Serves: 2
  • 5-6 corn tortillas
  • 5-6 pasture-raised eggs
  • ½ onion, chopped
  • ½ bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 bunch cilantro, finely chopped
  • ⅓ cup fresh feta cheese
  • 1 ripe avocado, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon lard or vegetable oil
  • sea salt, to taste
  • ½ serrano pepper or 1 jalapeno, chopped (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon cheese like Monterrey jack (optional)
  1. In a cutting board, stack the tortillas so they are on top of each other. Slice lengthwise to form long strips and then sideways to form little half inch squares (or smaller).
  2. In a non-stick pan, melt lard over medium heat. Add tortillas, onion, bell pepper and jalapeno or serrano (if using). Fry over medium-low heat for 10-15 minutes, until tortillas are mostly crisp, stirring occasionally.
  3. In a medium bowl, beat eggs until frothy. You can add a splash of milk or melting cheese like Monterrey Jack to make them creamier. Salt to taste keeping in mind that the feta cheese garnish will be salty as well.
  4. Once tortillas are ready, add cilantro and mix for just a minute or less. Add beaten eggs and spread over pan. Don't scramble. Let them sit for a bit until the bottom is set then fold with a spatula a couple of times until it's cooked through. You want them a bit moist not dried up!
  5. Serve with half an avocado sliced and garnish with feta! You can add salsa if you like too.
