Ingredient List

  • Half small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 small jalapeño, thinly sliced (optional)
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) lime juice
  • ¼ tsp (1 mL) salt
  • ¼ tsp (1 mL) granulated sugar
  • 1 box Old El Paso Soft Taco Dinner Kit
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) ketchup
  • 4 tbsp (60 mL) vegetable oil, divided
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 can (127 mL) Old El Paso Chopped Green Chilies
  • 11/2 cups (375 mL) baby arugula or baby spinach or a mix
  • Handful cilantro with stems or mint or parsley


  1. Stir red onion, jalapeño (if using), lime juice, salt and sugar in a small bowl. Let stand to soften for 5 minutes.
  2. Stir taco sauce, ketchup and 1 teaspoon of the taco spice in a small bowl. Set aside.
  3. Heat 2 tsp of oil in a small nonstick skillet over medium heat. Crack 1 egg into pan and cook, breaking up the yolk to create a circle. Sprinkle a pinch of the taco spice over the egg and place tortilla directly on top; cook 30 to 45 seconds. Flip; sprinkle another pinch of taco spice and move the tortilla around the pan to catch the remaining oil and cook until puffed and browned on the bottom. Remove to a baking sheet.
  4. Repeat with remaining oil, eggs, taco spice, and tortillas.
  5. Spoon some of the green chilies over top each egg tortilla; sprinkle with lettuce, red onion mixture, cilantro, and roll up. Serve with taco sauce-ketchup mixture for some fun dipping action.
  6. Double the recipe to make 12 tortilla rolls if desired.
