Yield: 6 servings


  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 6 (7 to 8 inch) flour tortillas, cut into strips
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion (1 medium)
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 cups chopped tomatoes (2 medium)
  • 1 jalapeño chile, seeded and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh, snipped cilantro
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 ounces Colby cheese, shredded (1/2 cup)


  1. Heat the butter and oil in a 10 inch skillet over medium heat until hot. Add the tortilla strips and onion; cook, stirring occasionally, until the tortillas are brown.
  2. Mix the remaining ingredients except the cheese and pour into the skillet. As the mixture begins to set at the bottom and sides, gently lift the cooked portion so that the uncooked eggs can run under the cooked portion. Avoid constant stirring. Turn the egg mixture, cook until the eggs are all cooked through but still moist, 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Sprinkle with the cheese and serve.
