  1. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir green chiles and tomato in the melted butter until tomato is softened, about 5 minutes. Crack eggs directly into the skillet and stir until yolks break; cook until eggs are scrambled and slightly set, 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. Sprinkle tortilla chips over eggs; mix chips into eggs. Move egg mixture to the side of the skillet, turn off heat, and sprinkle egg mixture with Cheddar cheese. Cover skillet and set aside until cheese is melted and eggs are cooked through, about 5 minutes.
  3. Stack flour tortillas on a microwave-safe plate; microwave until tortillas are warmed, about 30 seconds.
  4. Spoon egg mixture onto each tortilla and top with about 1 tablespoon taco sauce.

I made this for Recipe Group. I tweaked it a bit - I know I shouldn't, but I did - due to what I had on hand. My first tweak was to use some garlic butter that I had in my fridge that needed to be used. I nearly bought tomato yesterday, but remembered I had some at home - yellow cherries I was going to quarter. Well, I'm not sure what happened to those tomatoes, but they're not in my fridge! So I rummaged around in my pantry and found diced tomatoes with green chilies. I did add another tbsp of diced green chilies, because I had already opened my can - and it didn't look like there was much in the tomatoes. I did not want to buy a bag of tortilla chips to use 1/4 c. I had just bought some Pringles Tortillas-Southwestern Ranch - so I used those. I did use a little extra, simply because 1/4 didn't seem like enough for 6 eggs. I also used extra [colby jack] cheese. I used up a bag, not bothering to measure. My final tweak was to use my favorite corn & whole wheat blend tortillas, warming them on my burner - I prefer the taste of tortillas on the burner to tortillas in the microwave.... These were yummy, and received high praise from my company (=

Pretty hearty breakfast, and very quick and easy. I added in some minced onion after reading the previous review, a great addition. I didn't really care for the crushed tortillas, but my husband liked them.

I used one whole tomato and I sauteed a little fresh minced onion and garlic in the butter before adding the green chilies. Oh my goodness. This was SO good. The kids really enjoyed it, too. NO leftovers.

Excellent recipe for a Tex-Mex breakfast. I added in some diced onions and omitted the chips, because I didn't have any on hand. A definite keeper. Thanks!

Yum, I made these Christmas morning and everyone loved them. I use recipes like this to clean out the fridge. I sauteed onion, garlic, bell pepper, and jalapeno for a few minutes and then threw in some leftover ham (didn't have canned chilies or a tomato). Added an avocado on top.

Easy to make and filling. Great recipe.

We really enjoyed this recipe! I substituted the green chile with chipotle chile, and the flavor was wonderful! The only thing I will change next time is adding the tortilla chips a little later so they keep more of their crunch for added texture. Thanks so much for this recipe!

Recipe Group Selection: 11, January 2014 ~ Love to fix fast, filling breakfast items. We enjoyed this breakfast, but weren't crazy with the added crunch of the crushed tortilla chips. I know I will make these again, but probably without the added chips.
