  • Vegetable oil for deep-frying
  • 5 (8-inch) corn tortillas, cut in half
  • 15 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup half-and-half
  • 3 tablespoons TABASCO® brand Green Jalapeño Pepper Sauce

  • 1 cup diced smoked ham

Heat vegetable oil to 375°F in a deep fryer or skillet; add tortillas a few at a time and fry until golden brown. Drain on paper towels and keep warm.

Combine eggs, half-and-half, and TABASCO® Green Sauce in a large bowl and beat until combined.
