Prep time 5mins
Cook time 15mins
Serves or Makes: 4


For the Salsa:

  • 1/ 2 cup chopped yellow onions
  • 1 medium serrano pepper, chopped, can sub a jalapeño
  • 1/ 2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/ 4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, optional
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can Muir Glen Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes with Garlic
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

For Assembly:

  • 1/ 4 cup olive oil, plus more as needed
  • 4 corn tortillas
  • 1 cup refried beans, canned or homemade
  • 4 large eggs
  • Cilantro leaves, for garnish, optional
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges, optional


  • Step 1

    Place the chopped onions, serrano pepper, oregano, cayenne pepper and salt in a blender or food processor. Add the canned tomatoes and blend until smooth.

  • Step 2

    Heat the olive oil in a medium sauce pan until it starts to shimmer, then add the garlic. Cook for 10 to 15 seconds until it starts to smell fragrant. Don’t let it brown. Add the tomato puree and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, and let cook for 5 to 10 minutes, until salsa has darkened a bit and thickened.

  • Step 3

    While the salsa is reducing, place the olive oil in a medium skillet. Heat until it starts to shimmer, then place 1 tortilla in the oil. Cook until the edges start to brown and harden a bit, flipping the tortilla to make sure both sides are fried. You don’t want to fry the tortilla completely hard, just crisp it up slightly. Remove from oil and place on a plate with a paper towel to drain it a bit. Repeat with the remaining tortillas, stacking the tortillas on top of each other with a paper towel in between.

  • Step 4

    Once the tortillas are fried, plate them. Heat the refried beans in a microwave safe bowl or on the stovetop in a small pan. Smear about 1/4 cup of refried beans on each tortilla.

  • Step 5

    Cook the eggs by reheating the remaining oil in the same pan you fried the tortillas in. Crack an egg into the pan, making sure there is enough hot oil to fry the egg white crispy. Fry to your desired doneness (I prefer over easy). Remove egg and place on the refried beans. Repeat with the remaining eggs, adding more oil if necessary.

  • Step 6

    Top the fried eggs with the warm salsa. Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste, then garnish with cilantro leaves and serve with lime wedges.
