  • 1 28- ounce bag Potatoes O'Brien
  • 1 16- ounce can refried beans
  • 4 corn tortillas

  • 3 tablespoons canola oil divided and possibly more
  • 1 cup Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups salsa
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onion
  • 1/4 cup crumbled Cotija cheese
  • 3 tablespoons freshly chopped cilantro
  1. Note: this works very well if you have a person to help you with assembly, but it can be done by one person.
  2. Preheat oven to the lowest setting, and place six plates into the oven to warm - 4 four serving, one to keep tortillas warm.

  8. Once tortillas have been fried, reduce heat to medium low and add two tablespoons oil to the skillet to cook the eggs.
  9. Cook eggs two at a time for two minutes. Gently spoon some oil over the tops to set them. This cooking time with give you firm whites and the yolks will be runny when broken into. YUM!
