- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 medium onion, diced
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 28 ounce can diced tomatoes
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- optional: pinch of dried chili flakes
- 5 large eggs
- 1–2 tbsp freshly chopped parsley

- Heat up oil in a 10 inch cast-iron (ideal) or large skillet over med-high heat.
- Sauté onions for 3-5 mins or until translucent.
- Add in garlic and cook for 1 minute.
- Add diced tomatoes and spices and bring to a boil then let simmer for about 5 mins or until broth has thickened.
- Create 5 small “wells” for the eggs and crack eggs directly into wells. There should be 4 around the edges and 1 in the middle.
