An easy, fun, vegetarian Mexican-style meal: Flour tortillas heaped with salsa, refried beans, eggs and cheese.




  1. Preheat the oven to 450ºF. Set 2 baking sheets or jellyroll pans near the stove top.
  2. Heat 1 teaspoon of oil in a large non-stick skillet. Using tongs, slide a tortilla around in the hot oil and let it brown for about 45 seconds per side. Transfer the tortilla to a jellyroll pan. Repeat the process with the other 3 tortillas, placing 2 tortillas on each pan. Put a heaping tablespoon of salsa on each tortilla and spread it around with the back of the spoon. Put 1/4 of the refried beans in the center of each tortilla Use a butter knife to spread the beans around evenly over the salsa. Set tortillas aside while you fry the eggs.
  3. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil over medium heat in a large non-stick skillet until hot but not smoking. Crack 4 eggs into the skillet, spacing them carefully so they don’t overlap. Cook the eggs for a couple of minutes until just a little less done than you like them, as they will cook a bit more in the oven. Using a spatula, carefully slide two eggs onto each tortilla. Repeat the process with the remaining 4 eggs. Sprinke the grated cheese evenly over each tortilla.
  4. Put the pans in the oven and bake for 4-5 minutes, until the cheese melts and everything is heated through. Remove trays from the oven. Put one tortilla on each of 4 plates. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with chopped scallions. Serve with Salsa, sour cream and any other fun garnishes. Enjoy!
