Tortilla Hash
Author: Anita
Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 10 mins
Total time: 20 mins
  • 1 or 2 corn tortillas, torn into pieces
  • ½ tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp chopped bell pepper
  • 2 tbsp diced onion
  • 1 tbsp hot diced green chiles
  • 2 tbsp diced tomato
  • 2 eggs, beaten and lightly salted
  • shredded Monterey Jack or Cheddar cheese
  1. Saute the bell pepper, onion, and tortillas in the butter. The tortillas will first soften and then firm up.
  2. As the tortillas firm up and just start to brown, stir in the tomato and green chiles. Add the egg mixture and stir until the eggs are set.
  3. Top with cheese and lightly stir in so it just starts to melt.
  4. Serve with warmed salsa.
This is an easy way to fix up a special breakfast for one. It’s essentially a scrambled egg dish with chiles, onions, peppers, and tomatoes … but the addition of corn tortillas makes it particularly interesting. Sort of like breakfast enchiladas in a scrambled egg form. Not your typical scrambled eggs at all. You can use as much or as little corn tortillas as you wish. I only used one 6-inch tortilla – trying to keep the carbs down, you know. I thought it was very good and satisfying. You might prefer it with two tortillas. This would be especially good with avocado or guacamole as garnish.

Try it – I hope you enjoy it!
