Egg Tortilla with Cumin Sour Cream

  • FAST

In this delicious riff on a quesadilla, eggs are lightly scrambled, then a corn tortilla is pressed onto them and they're cooked further with grated cheese.

  1. 2 tablespoons sour cream
  2. Pinch of ground cumin
  3. Kosher salt
  4. 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  5. 2 large eggs, beaten
  6. 1 corn tortilla
  7. 3 tablespoons freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
  8. Chopped chives and chopped pitted green olives, for garnish
  1. In a small bowl, mix the sour cream with the cumin and season with salt. In a 6-inch skillet, heat the olive oil. Add the eggs and cook over moderate heat without stirring, until set at the edges, about 1 minute. Place the tortilla over the eggs, press gently and cook until the eggs are just set, about 2 minutes. Flip the eggs and tortilla and sprinkle on half of the cheese. Cook until the tortilla is golden on the bottom, about 2 minutes. Slide the tortilla onto a plate. Top with the remaining cheese and garnish with chives and olives. Serve with a dollop of the cumin sour cream.
