Old corn tortillas = awesome breakfast

An episode of one of Nigella Lawson's tv shows had a recipe for a fry-up that used soft corn tortillas, peppers and eggs. I had one of those "why-didn't-I-think-of-that?!" moments and haven been making a version of this recipe at least once a week ever since.

The basic idea is to pan fry some soft tortillas (stale ones work really well) in some oil, cook till crispy, add in cooked veggies, or other left overs till they are warmed through, then add eggs and eat.

Tortillas crisping in oil over medium-high heat:

Since I used a cast iron skillet, I shut off the heat, then added the eggs:

Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper, or hot sauce and you have breakfast.

  1. The cookbook I brought over last night has a bunch of recipes for chilaquiles... not that it's the kind of dish that requires a recipe.

    Maybe I will have breakfast for dinner tonight.
