I don't even know what to call this dish. It's currently my favorite breakfast option: two eggs on a crunchy corn tortilla topped with fresh pico de gallo and a little cotija cheese.
And it turns out it's much, much better.
Here's what you need:
-One flat, crispy corn tortilla (you can buy them ready made or make your own by baking soft corn tortillas in the oven)
-Fresh pico de gallo salsa
-Salt and Pepper (to taste)
-Cotija cheese (Feta or another salty, crumbly cheese would work fine)
Put the flat, crispy tortilla on your plate. Cook the two eggs over easy (or over medium or hard, whatever you prefer). I cook mine in a small non-stick frying pan with a little butter. That way the eggs never stick to the pan (they slide around easily) and I can flip them by picking up the pan and gently tossing them instead of using a spatula. I do it over the sink in case I miss...
After the eggs are cooked, slide them from the pan onto the tortilla. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Add some pico and cotija cheese.
Now you're done making one serving. Do it all again if you're cooking for more than just yourself!
I'm sure someone, somewhere has made something like this before. If anyone knows of an official name that already exists for this dish, let me know. It's delicious. I've been serving it with a little yogurt and fruit on the side and it's seriously the best breakfast ever.
Tomorrow I might add some avocado and make it that much better!
