Country-Style Tomato Baked Eggs

  This dish is perfect for Fridays, end of the week, when I’m too tired to even lift a finger.

It is quick to prepare and easy to make.

Elmer and Tatay get second serves whenever I serve this. That is a good sign that they like it. Really.

The marriage of the Spanish chorizo and cherry tomatoes is just exotic. The beans make it extra filling while the coriander adds a bit of twist. The eggs tie in the dish together.

1. I used canned Mutti cherry tomatoes. I once used diced tomatoes, it turned out too runny.
2. You can use any kind of canned beans. I use whatever is on sale.
3. If you want to make it more exciting, add in 1-2 chopped fresh chilli.
