Ingredients

Scale

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

Instructions

  1. Preheat 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.
  2. During 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.
  3. Warm 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.
  4. Meanwhile, 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.
  5. Spread a thin layer of sour cream over each tortilla. Top with potatoes, onion, fried egg, and avocado slices. Serve immediately.
