  • 1 avocado
  • 1 lime
  • salt
  • 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.
