  1. Heat a saucepan over medium-high heat for salsa. Add cooking oil and then garlic, shallots, and chipotle pepper (if using). Saute for ~1 minute and then fold in crushed tomatoes, chili powder, oregano, and aminos. Stir and simmer for ~10 minutes and stir in cilantro.
  2. While salsa cooks, fry eggs in a large non-stick skillet or pan (if using a griddle, set griddle to 325F / 163C). Heat pan over medium heat and then add cooking oil. Crack eggs into heated oil (you may have to work in batches) and cook until the whites are set. If you like your eggs less runny, cover the pan with a lid and cook until eggs are at the consistency you want. Repeat until all eggs are cooked.
  3. Slice avocados. Enjoy eggs with salsa and avocados, plus slaw on the side. Finish your breakfast for dinner with a refreshing smoothie!
