Queso fresco, green tomatillo salsa, and corn tortillas bring authentic Tex-Mex flavor to the breakfast table.


  • 1 cup green (tomatillo) salsa
  • 2 plum tomatoes, diced
  • 6 6-inch corn tortillas, halved and cut into thin strips
  • 12 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup queso fresco, crumbled


  • Coat 12-inch nonstick skillet with ovenproof handle with cooking spray; heat over medium heat until hot. Add salsa and tomatoes; cook and stir 2 minutes. Add tortilla strips; stir to coat. Cook 1 minute.
  • Pour eggs over mixture in skillet. As eggs begin to set, gently pull the eggs across the pan with an inverted spatula, forming large soft curds. Continue cooking—pulling, lifting, and folding eggs—until thickened and no visible liquid egg remains. Do not stir constantly.
  • Sprinkle cheese over eggs. Broil 6 inches from heat until cheese softens, 2–3 minutes.
