    Ingredients
    2
    pounds
    tomatoes, coarsely chopped
    1/4
    cup
    fresh cilantro, plus more for garnish, coarsely chopped
    1/4
    medium yellow onion, coarsely chopped
    2
    garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
    1
    teaspoon
    chipotle powder
    1
    tablespoon
    canola or vegetable oil
    4
    large eggs
    4
    corn tortillas, toasted
    1
    ripe Hass avocado, peeled, pitted, and sliced
    1/2
    cup
    crumbled queso fresco
    *
    kosher salt
    Directions
    In a blender or food processor, puree the tomatoes, cilantro, onion, garlic, and chipotle powder, adding a little bit of water as needed. Puree until you have a thin sauce.
    Heat a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the cooking oil to the pan and heat until shimmering. Add the tomato sauce—be careful because it will spatter—and boil, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, about 3 minutes. Season with salt.
    One at a time, crack each egg into a ramekin and slowly add the egg to the sauce. Continue with the other eggs. Turn the heat down to low, cover, and cook for about 6 to 7 minutes for eggs with soft yolks or 10 minutes for fully cooked eggs.
    For each serving, place a tortilla on a plate; top with an egg and a quarter of the sauce. Top each with avocado slices and a sprinkle of the cilantro and queso fresco.
