Nothing opens our eyes in the morning like breakfast tacos, especially ones that hold something bold and spicy. Here, we combine sautéed poblano chile strips with ham under a fried egg, served in a warm corn tortilla. Up and at ’em!

  1. 1Set a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat and add a little oil.
  2. 2Add the poblano strips and sauté until they soften, about 10 minutes.
  3. 3Add the ham and sauté with the chiles for 5 minutes; set aside.
  4. 4Grab a small nonstick skillet, add a bit more oil to the center, and break in 1 egg. Season with a little salt and fry until the white is set. Repeat with the remaining 5 eggs.
  5. 5Meanwhile, heat your tortillas (we do it directly over a gas flame till they’re puffed and a little blistered), and then evenly distribute the green chile–ham mixture among the tortillas.
  6. 6Top each taco with a fried egg and eat while hot!
