Instructions Checklist
  • Mash the garlic, caraway seeds, and pinch of salt in a mortar and pestle or against the side of a mixing bowl.

  • Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the chile peppers; cook and stir until the peppers have softened, about 5 minutes. Remove them from the skillet and set aside. Add another tablespoon of oil to the skillet and cook the bell peppers and tomatoes until the peppers are soft and the tomatoes have begun to break down, about 5 more minutes. Add the tomato-bell pepper mixture to the hot peppers. Stir in the mashed garlic and caraway seeds. Spoon the vegetables onto plates or a serving platter.

  • Heat the remaining oil in the skillet. Fry the eggs until the whites are set and the yolks are the desired consistency, about 2 to 3 minutes for runny yolks, 4 to 5 minutes for fully set yolks. Place the fried eggs on the vegetable mixture and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Editor's Note:

Tastira can be hot or mild, depending upon the type of chile peppers used.

Tasty delicious and healthy! I didn't want this to be spicy because my two toddlers were eating it too so I only used a combination of 1 jalapeno seeded and red and yellow bell pepers only used half tablespoon of caraway seeds but next time I'll use the full amount (interesting but lovely adittion to the dish) and instead of fresh tomatoes I used one can of diced tomatoes (didn't have fresh). We ate this with a side of potatoes that I sliced thinly and fried with a little olive oil and a sprinkling of salt and pepper and some toast. One more to the recipe box! Thanks Asma and mother in law for sharing your recipe! Elvira Silva. Read More

This was very simple and filling. I had thought to alter the recipe and add fried diced potatoes but used the submitters suggestion of serving with a crusty bread instead. Very good but I think I would like to try it with potatoes as well. Thanks! Read More

YUM! I only used 1 t. caraway because I wasn't sure about that. But it was delicious. I used 1 poblano and 2 jalapenos and that was just about the perfect amount of "hot peppers." It wasn't too hot at all. Read More
