  • 3

    whole Corn Tortillas

  • 2

    Tablespoons Butter

  • 1

    whole Egg

  • Salt And Pepper, to taste

  • Salsa

  • Sour Cream

  • Pico De Gallo (optional)

  • Avocado Slices (optional)


Stack the three tortillas on top of one another and use a circular cutter to cut a circle out of the middle. Save center circles for another use (nachos or mini tacos, anyone?) Heat a griddle or skillet over medium heat and melt half the butter. Place the tortillas, still stacked, on the skillet so that the tortilla on the bottom soaks up some of the butter. Put a little butter in the center hole, then carefully crack in the egg. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and let it cook for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Move the tortilla/egg away from the cooking area for a second, then melt on the rest of the butter. Carefully flip the tortilla/egg to the other side so that the tortilla on that side will soak up some of the butter. Continue cooking until egg is at the doneness you like; a little softness is good! Serve with salsa, sour cream, and other fixins.
