A delicious Mexican breakfast that’s hearty enough for dinner.




Preheat the oven to 450ºF. You’ll need two flat or rimmed baking sheets

  1. 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 to a baking sheet. Repeat with the other 3 tortillas, placing 2 tortillas on each baking sheet. 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 and spread the beans evenly over the salsa.
  2. 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. Sprinkle the grated cheese evenly over each tortilla.
  3. Put the pans in the oven and bake for 4-5 minutes, until the cheese melts and everything is heated through.
  4. Serve with a selection of garnishes.
