Ingredients
  

  • ½ cup vegetable oil for frying
  • 6 street taco flour tortillas
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 tsp white vinegar
  • 6 large cold eggs
  • 1 ½ cups Guacamole double batch
  • 1 ½ cups Carnitas Chicken or other meat of choice such as chorizo, pulled pork, or leftover taco meat, heated
  • 1 ½ cups Huevos Ranchero Sauce heated
  • garnish: chopped cilantro and fresh sliced jalapeno

Instructions
 

  • Heat the oil in a medium skillet. One by one, add a tortilla and cook until very golden on the bottom, flip, and repeat for the other side. Use kitchen tongs to pop a hole and release air if they puff too much.
  • Heat ~3-inches water in a pot to a simmer. Add the salt and vinegar.
  • Crack an egg into a small bowl. Use the end of a wooden spoon to stir the water in the pot to make a gentle whirlpool (stress gentle, we don't want a tsunami). Gently pour the egg into the center of the whirlpool. Turn off the heat, place on the lid of the pot, and cook 5 minutes. Immediately remove the egg with a slotted spoon.
  • While egg is poaching (no peeking!), take a toasted tortilla and spread a layer of guacamole, then chicken. Top with the poached egg and ranchero sauce. Garnish with cilantro and jalapeno.

Notes

If desired, more than one egg can be poached at a time. In this case, do not make the whirlpool. Simply space eggs apart from each other and proceed.
