Paul's Stacked Enchiladas

A few years back, or should that be once upon a time? A friend named Peggy introduced me to this dish.  She would make it for her husband Paul from time to time, or whenever he could badger her into making it. 
She called it Stacked Enchiladas.      At any rate...

Paul's Stacked Enchiladas
I got a hankering for this breakfast dish the other day.   For some reason I've been craving onions lately, raw, caramelized, cooked in a sauce, however I can get them.

I gave into the craving big time this morning. 

I may have onion breath for the next week, or so.  But it was worth it.  Just don't stand too close. 

Recipe:  Paul's Stacked Enchiladas with Egg  -  Per person

2-3 fresh Corn Tortillas 
1 cup shredded cheese (I love my Cojack or mixture of Cheddar and Monterey Jack)
1/2 cup chopped onions (sweet onions work great here) ( you can precook the onions for about 30 seconds on high if you don't like the onions to be a little sharp and crunchy.)
1/2-1 cup Green Enchilada Sauce, heated. 
1 egg  (or 2)

Chop the onions into a small dice.  Set aside.   Place a corn tortilla on a plate, then top with some of the chopped onion,
a handful of shredded cheese,
top with the next corn tortilla,
add some more onions, more cheese.
  Zap in the microwave until the cheese is melted, and nice and gooey.  
While it's melting away, prepare your egg.   I like mine over easy, but you can make yours however you want. 
Pour the enchilada sauce over the cheese and tortillas,
reserving 1/4 cup or so,  zap for another 30 seconds on medium high. 
Then top the stack with the freshly cooked egg,
sprinkle a little cheese on top and the reserved enchilada sauce.

 Serve and enjoy.  Personally I love it when the egg yolk streams out of the egg, mingles with the enchilada sauce and the corn tortillas  and becomes something magical on the tongue.
