Smoky corn tortillas (these count as a whole grain!) combine with fried eggs and tangy fresh salsa for a satisfying breakfast with just the right balance of fibre, protein, and, oh yeah, loads of flavour.


Cooking spray

2 spray(s)

Corn tortilla

2 medium


2 large

Table salt

1 pinch(es)

Pico de gallo

½ cup(s)


1 tbsp(s), fresh, leaves, for garnish (optional)


  1. Set a gas burner on the stovetop to medium-low, or heat a dry skillet on medium- high. Toast the tortillas directly over the burner or in the pan until lightly charred, turning often. Arrange the tortillas on a plate.
  2. Coat a medium nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat on medium-low. Add the eggs and season with the salt. Cook until the whites are set and the yolks are cooked to desired doneness, 3 to 5 minutes. (Do not remove the pan from heat.) Top each tortilla with 1 egg.
  3. Add the pico de gallo to the same skillet and cook just until warmed, about 1 minute. Spoon the pico de gallo over the eggs. Garnish with the cilantro (if using).
