Mexican breakfast

I love love love this Mexican breakfast wrap. It's filling, simple to make and healthy!! The photo just doesn't do justice to it.

Serves 1-2


2 multigrain tortillas
2 eggs
1/8 cup grated mozarella cheese
Oil for cooking

For the Salsa

1 large onion finely chopped
2 medium tomatoes finely chopped
2 cloves of garlic minced
2 tsp red chilli flakes ( or as per taste)
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried basil 
( I used fresh herbs but dried herbs are fine too)
1/4 tsp salt or as per taste
1/4 cup water
Oil for cooking


In a sauce pan, add 2 tbsp of oil and fry the onions till translucent. Add the garlic and fry for a minute. Add in the tomatoes and chilli flakes and cover and cook for 2 minutes on a medium flame. Add the herbs, salt and water ( add water if the mixture is too dry.). Cover and cook for 5-8 minutes.

Heat the tortilla on a skillet for a minute on both sides or in the microwave for 30 seconds.

Prepare the egg - Scrambled, fried, half fried or poached - as you prefer your eggs.

Spoon half the cooked salsa mixture on the tortilla. Place the cooked egg on top of the salsa. Add half the cheese (skip the cheese if you want to make it healthier). The cheese will melt from the heat of the hot sauce and eggs.

Make it into a wrap and enjoy. It does get really messy while eating but that just makes it more satisfying ;)
