• ½ tbsp butter
  • 1 egg
  • salt and pepper
  • salt and pepper
  • ¼ red bell pepper, diced
  • 2 tbsp shredded cheese (I used cheddar jack)
  • 1 flour tortilla
  • 1 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped


  1. In a small pan over medium heat, melt the butter. Once melted, crack the egg into the pan and sprinkle with salt and pepper, to taste. Add 1 tbsp diced red pepper directly into the egg. I usually poke the yolk with my spatula to let it start running, but if you like your yolk in tact, leave it alone as the egg starts to cook through.
  2. Once the whites are opaque and the egg moves around easily when slid underneath with a spatula, around 2-3 minutes, carefully flip over and cook on the other side. Add cheese on top of the egg, and cover the cheese and egg with a tortilla. Cook for an additional 2 minutes, and flip again so the tortilla is on the bottom. Allow the tortilla to crisp up in the pan as you sprinkle the egg with some additional cheese, if desired.
  3. Remove tortilla and egg to a plate, and garnish with additional diced pepper and chopped cilantro. Enjoy!
