Introduction: Fried Egg Tortilla With Cucumber Jalapeño Salsa

A nice simple recipe. I like to make the tortillas for this dish extra crispy and then fold them down the middle to make hard shell egg tacos. It's a pretty fast meal to make in the mornings'. Use gluten-free corn tortillas to make this a gluten-free meal. This recipe can also be found at gardengirlrecipes.com.

.

Ingredients:

4 corn tortillas (gluten-free if desired)

4 large eggs

2 tablespoons coconut oil

sprinkle salt and pepper


for the salsa:

2-4 cucumber (depending on the variety), finely diced

1 jalapeno, finely diced

1-2 tablespoons cilantro, roughly chopped

juice of 1 lime

salt and pepper to taste

Sriracha hot sauce, to serve

    Do you fold it and eat it as a taco or fight it with a knife and fork?

    I fold it and eat it like a taco. My husband makes his tortilla extra crispy and eats it like a tostada.

    Thank you. :) I found that the egg came out better in a smaller frying pan.
