- 1 avocado
- 1 lime
- 2 tomatoes
- 1 red chili - optional
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 3 tbsp canola/vegetable oil
- 4 eggs
- 4 tortilla
- fresh cilantro
- black pepper (or taco seasoning)
Cut the avocado in half and remove the skin, then cut it into thin slices and arrange on a place.
Squeeze the lime juice over the avocado and sprinkle with salt. Set to one side.
Finely chop the tomato and red chili, then mix together in a bowl with the olive oil. Set to one side.
Place each tortilla over your gas burner for 15-30 seconds, then use tongs to turn and cook the other side. The tacos should be charred and pliable.
If you have an electric stovetop, place a frying pan over the heat for 5 minutes then char the tortillas in the pan.
Cover the tortilla gently to keep them warm.
Heat the canola oil in a large cast-iron skillet or non-stick frying pan. Once shimmering hot, crack in the eggs and cook for a minute without touching. Once the edges have started to solidify and crisp up. Carefully tip the pan to the side so the oil pools. Use a spoon to baste the oil over the eggs cooking the top of the white and yolk to your liking.
To serve, arrange the sliced avocado on each tortilla, spoon over some of the tomato and chili mixture, then top with a fried egg, plenty of cilantro and cracked black pepper.
