Total Time
20 Minutes
150g of Tesco Chestnut Baby mushrooms, sliced
3 eggs
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 tbsp of olive oil
1 fresh green chilli, chopped
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
½ red pepper, sliced
30g of spinach
½ tsp of smoked paprika
Molcajete Salsa (Ash)
2 bell peppers
2 red onions
4 tomatoes
1 chilli
1 lime
1 tbsp of olive oil
A handful of chopped coriander
Step 1

Set up your grill for the Half & Half Technique (charcoal on one side, no charcoal on the other).

Step 2

Fire up your coals (lump wood charcoal only/no briquettes). Once coal is cooking, carefully place the peppers, onions, chillis and tomatoes onto the white coals. Turn the veggies every 3-5 minutes until you’ve achieved a lovely little char on the veg.

Step 3

The chillies will be done first, followed by the tomatoes, peppers and onions. Take them off to cool.

Step 4

Roughly peel as you want to keep a little bit of the charred goodness. Chop and combine.

Step 5

Squeeze in a lime, mix in a tbsp of olive oil and finally mix in your chopped coriander.

Step 6

Heat the oil in the pan and soften the onions, garlic and peppers. Add the mushrooms, paprika and give good stir. Cook for 4-5 minutes. Add the tomatoes and simmer for a few minutes.

Step 7

With a spoon, make small indentations in the sauce the create a little vessel to cook your eggs. Crack your eggs and gently drop them into the sauce.

Step 8

Turn the heat down, cover and cook for 6-8 minutes. Go soft or go hard, just make sure they're cooked.

Step 9

Serve with toast or crusty bread to mop up the sauce and salsa.
