Nutritional Information

This is a breakfast bowl of deliciousness!


  • 4 poblano chiles
  • 2 jalapenos chiles
  • 1 pound tomatillos, husked, rinsed, and quartered
  • 3 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra for drizzling tomatillos
  • 8 tortillas
  • Olive oil cooking spray
  • 1 large onion, finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • Pinch paprika, plus extra for garnish
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 8 large coddled eggs, see recipe
  • 4 ounces queso fresco or feta cheese, crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves


  • 1. Preheat the Egg to 375 degrees F using direct heat and a cast iron grate.
  • 2. Roast the poblano and jalepeno chiles turning until charred on all sides. Put chiles in a bowl, cover and steam until soft and cool, about 20 minutes. Peel, seed, and chop. Convert the Egg to indirect heat at 375º.
  • 3. Spread the tomatillos on a foil-lined pan, season with salt, pepper and drizzle with olive oil. Bake in the Egg until soft and slightly charred, 30 minutes. Meanwhile, cut tortillas into wedges and lay out on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Spray both sides with olive oil spray and bake until crisp and golden, turning half way in between, 8 minutes per side. (These can also be grilled over direct heat after roasting the peppers if desired.)
  • 4. In a preheated cast iron skillet, saute onions and garlic in extra-virgin olive oil until soft and starting to brown, 8 minutes. Add peppers, tomatoes, cumin, paprika, sugar and water and cook until tomatoes begin to burst and flavors come together, 5 minutes.
  • 5. Divide sauce between small dishes. Coddle the eggs and lay 1 egg on each plate over sauce. Garnish with a couple of baked tortillas, crumbled queso fresco, a pinch of paprika and chopped cilantro.
