Begin by boiling a pot of water on your stove. Then add chopped potatoes to the water and cook for six minutes. Next, heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Once the oil is sizzling, add the cooked potatoes, followed by thinly-sliced red peppers, salt, and pepper. Cook all the ingredients for five minutes. Then add a bunch of sliced scallions and mix until everything is totally incorporated.
After all the ingredients are added, use your wooden spoon to push the mixture and make four wells. Then crack an egg into each well. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover with a lid and cook until the whites are set—this should take about six minutes. Remove your skillet from the heat and garnish with chopped avocados, lime juice, and chopped cilantro.
