This Fried Egg Tortilla dish is a flavorful and easy-to-prepare breakfast or brunch recipe. It combines the richness of a fried egg with the fresh, zesty flavors of salsa, jalapeño peppers, cilantro, and green onions, all served on a warm tortilla.


  • 4 small corn or flour tortillas
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup salsa (homemade or store-bought)
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: shredded cheese, such as cheddar or Monterey Jack


  1. Heat a small amount of vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat. Fry the tortillas one at a time until they are lightly crispy, about 30 seconds per side. Drain on paper towels and set aside.
  2. In the same skillet, add a bit more oil if necessary and heat over medium heat. Crack the eggs into the skillet and fry to your preference (either sunny-side up or over-easy).
  3. While the eggs are cooking, warm the salsa in a separate pan or in the microwave.
  4. Place each fried egg on a tortilla.
  5. Spoon a generous amount of warm salsa over each egg.
  6. Sprinkle the thinly sliced jalapeño peppers, chopped cilantro, and sliced green onions over the top. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  7. If desired, sprinkle shredded cheese over each tortilla. The heat from the egg and salsa will help melt the cheese.
  8. Serve immediately while everything is still warm.
