   *      The Corn Tortillas should be 6 to 7-inches in diameter. ** See
   Sowest 2 for the recipe. *** Use either Monterey Jack or Chihuahua cheese
   in this recipe. Heat the oven to 400 degrees F. Heat 1/8-inch of vegetable
   oil in an 8-inch skillet over medium heat, just until hot. Cook the
   tortillas, one at a time, in the oil until crisp, about 1 minute. Drain on
   paper towels and then cut them into small pieces. (NOTE: You could use
   tortilla chips where they are available.) Cook and stir the bacon, onion,
   and garlic in the margarine and 1 tbls of vegetable oil, in a 10-inch
   skillet until the onion is tender. Stir in the tomatoes, salt, pepper, and
   nutmeg.  Simmer uncovered for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the
   spinach, cover and cook until the spinach is wilted, about 3 minutes. Line
   the bottom of an ungreased square 8 X 8 X 2-inch pan with the tortilla
   chips or pieces. Spread the spinach mixture over them. Cut the eggs
   lengthwise into halves and arrange them on the spinach mixture. Pour the
   Basic Green Sauce over the eggs; sprinkle with the cheese and bake,
   uncovered until the cheese is melted, abut 15 minutes.
