Roasted Potatoes:

1 russet potato, halved lengthwise and cut into 1/4” thick pieces

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 teaspoons olive oil

1 teaspoon cumin

1/2 teaspoon chile powder

salt and pepper, to taste

Sautéed Onions:

1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil

1/2 yellow onion, chopped

salt and pepper, to taste

Fried Eggs:

1 tablespoon olive oil

4 eggs

salt and pepper, to taste

Tortillas and Garnish:

4 flour tortillas

sour cream

1 avocado, pitted, quartered, and sliced


1Preheat oven to 425ºF and grease a baking sheet with nonstick spray. Combine potatoes, garlic, olive oil, cumin, chile powder, salt, and pepper in a large bowl and toss to evenly combine. Spread onto a prepared baking sheet in a single, even layer. Roast for approximately 25 minutes, until potatoes are golden-brown and fork-tender.

2During the last 10-15 minutes of roasting potatoes, warm a small skillet with 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil over medium heat. Add onions, season will salt and pepper to taste, and sauté until translucent, about 5 minutes. Turn off heat.

3Warm a large skillet with 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium-low heat. Crack eggs into pan, season with salt and pepper, and cook 4-6 minutes, or until whites are set and yolks are cooked as desired.

4Meanwhile, toast tortillas in a skillet set over medium to medium-low heat, or directly on a gas grill, for 1 1/2 – 2 minutes per side, or until golden-brown and crisp.

5Spread a thin layer of sour cream over each tortilla. Top with potatoes, onion, fried egg, and avocado slices. Serve immediately.
