Huevos Diablos


A flavorful quick Mexican breakfast or brunch recipe. You can dial the heat up or down with the cayenne. I usually double the sauce and it freezes wonderfully.

6 eggs


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 medium onion, chopped

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can crushed tomatoes

  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 dash cayenne pepper

  • ¾ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese, divided

  • 6 large eggs

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 1 dash paprika

  • 6 (6 inch) corn tortillas, warmed


  1. Heat olive oil in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Cook onion until soft, translucent, and just beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Stir in tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce, and cayenne pepper. Bring to a simmer, lower heat, and cook tomato sauce for about 10 minutes.

  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  3. Stir 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese into tomato sauce. Add 1/4 cup of sauce to 6 small oven-safe bowls. Break 1 egg on top of each and dot with butter. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and a dash of paprika for color.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven, uncovered, just until egg whites are set but yolks are still soft, 10 to 20 minutes. Serve with tortillas.
