Eggs In Spicy Tomato Sauce


Prep time: 35 Minutes

Total time: 35 Minutes

Yield: Serves 4


  • 4 (about 4 ounces) bacon cut 1/2 inch thick crosswise
  • 4 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons chopped chipotle chiles in adobo
  • 2 (28 ounces each) cans whole peeled tomatoes in juice
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • Tortilla chips for serving (optional)


  1. Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium heat, turning occasionally, until browned, 4 to 5 minutes; transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
  2. IAdd garlic and chiles to rendered fat in skillet; cook, stirring, until garlic is just golden, 30 to 60 seconds. Add tomatoes and juice; simmer over medium heat, breaking up tomatoes with a spoon and stirring occasionally, until thickened, 15 to 20 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Reduce heat to low. One at a time, crack eggs into a small bowl or cup, and slide onto sauce in skillet, spacing so that all eggs will fit. Cover; cook very gently until egg whites are just opaque (yolks should still be soft), 6 to 9 minutes. Spoon into four serving bowls; sprinkle with feta and bacon. Serve with tortilla chips, if desired.
