Method

  1. Heat oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Brush both sides of the tortillas with the oil, then cut into triangles like tortilla chips. Place in a single layer on lined baking trays and bake for 7-8 mins until golden and crisp. 
  2. Meanwhile place the eggs in a small saucepan and fill with water until covered by 1cm water. Bring to the boil and cook for 7 mins until hard boiled. Remove from the pan and run under cold water until cool enough to peel and thinly slice. 
  3. Arrange the tortilla chips on the plate and top with the cheeses, cucumber, tomatoes, carrot, ham and egg.
