Description

Poached eggs in a flavourful sauce served over toast, but tortillas or rice can also be used.

Instructions

Heat oil in a large skillet. Add onion; sauté until softened, about 5 or 6 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, chili powder, oregano, salt and pepper. Simmer for 10 to 12 minutes to blend flavours, stirring occasionally.

One at a time, break eggs into a small bowl and then into the sauce. Cover skillet and cook over medium heat until eggs are done as desired, about 6 minutes.

Serve over rice, tortillas or toast. Garnish with cilantro if desired.

Tips

  • If the sauce thickens too much while simmering, add a little water to thin slightly
  • Four to five medium fresh tomatoes can be substituted for canned tomatoes. If using fresh tomatoes the sauce may need to be simmered a few minutes longer to blend flavours.
