  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Place tortillas on baking sheet and bake 3 minutes on each side.
  3. Meanwhile, place the tomatoes, cumin, cayenne, and salt in a medium nonstick skillet and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium low and cook, covered, 3 minutes or until slightly thickened. Break one egg into a measuring cup. Carefully slide egg onto the tomato mixture. Repeat with the remaining eggs. Simmer gently over medium heat, covered, 2 ½ to 3 minutes or until whites are completely set and yolks just begin to thicken slightly.*
  4. Place a tortilla on each of four dinner plates. Top with the tomato mixture and eggs. Sprinkle with cheese and cilantro.

1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
1/2 teaspoon salt
