  1. HEAT oil in large nonstick skillet set over medium-high heat. COOK onion and garlic for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring often, or until softened.

  4. COOK eggs for about 5 minutes or until whites are completely set and yolks begin to thicken but are not hard. SERVE as is or flip eggs over carefully and COOK to desired doneness. SPRINKLE eggs lightly with salt and pepper.

  5. SPOON warm sauce evenly over tortillas on 4 plates.
    TOP each tortilla with fried egg and sprinkle with feta and cilantro. SERVE immediately with lime wedges.

Insider Info

Heat matters. If heat is too high, eggs will become tough and rubbery.

Roast fresh jalapenos by placing whole jalapeno peppers on a lightly oiled baking sheet and broil for about 10-15 minutes, or until skins are thoroughly blackened. Turn the peppers over to expose the other side and broil another 5-10 minutes, or until skins are thoroughly charred.
