...so i love eggs, well i love certain kinds of eggs, fried with a runny yolk for dipping, omelets with all kinds of filling especially avocado, cream cheese, green onion, and cilantro...but my perfect breakfast, the one that i crave, makes me mouth water just thinking about it, is a breakfast that  my fiance and i came up with just kind of out of the blue one day and it has grown into our special breakfast that we make when we have days off together (which if you know us are a special treat for us since we both work crazy hours, so this must be really special...and it is!!!**) so with no further ado---->
sriracha eggs, fried tortillas, and pico de gallo w/ avocado

this is how you start this glorious breakfast, it is some what a job for 2 if you are not a trained professional like me because you need to be doing a few things at once, this is why it is a GREAT breakfast for you and someone special to make and enjoy together.

1) Sriracha Eggs
crack 4 eggs in a bowl
2 T milk
1 T sriracha 
(or more if you like it spicy like we do, we do 2 T)
1 t garlic salt
scramble this all up and pour into a medium hot saute pan that has a little oil and cook as normal 
then add:
2 T cream cheese
1/4 shredded chihuahua cheese

You will need 2 saute pans that are about the same size and one should be none stick for the eggs.

2) Fried Tortilla
Although we love corn tortilla this breakfast is WAY WAY better with flour tortillas, 
you could even use the wheat ones if you wanted. 
You will need 4 or 5 tortillas for the 2 of you unless you are really hungry and want more, 
but the eggs will cover 5.
to fry the tortilla you just need a thin coating of oil in your pan that is on medium high heat. Once the oil is hot you can drip one tortilla in at a time and get it golden brown on each side, you don;t want to fry it until it is hard just enough to get that toasted flavor and for it to be hot, when golden brown remove from pan sprinkle lightly wit salt and place on a plate with paper towel underneath and one to cover on top to keep the heat in. ((**this is why i recommend 2 people so one person can cook the eggs and do the chopping and the other can fry the tortillas**))

3) Pico de GaLLo w/ aVoCadO
1 tomato, diced
1/2 small red onion, diced
1/2 c. cilantro, chopped
1 avocado, diced
salt to taste
then mix in with the eggs and serve

..so there you have it, my 3 step SUPER easy but SUPER delicious breakfast treat for you and someone you love. I know you will LOVE it! 
Enjoy my perfect breakfast, and share with me yours :o)
