Fajita Baked Eggs

Ingredients

  • 2 red or orange bell peppers, cored and sliced
  • 1 yellow onion, sliced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, cored and sliced
  • 2 tbsp fajita spice blend (below)
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 cup water
  • 4 eggs
  • 2-4 tortillas of your choice (flour or corn)
  • avocado, sliced
  • Cilantro
  • sour cream
  • olive oil

Spice Blend:

  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground pepper
  • 1 tsp salt

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375 F.

Toss the peppers and onions with a little olive oil and the spice blend. In an oven-safe skillet or sauce pan, sautee the peppers in a little more olive oil over medium heat, until peppers begin to soften. Add the tomato paste and water and combine well. Bring this mixture to a simmer for about 10 minutes. Crack the eggs on top and bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes, until the egg whites are cooked but the yolks are still runny. Or if you don’t like runny yolk, just cook it a few minutes longer.

Meanwhile, heat some tortillas in a non-stick pan and set aside. When the pepper mixture is removed from the oven, spoon each egg and the pepper mixture around and underneath it onto the tortillas. Garnish with cilantro, avocado slices and sour cream. Enjoy!
