Ingredients: 
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/2 jalapeño pepper, chopped
  • 1 Anaheim or small green pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 small yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 1 (28-ounce) can diced fire-roasted tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon chile powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro, plus more for garnish
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges
  • Hot sauce to taste
  • 4 corn tortillas, warmed
Method: 
Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add oil, garlic, peppers and onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, salt, chile powder, garlic powder and cilantro; simmer for 10 minutes. Stir in lime juice.

Carefully purée sauce in blender, in batches if necessary, then return to pan. Add enough broth to thin out the sauce, then bring to a simmer. Crack eggs into sauce, leaving space between each egg. Cover and poach eggs until egg whites are opaque and yolks are light yellow, about 10 minutes.

Transfer to plates and serve topped with avocado and cheese. Garnish with cilantro and lime wedges and serve with hot sauce and tortillas on the side.
