Tex-Mex Frittata Recipe

Tex-Mex Frittata  

6 corn tortillas
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 cup chopped onions
1 (4-ounce) can chopped chilies
6 eggs, beaten
Salt & freshly ground pepper to taste
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1 medium ripe tomato, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro
Salsa for garnish

Stack tortillas and cut into 12 wedges; separate. Heat oil in 10-inch skillet just until hot. Fry tortilla wedges over medium-high heat until crisp, stirring frequently.
Reduce heat and add onions, cooking until onions begin to soften. Add beaten eggs, salt and pepper. As eggs begin to set at the bottom and sides, gently lift cooked portions with spatula so that uncooked egg can flow to bottom. Do not stir. When nearly set, sprinkle with the cheese, cover, and heat until cheese has melted and egg is cooked to desired doneness. Sprinkle with chopped tomato and cilantro. Serve in wedges garnished with salsa.
