How “authentic” this is, i couldn’t tell you but when i woke up this morning i knew i wanted something filling, spicy and full of flavour. Also calorie wise, it’s pretty low, i think i worked it out at around 380cals which when you are trying to watch what you are eating like i am is fantastic. It also keeps you really full so i often make this around 11am as a brunch dish and keeps me going all the way till dinner. In short, cheap, filling, healthy grub. What more could you possibly want?
Well apart from a room full of puppies or a bucket of cash.
You will need for two…
- Flour tortillas
- Tin of tomatos
- Red onion
- Half a red pepper
- Two cloves of garlic
- 2 eggs
- 25gs of grated cheese
- 1 tblsp tomato paste
- 1 tsp ground corriander
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- 1 tsp ground caynne pepper
- Drizzle of sour cream
- pinch of sugar
Fry your chopped onions on a low heat so soft and delicious, add your chopped pepper and garlic (i like to grate my garlic but you can chop or crush if preffered).
Once everything is a bit soft, add the paste and stir through, add your tinned toms, sugar and seasoning and let it cook down on a low heat.
Make two “wells” in the mixture and crack in your eggs, you will effectively be be poaching them but keep an eye on them. I found spreading the white around after a few minutes meant they cooked a bit quicker.
Warm up your tortilla and place flat on the plate, put the tomato on the middle and add a little sour cream (if you want it). next place your egg on top then top with a nice cheddar cheese or the nice spicy mexican stuff if you can get it.
