Huevos Rancheros

So, did you make any tortillas yesterday?
If not, here's another reason to do so today.

Half of my reasoning for making tortillas the other day was so I could eat them for breakfast. If someone had told me years ago that fried eggs taste amazing with lime juice and avocados I probably would have raised one eyebrow and let out a "Huh?".
But trust me it's SO good.

So here's what I do:

For starters when I make a batch of tortillas I only roll out enough to eat for that meal and leave the rest of the little dough balls on a plate covered in plastic wrap in the fridge for later. 

So this morning I rolled out two of those little beauties and fried them up. 
Meanwhile I sliced half an avocado and juiced half a lime over it, letting it sit there in lime juice. 
I shredded a little gouda (or whatever cheese I have on hand) and sprinkled it over the warm tortillas, along with a few small spoonfuls of green salsa. 
While my eggs are frying, I arranged the avocado slices over the cheese and salsa, and sprinkle any remaining lime juice over everything. 
Finally I top the tortillas with the fried eggs (sprinkled with a pinch of salt) and then I dig in!
