Ingredients

  • 6 eggs
  • 1 potato
  • 2 jalapeños
  • 1/2 Cup ham (or sausage)
  • 1/2 Cup Monterey Jack cheese (or cheddar)
  • 8 tortillas
  • 1/2 Teaspoon chili powder (or chipotle powder)
  • Vegetable oil for cooking and brushing

Directions

Finely chop the potato and add to a bowl along with salt, pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon chili powder (or chipotle powder).

Cover bowl and shake vigorously until coated.

Bake at 400F for 15-20 minutes.

Finely chop 1/4 white onion, 2 jalapenos, ham and Monterey Jack cheese until you have approximately 1/2 cup of each.

Saute the onion and jalapeno in 2 to 3 tablespoons of oil for a few minutes.

Add the ham along with generous dashes of salt and freshly ground pepper.

Add the eggs and cook until just slightly underdone.

Warm up the tortillas briefly, this will help make them more flexible.

Each tortilla gets generous helpings of potatoes, cheese and the egg mixture.

Roll tight and place seam side down on a lined baking sheet.

Brush with oil or lard.

Bake for 12-15 minutes.

Turn the taquitos over halfway.

When the edges are darkening and crisping up they are done.

Serve immediately with hot sauce of your choice.
