  • 3 tomatoes
  • 1/2 white onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1-2 chipotles in adobo
  • 1 potato
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder (or chipotle powder)
  • 1 avocado
  • 5-6 eggs
  • 8 corn tortillas
  • 2 cups refried beans
  • cilantro (optional)
  • Cotija cheese (optional)
  • sour cream (optional)


  • Wash and de-stem the tomatoes
  • Roast tomatoes in oven at 400F for 15-20 minutes
  • Dice a potato and toss with salt, pepper, a dollop of oil, and 1 teaspoon chili powder (or chipotle powder)
  • Bake diced potatoes in oven for 20-25 minutes
  • Heat up 2 cups refried beans (I sauteed them in a bit of lard)
  • For poached eggs, bring a pot of water to boil and reduce to a simmer
  • Add salt and a dollop of vinegar (optional) to the simmering water
  • Slide the eggs into the water individually and let cook for 4-6 minutes
  • When tomatoes are done roasting, add to a blender along with 1/2 white onion, 2 cloves garlic, and 1 chipotle in adobo. Pulse blend and taste for heat level.
  • Warm up the corn tortillas (I use the oven for 1-2 minutes)
  • Slice the avocado
  • Prepare the optional garnishes: chopped cilantro, Cotija cheese, sour cream
  • Serve immediately


Gathering everything in a cast iron pan or baking dish gives you the option of warming everything up for a couple minutes just before serving
If you want a a milder salsa, start by adding just one half of the chipotle and taste for heat level
