  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1 large egg
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • 1 ounce freshly grated sharp white cheddar
  • 1 4-inch flour tortilla
  • for serving
  • sliced tomatoes
  • green onions
  • avocado
  • jalapeno peppers
  • fresh cilantro


  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the butter and once it melts, crack the egg over top. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook until the egg turns white and opaque. Gently flip the egg. Once flipped, top it with half of the grated cheddar. Place the tortilla on top. Cook for 1 minute.
  • Gently flip the egg over so the tortilla is now on the bottom of the pan. Top with the remaining cheese. Cover with a lid and cook for another minute. Slide the tortilla egg onto a plate and cover it with the tomatoes, onions, avocado, peppers and cilantro. Serve!
