Eggs with Fried Tortillas & Tomatillo Salsa

This was absolutely amazing. The tomatillo salsa was fantastic. We ate the leftovers with chips the next day. Yum.Eggs with Fried Tortillas and Tomatillo Salsa

From: Eat Make Read

2 Tbs. vegetable oil
1 clove garlic, minced
2 flour tortillas
4 eggs
1/4 cup tomatillo salsa

For Tomatillo Salsa:
1 1/2 lbs. tomatillos
1/2 cup white onion, choppe3d
1/2 cup cilantro leaves
1 Tbs. lime juice
1/4 tsp. sugar
2 jalapenos, stemmed, seeded and chopped
salt to taste

Heat oil in a frying pan. Roll tortillas like cigars and cut into thin slices, about 1/4" thick. Toss in the frying pan and let them get crispy, about 5 minutes. Toss garlic in the pan after the tortillas have been cooking for a few minutes.

In a small bowl, scramble the eggs. Pour over the tortillas and garlic. Add salsa over the eggs. Cook egg mixture for a few minutes and take if off of the heat while the eggs are still shiny. They will continue to cook in the pan, but will retain their moisture. Garnish with cilantro and additional tomatillo salsa.

To make Tomatillo Salsa:

Rinse tomatillos. Cut the tomatillos in 1/2 and place cut side down on a foil lined cookie sheet. Place under the broiler for about 5-7 minutes to lightly blacken the skin.

Place tomatillos, lime juice, onions, cilantro, jalapenos and sugar in a food processor or blender and pulse until all of the ingredients are finely chopped and mixed. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cool in refrigerator.
