Mexican Eggs – Get the wave Rolling!

Mexican Eggs - The perfect brunch.

I first tasted this dish in the Kalahari. Chris Mostert was the chef and I immediately knew this was a recipe that must be shared.

You will need

Serves 6

A wok or a pan that can be used outdoors

Oil for frying

2 packets of bacon

2 big onions finely sliced

3 teaspoons of chopped chili (or to taste)

3 tins of chopped whole tomatoes

Spices to flavor. I have used a blend of Italian Herbs and it worked out perfectly.

4 fat cloves of garlic – sliced

Salt and pepper

10 eggs

2 types of cheese (Cheddar and Mozzarella)

Fresh coriander

Pumpkin seeds

You will have to

1.  Light a fire or your gas implement. When this is ready heat your wok or pan.

2.  Cut the bacon into pieces and fry till crisp.  Take out and set aside.

3.  Add onions, garlic and chilies to the wok and fry for about 5 minutes or till soft.

4.  Add tomatoes and cook down to a thick sauce.

5.  Season with salt and pepper and add spices.

6.  Make hollows in the mixture and break an egg into each.

7.  Sprinkle the bacon over the eggs and tomatoe mixture.

8.  Cut the cheese into 1cm pieces and sprinkle over the mixture.

9.  Cover the pan. The dish will be ready when the egg whites are firm.

10. Serve immediately, garnished with the chopped coriander and pumpkin seeds.

Now open wide and shout: Olé! Olé!
