  1. In a small nonstick skillet, warm the Canadian bacon over medium heat until just warmed through. Transfer the bacon to a plate and cover to keep warm.

  2. In the same skillet, warm each tortilla over medium heat for about 30 seconds per side. Cover to keep warm.

  3. Coat a nonstick skillet with cooking oil spray. Add the egg whites or whole eggs and cook without stirring, for 2 minutes, or until nearly set. Turn the eggs with a silicone spatula and finish cooking, about 1 minute longer.

  4. To serve, place a warm tortilla on a plate and top with 1 slice of Canadian bacon. Place 2 egg whites or a single egg on top of the bacon. Top the egg(s) with 1/4 cup hot sofrito sauce and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of cheese. Garnish with the cilantro.
