  • 1 pint/500 mL wide-mouth mason jar
  • 1 8-inch flour tortilla
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (divided)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1/4 cup salsa
  • 1/4 cup red bell pepper (chopped)
  • 1/4 cup avocado (chopped)
  • 1/4 cup dry-cured chorizo (diced)
  • 1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese


  • Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a baking sheet with foil.
  • Tightly roll up a flour tortilla, then cut into thin strips. In a small bowl, toss the tortilla strips with 1 tablespoon (15 mL) of oil until well-coated.
  • Arrange the strips in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet, then place in the oven and bake for about 10 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven and allow the tortilla strips to cool completely in the pan.
  • Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk the egg and milk until smooth.
  • In a medium skillet, heat the remaining oil over medium heat. Add the egg mixture while tilting the pan to cover the bottom with a thin layer of egg.
  • Cook for about 3 minutes or until the egg is almost set, then flip and cook for 1 more minute.
  • Remove the egg from heat. Once cool, roll it up tightly and cut into thin strips.
  • Add the salsa to your jar. Next, layer the egg strips, bell pepper, avocado, chorizo, cheese, and tortilla strips.


This recipe is for 1 serving of breakfast in a jar.
When chopping the avocados, squeeze a bit of lemon or lime juice over them to prevent browning.
To store, seal the jar and keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
