Every now and then a combination of factors come together that allows me to cook myself a really lovely breakfast. The last time I cooked it was a Sunday morning, and this recipe really set me up for the day!
I've made this recipe for just one person – because that's how I cooked it. But it would be super easy to make it for more people!

How to Make Low Carb Huevos Rancheros
Under a broiler, lightly heat a low carb tortilla until warmed through and starting to puff up. I use the medium size one from Mission with 5g net carbs per tortilla. You can put it on a silicone mat for easy clean up!
While the tortilla is warming, fry two eggs until the egg white has set.
Carefully place the cooked eggs onto the tortilla, then spoon some low carb salsa over the tortillas (there are some great options on the Netrition site). Sprinkle with shredded cheese (I use Chihuahua as it melts fast and has great flavor) and half a diced avocado. I usually sprinkle some chipotle powder over the top for extra heat, but you could also add some sliced fresh jalapeños and/or use a spicy salsa instead.
Garnish with fresh cilantro for a colorful finish. The combination of the spicy chipotle, crispy tortilla and the warm egg yolk mixing with the salsa is absolute heaven!!

I'll probably end up putting both my eggs on one wrap (less carbs), but this looks like a good alternative for toast!
