Poached Eggs Over Cheesy Corn Tortillas


Recently I was visiting with some family and we were discussing the art of poached eggs. It’s one of those should-be-so-simple-to-do things that if you’re like me, you watched your grandma do it countless times, but it’s no longer such a common breakfast item made at home. I have noticed, however that it’s making a comeback in restaurants with all kinds of awesome variations. You can still order a traditional Eggs Benedict, but I love all of the creativity and style along with it. I am a pretty big fan of eggs. I eat them for pretty much any meal and I love to add them on top of some of my favorite meals. They are a great source of protein and I’m not going to get into the cholesterol discussion 😉.  This morning I was craving something cheesy and flavorful so I poached two eggs and put them on top of two cheesy fried corn tortillas topped with salsa and avocado. The poaching instructions are as follows:

Poached Eggs Over Cheesy Corn Tortillas

  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp White Wine Vinegar
  • 2 Corn Tortillas
  • 1/2 c Shredded Cheese
  • T tbsp. Salsa
  • 1/4 Avocado, Sliced
  • 1 tsp Chopped Cilantro
  1. Heat a shallow non-stick pan with 1.5" of 190 degree simmering water. Use a thermometer to make sure the temperature is right and stays consistently just hot enough that you can stand to put your fingers in.
  2. Add a tsp of white wine vinegar.
  3. Add 1 tsp of salt. 
  4. Crack your eggs into small custard dishes for easy transferring.
  5.  After a quick stir of the water, carefully place the egg dishes into the water and release the eggs to float in the water. 
  6. Cover the pan with a lid and let them poach for 5 minutes on the timer without removing the lid or checking on them.
  7. While the eggs are poaching fry two corn tortillas in some butter.
  8. Flip them over, add some shredded cheese and fold in half.
  9. Fry them to a light crisp until the cheese is melted and then set them aside on a plate. 
  10. When the 5 minutes is up for your eggs, use a slotted spoon to remove each egg from the water. You can lay them on a paper towel and cut off any excess pieces if you are able to pick them back up without breaking the yokes. I am that klutzy person so if you're like me just place them on your food or plate and trim the excess from there.
  11. Top with salsa, fresh avocado, cilantro and any other delicious toppings you have on hand.
  12. Enjoy!

Have you noticed that there are a lot of memes out there descrbing what we expect or desire to gain out of a relationship? Even as we view these biblical attributes of love, how many of us, if we’re honest would say we immediately looked at what we could gain in a relationship with someone who would love us this way before looking inwardly?  These traits are difficult and should put us all on blast, but this is how God loves us. Let’s make this a challenge for the month of February. That instead of looking for someone to meet OUR needs that we read these attributes and strive to BE that person no matter HOW others act or respond.. The tricky part is doing it without expectations in return. The truth is, people generally don’t know how to respond to real, healthy love so don’t be surprised if people respond a little rough and question your motives. Don’t forget to pray and ask God to do this work in your heart first. We have no purity of heart on our own so if we try to do this apart from God we might succeed at being nice for a short time but we will not have a lasting and genuine heart change. Who is with me in this challenge?
