Makes 2 servings or 4 pieces
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
2 Whole Wheat English Muffins
1 large Tomato (heirloom preferred)
1 large Avocado
1 tsp mined chipotle peppers in Adobo Sauce
1 tablespoon Lime Juice
1/3 cup water
1 tablespoon Fresh Cilantro
Finely dice chipotle pepper and mash avocado.
Put chipotle and avocado in a microwave safe bowl and mix with lime juice, salt, and water.
Use a hand blender to make smooth if you are unable to do so by mashing with a fork or whisk.
Heat on high in microwave for about 1 minute until warm, alternately place in a metal bowl and warm over a pot of boiling water, whisking occasionally.
Slice tomato and mince cilantro.
Toast english muffins in toaster while poaching eggs.
How to Poach an Egg:
Fill a medium size pot with about 3 inches of water. Bring the water to a boil and then reduce heat until it reaches a simmer. You should see small bubbles coming to the surface but not rolling.
Add a little splash of vinegar to the water (this is optional, but it helps the egg white to stay together once it is in the water).
Crack one egg into a small cup like a coffee mug or measuring cup. Lower the egg into the simmer water, gently easing it out of the cup.
Cook the egg in simmering water for 3-5 minutes, depending on how soft you want your egg yolk. Remove the poached egg with a slotted spoon. (It is not abnormal for a white foam to form on top of the water when poaching an egg. You can simple skim the foam off of the water with a spoon.
Top each toasted side with a slice of tomato, a poached egg, the with avocado hollandaise and garnish with chopped cilantro.
