Quick and easy Mexican breakfast recipe


Olive oil
4 corn tortillas
4 eggs
60g Lancashire cheese
A small handful chopped tarragon
Enchilada sauce (or combine tomato sauce and enchilada spice mix from Mission Mexican Enchilada Meal Kit)
Salt and pepper

To serve:

Refried beans


1) Heat the sauce gently in a pan. Melt 1-2 tbsp of olive oil in a separate frying-pan and gently turn the flatbreads in the oil. Put them in a low oven, wrapped in foil, to keep warm, along with four plates. Add the tarragon to the sauce and stir.

2) Heat the rest of the olive oil in the frying-pan and turn the heat right up until it's sizzling. Fry the eggs, two at a time, spooning the oil over the top of them so that they turn a golden colour at the edges and absorb some of the flavour. Season the eggs well with salt and pepper.

3) Put a flatbread on each plate and top with the tomato sauce. Put a fried egg on top and scatter with the grated Lancashire.

There you have it - a lively Mexican breakfast in next to no time.
