Ingredients

6 large
eggs
2 Tbsp
milk
1 Tbsp
butter
1/2 medium
onion, chopped
2 tsp
minced garlic
4 oz
can chopped green chilies
1/2 large
tomato, chopped
1/4 c
crushed tortilla chips
1/2 c
shredded monterey jack cheese
1/2 c
shredded sharp cheddar cheese
4
(8-inch) flour tortillas
hot sauce (optional)
optional garnishes: sour cream, chopped green onions

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a medium bowl, beat eggs lightly with the milk; set aside.
2
Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion, garlic, green chiles and tomato in the melted butter until tomato is soft and onion is transparent, about 5 minutes. Pour eggs over the sautéed vegetables, and cook about 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently, or until eggs are slightly set.
3
Sprinkle tortilla chips over eggs, and stir chips into eggs. Turn off heat, and sprinkle both cheeses over the egg mixture. Cover skillet and set aside until cheese is melted and eggs are cooked through, about 5 minutes.
4
Meanwhile, stack flour tortillas on a microwave-safe plate; microwave until tortillas are warmed, about 30 seconds.
5
Divide the egg mixture among the warmed tortillas, and top with hot sauce, a dollop of sour cream, or chopped green onions, if desired.
