    List of Ingredients

    Corn oil
    6 corn tortillas
    12 eggs
    For the green chili sauce:
    8 ounces ground beef
    1 1/2 pints water
    2 medium tomatoes, chopped
    1 large roasted green chili, chopped
    1/2 onion, finely chopped
    1 clove garlic, crushed
    Dash of Worstershire sauce
    Black pepper, freshly ground
    2 tablespoons corn flour


    To make the chili sauce, brown the beef in a little oil over medium heat. Add all the other ingredients, except the corn flour, and stir. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 10-15 minutes. Add the cornflour (mixed with a little water), stir well and cook for 10 minutes more. ( The sauce keeps in the fridge and can be frozen. It may need more liquid if too thick after thawing). Keep the sauce hot.

    Heat the oil in a large frying pan and cook the tortillas, one at a time, for a few seconds on each side (do not let them become crisp). Drain on a paper towel. Pour off most of the oil, then return the pan to a low heat. Fry the eggs 2 or 3 at a time. Top each tortilla with 2 eggs and pour a ladle of green chili sauce over each portion. Serve with refried beans.
