  1. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Fry the sliced onion and peppers for 10 mins until softened and lightly golden. Add the garlic and coriander stalks and fry for 1 min. Add the chipotle paste and tip in the tinned tomatoes along with a ½ a tin of water. Bring to a simmer, pop the lid on and cook for 10mins. 
  2. Meanwhile, combine half of the sweetcorn, avocado, finely chopped red onion, coriander leaves and lime juice in a bowl; season to taste. 
  3. Remove the lid, add the remaining sweetcorn, then season to taste. Cook for 5 mins until the sauce has thickened and reduced. Reserving a handful to serve, stir the tortilla chips into the sauce. Fold the spinach through and cook for 1-2 mins until wilted. 
  4. Make 4 wells in the sauce with the back of a spoon, crack in the eggs, pop the lid on and cook for 5-6 mins until the whites are cooked with a runny yolk or to your liking. 
  5. Crumble the feta over the eggs and sprinkle with the sweetcorn salsa. Serve with lime wedges and extra tortilla chips.
