Cooking Egg with Tomatoes and Tortillas

Cooking anything with egg always reminds me of the three women with the most impact in my life: my mom, my grandma, and my mother-in-law who were experts with egg recipes. My mom and granny loved this. Every time we went out to breakfast at a Mexican restaurant, they always asked for Egg-based foods. This also reminds me of my mother-in-law because it was the first breakfast she made the first time she visited us in the United States. I still remember the smell of tomatoes and chilies roasting on the griddle for the sauce. Delicious! This recipe is how my mother-in-law prepared it on that visit.

Ingredients:

  • one lb tomatoes
  • two chilli
  • 1/2 medium onion
  • one garlic clove
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • 6 Corn tortillas
  • 6 eggs

Instructions:

1. Roast the tomatoes, chilies, onion, and garlic on a griddle over medium heat, until they start to singe. Remove from heat and transfer to a blender glass. With great care, blend the roasted tomatoes, chilies, onion, and garlic until well ground. Pour the sauce into a small saucepan and season with salt to taste.

2. In a nonstick skillet heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil over medium heat. One by one, brown the tortillas in the hot oil for about 30 seconds on both sides, adding more oil when needed.

3. In the same pan, cook one or two eggs to taste (steamed or scrambled) in a drizzle of vegetable oil; season with salt and ground black pepper.

4. To serve, put one of the golden tortillas on a plate. Place one of the eggs on top of the omelet and bathe in the sauce.

How to Make Baked Chicken Step by Step

Making baked chicken at home is so easy and it comes out so rich that there is no point in buying it done. You just have to follow some very simple steps, starting with buying a good chicken, preferably organic, to ensure the best flavor. I like to put it in brine, which is a combination of well-seasoned water so that the meat is imbued with all those flavors. This step can be skipped if you are short on time, but I assure you that it makes a difference in the final quality of the chicken. Having a baked chicken at home gives you the option to use leftovers in a number of creative and easy ways, making it super convenient and a great way to vary the menu for the week. You can use the shredded meat to make a chicken salad combined with lettuce and other vegetables. Or with chopped apples, grapes, pecans, and raisins, for sweeter, Christmassy flavors. If there are flour tortillas in the refrigerator, they should be used to make quesadillas with cheese and chicken. Add a little chopped chili, a few sprigs of cooked and chopped broccoli, and you will have another super easy dish. As you can see, baked chicken is not only delicious but also super practical and versatile.

Ingredients:

  • one whole chicken
  • 1/2 cup of salt
  • one teaspoon of pepper
  • 1/2 Sugar cup
  • one lemon
  • two tablespoons of honey
  • one tablespoon mustard
  • two tablespoons soy sauce
  • one tablespoon olive oil
  • one fresh thyme sprig
  • 4 garlic cloves, whole

Instructions:

1. Wash the chicken and dry it very well. Remove the interiors.

2. In a large container, dissolve 1/2 cup of salt, 1 teaspoon of pepper, and 1/2 cup of sugar in 2 or 3 liters of water. Dip the chicken in this liquid, cover it, and refrigerate two hours.

3. Drain the liquid and dry the chicken. Place it in a baking dish or container lined with aluminum foil, so that it is easy to clean afterward.

4. Preheat oven to 375ºF.

5. Using a kitchen wire, tie the chicken legs so that they do not lose shape.

6. Spread all the skin of the chicken with a mixture of lemon juice, honey, mustard, soy sauce, and olive oil. In the abdominal cavity of the chicken, you can put the squeezed lemon and a few sprigs of thyme, oregano, or any other fresh herb you have. Spread the whole garlic around the chicken.

7. When the oven is hot, put the chicken inside and bake for 1 hour, spraying every 15 minutes with the cooking juice.

8. Remove it from the oven and make a cut in the thigh part to see if the liquid that comes out is transparent. If so, the chicken is ready, otherwise continue baking for an additional 20 minutes.

9. When you take it out of the oven you have to let it rest for about 15 minutes so that the meat remains juicy.

10. And now yes, cut it and serve it with the cooking juice.

11. As a garnish, you can serve a salad of lettuce and radishes. Also roast cauliflower 20 minutes in the oven, with garlic and olive oil.
