Chop the garlic as small as you can get it and add it with about a 1\2 teaspoon of salt 1 teaspoon of pepper 1 teaspoon chili powder 1 teaspoon cumin. Stir everything together and cook another 30 seconds or so.
(I also add a bit of sirachi dauce to spice it up its optional though)
Dice two medium to large tomatoes or add a half can of tomatoes and cook until the sauce becomes thick enough to make a hole in.
Make 4 to 6 holes in the sauce and crackin your eggs into them.
Cover the pan with a lid and cook until the top of the eggs has turned white.

Garnish with fresh chopped cilantro and serve woth pita bread or toast
