Corn Tortillas

Tear the corn tortillas into small bite-sizes bits and fry them in the vegetable oil in a large pan on the stove.

When they are crispy add eggs that are scrambled into the pan and stir until eggs are cooked.  Put in 2-3 Tablespoons of salsa and top with cheese.

Portion depends on how many are eating.   4 tortillas work for 2 folks with 2 eggs.
