Mexican Breakfast Recipe 
Better than an Omelet!

Here is a Mexican breakfast recipe that is inspired by my dad, Alphonso. He loves to cook and seems to always be in the kitchen whipping up something. This Mexican egg and tortilla recipe iseasy and quick to prepare.

We have a family joke about the mess he makes in the kitchen but not one of us complains too much because dear old dad always manages to whip up something delicious.

So I asked my dad if he had any good Mexican breakfast recipes and he said "Of course!"

Now you must keep in mind that dad cooks with a pinch of this and a handful of that. My job was to decipher all of his instructions and make a recipe you can duplicate.

So I took his instructions and tried his recipe. And you know what? I've got another tasty one for you to try! It sort of reminds me of an omelet with the addition of cheese. The chiles and tortillas really give it some nice flavor.

I'm going to call this one Alphonso's Mexican Breakfast Recipe -- Mexican Eggs and Tortillas.


  • 4 corn tortillas
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 green onions, minced
  • 3/4 to 1 cup vegetable or olive oil
  • 1/4 cup diced Chile Ortega
  • 1/2 avocado, cut into small chunks
  • 1 small tomato, cut into small chunks
  • 1 cup cheese, shredded, cheddar, Monterey jack, or any other you like


Heat the canola oil in a frying pan over medium high heat. Slice the tortillas into strips (1/2 inch by 2 inches) and place in the hot oil to fry. Cook the tortillas until they become crispy and slightly browned.

Drain the oil from the pan. Mix the eggs with a whisk and pour into the frying pan on top of the tortillas. Add the rest of the ingredients by sprinkling them over the eggs.

Cook over medium heat, turning the eggs until they are cooked through.

Serve with salsa and some delicious Mexican hot chocolate and enjoy! This Mexican breakfast recipe will serve 2 to 3 people.

Made your apple pie recipe yesterday. Absolutely the best!! And no gap! Your spice mixture was just right.

I have the apple/corer/peeler and it made perfect slices in no time. Thank you so much for your wonderful step by step instructions and for the video. Much appreciated. Lucky me! :)

Hi! I just wanted to say that your tortilla recipe/video is pretty much the greatest thing ever! I'm a college student, so it's a really great/cheap thing to make. They're especially good with butter, honey, and brown sugar.

I just have to make sure my family doesn't find out I stopped using the family tortilla recipe! Ha! Thanks again!

I just have to write to you and admit something! I'm preparing your spanish rice recipe at the moment AND....I want to thank you!

I had actually given up on making Spanish rice! No one, or no recipe, until YOURS, ever said to actually BROWN the rice so much.! I think thats the taste difference!

Thank YOU so much.  I followed your recipe exactly,..and it is absolutely wonderful!

Just to let you know that I found your website and love it. We have very limited Mexican produce in Australia and I am enjoying making your recipes.

I have made your enchilada sauce a few times now.  We all love it and have managed to find pinto beans at our central markets. Good Job. Well done.

Rockin' Robin, you truly rock! I live in china right now, far, far away from my beloved Mexican food. Finding ingredients is hard enough, learning how to make everything from scratch no longer is with your recipes.

Though I've only tried your tortilla recipe, I will certainly be coming back to your site to make retried beans and Spanish rice!

My tortillas were awesome, best yet, thanks for giving us a night of Mexican food all the way over here in China!

THANK YOU, THANK YOU!! I stumbled upon your website today as I searched the web for flour tortilla recipes. I made these just after viewing your video, and five of us devoured them.

SO DELICIOUS. And easy to make! I am most grateful to you for this simple, tasty recipe. Your video was a useful tutorial.

I've not attempted to make tortillas prior to making yours, though we often eat tortillas. We're vegetarians, so I was looking for a recipe which used canola oil instead of lard. You delivered. Merci.

WOW! What a great website. Love how you show what to do and how it is supposed to look. Definitely in my favorites folder.

Where good Mexican food is hard to find.

Just made your enchilada sauce recipe and that's what I've been looking for. I like the fact it has a little heat but not too much so my kids will eat it. Thank you for posting the recipe. i am turning leftover turkey into turkey enchiladas tonight but the star is really the sauce. Thanks again.
