1 tbsp Olive oil
1/2 Medium-size onion, chopped
3/4 cup Tomato juice, OR 1/2 cup tomato sauce thinned with 2
Tbsp water
1 small Clove garlic, minced
3 Whole chiles, parched, peeled and chopped, OR 4 oz
Canned whole green chiles, chopped
3/4 tsp Ground cumin
1/4 tsp Ground Mexican oregano
1/2 tsp Salt
4 Corn tortillas
4 To 8 eggs
2 Avocados, peeled and thinly sliced lengthwise
1/2 cup Grated Monterey Jack or Cheddar cheese
4 Lettuce leaves, coarsely chopped
...Serve fresh fruit, warm wheat-flour tortillas, sweet butter, honey
and coffee for a great brunch.

1. In a medium-size saucepan, heat the oil, add the chopped onion,
and fry over medium heat until the onion is translucent. Add tomato
juice, garlic, chiles, herbs, and salt. Reduce heat to simmer for
about 10 minutes. Sauce can be made a day or hours ahead of time and
left at this point.

2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Warm the tortillas by wrapping in
foil and placing on the 4 serving plates (Mexican pottery if
possible) in the warm oven. At the same time, warm the extra
tortillas you are serving as bread.

3. Poach the eggs, using an egg poacher or a frying pan of hot water
with 2 tablespoons vinegar and 1 teaspoon salt added. First break an
egg into a cup, then stir the water in the frying pan vigorously in a
circular motion. As you stir, slide the egg from the cup into the
water. Cover the pan when all eggs have been added.

4. To assemble the dish, place a tortilla on a plate. Top with a
circle of avocado slices, then arrange a drained poached egg (or 2
eggs) on top, spoon sauce over, and sprinkle with cheese. Place in
the oven until cheese melts. Add the lettuce garnish after the
cheese has melted.

Variation: Instead of the tortillas, rinse large "cupped" iceberg
lettuce leaves and serve the eggs topped with sauce in the lettuce

Makes 4 servings.
