Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Avocado — Choose ripe avocados that yield slightly to gentle pressure. To prevent browning, squeeze some lemon or lime juice over the sliced avocado.
  • Queso fresco — If queso fresco is not available, you can substitute it with crumbled feta cheese or cotija cheese for a similar flavor profile.

Tips & Tricks

  • For an extra kick of heat, add a few slices of pickled jalapenos on top of the salsas.
  • If you prefer your eggs cooked differently, adjust the cooking time accordingly. For fully cooked yolks, cook the eggs for an additional 1-2 minutes.
  • Customize the level of spiciness by adding more or less salsa verde and chipotle salsa according to your taste preferences.
  • Serve with a side of refried beans and Mexican rice for a complete and satisfying meal.
  • Experiment with different types of tortillas, such as corn or flour, to add variety to the dish.
