Mexican Eggs Recipe

Mexican Eggs Recipe


6 eggs
4 slices bacon, diced
1 (28 ounce) can stewed plum tomatoes, broken up (drained)
1 1/2 cups Monterey Jack cheese, cubed
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, minced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh green chilies
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt

On the side
flour tortillas (warm)


In a 10-inch frying pan, cook the bacon until crisp. Remove from the pan using a slotted spoon and drain well. Add the garlic and onion to the bacon drippings in the pan; cook until the onion is soft. Stir in the chilies, tomatoes, oregano and salt. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Continue boiling for about 15 minutes (until the sauce thickens). Reduce the heat to low.

Crack the eggs and slowly slip into the sauce, one at a time. Sprinkle the bacon and cheese over the top. Cover and simmer for about 5-6 minutes (until the eggs are set). Sprinkle with the cilantro. Serve with warmed flour tortillas and guacamole on the side of the plate, if desired.

    sounds delishh but plenty of work.. I might attempt that with my helpful dandy crock pot. I noticed you have a lot of the Asian country recipes but nothing through the Phillippines. Did you have got any Filipino food just before? Just wondering…you might just like some. Have a very good one! Gilda Lybarger
