mixture thickens, about 10 minutes.
  • Char the tortillas slightly over the flame of a gas burner or in a dry skillet, if using an electric stove top.
  • Layer some tomato sauce mixture in the bottom of a medium casserole dish then top with a few tortillas (3-4) and 1/3 of the cheese.
  • Repeat this ending with cheese on top.
  • Take the remaining tortilla, roughly chop it up and scatter over the cheese.
  • Bake until browned and the sauce is bubbling around the edges.
  • Heat about 1/4-inch of vegetable oil in a medium skillet over medium-low heat.
  • Fry 4 eggs in the oil, spooning the oil over the tops of the eggs to cook them without flipping.
  • Cut the casserole into 4-6 servings and top each one with a fried egg and a little salt.

    What an easy and fast way to make enchiladas. The sauce was very good. The fried egg on top (which is what we call 'dirty' LOL) was special. Dirty Enchiladas.....but it was so good. Definately a keeper. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

    Fantastic! The sauce was great, and I was really impressed with how well the flavors from the enchiladas matched with the egg! Thanks for sharing.

    This dish was terrific! The sauce is delicious - I'll be using it for other Mexican dishes that I make - and the fried egg on top was a perfect addition to an already tasty casserole. I used a method I found in Nimz's recipe #193851 to cook the eggs without flipping. We had this for dinner with a fruit salad and just loved it - thanks for sharing an easy recipe that I will make often!

    This was great, my meat-loving DH would have prefered meat inside but I enjoyed this! I did do some amount adjustments to suit out tastes and also added in cayenne pepper, this makes a great brunch or light dinner, thanks for sharing!...Kitten
