Sopitas (Eggs and Tortillas)

When my dear husband makes me breakfast on the weekends, this is one of his go-to meals. It’s one his mom made him, so it’s authentic Mexican. 😉

They call them sopitas, although he told me once that the real name would be chilaquiles (from what I gather, that refers to the chopped tortillas). Usually, they would just be egg and tortilla, but since my husband loves ham, he’s started adding ham when he makes them, and we both like it. 🙂  This is not exactly a hard and fast recipe, so feel free to adjust it to your preferences.  We usually just grab a few tortillas and a couple pieces of ham… so I just picked a number. 🙂


Yield: 2-3 servings
Cook time: 15 minutes


  • 3 corn tortillas
  • 2 slices of ham
  • 4 eggs


Chop your tortillas into bite-size pieces (square or triangle, or however you’d like them).

Heat your skillet on medium-high heat, and fry the tortillas in some butter or bacon grease.


While your tortillas are frying, chop your ham, and whip your eggs in a bowl with a fork.


When the tortillas get brown and crispy, add your ham and eggs.


Cook until eggs are done, and serve immediately.
