1.
To make salsa: Place tomatoes
in bowl and stir in chile, red onion, garlic, and cilantro. Add oil and lime
juice to taste. Set aside to marinate for about 30 minutes, then season lightly
with salt and pepper to taste.

2. Preheat oven 350°F (180°C).
Stack tortillas and wrap in foil. Place in oven to warm for 7 to 10 minutes.

3. To make eggs: Meanwhile,
half-fill large skillet with water. Heat until just starting to simmer, then
reduce heat so water does not boil. Add vinegar. Break eggs into water, one at
a time, and poach for 3 minutes. Toward the end of cooking, spoon water over
yolks. When cooked, remove eggs with slotted spoon and drain on paper
towel–lined plate.

4. Place warmed tortillas on 4
plates. Spoon over a little salsa, then put eggs on top and season with salt
and pepper to taste. Put cheese, sour cream, scallions, chopped cilantro, and
lime wedges into small bowls, and serve, along with the remaining salsa.
