Instructions - 
Start by either getting your left over roasted or boiled potatoes out or by boiling up some fresh until soft.  Combine your garlic, onion, chilli, oil in your skillet and cook on a medium heat for a few minutes, then add to the potatoes, corinader and cheese,  mix thoroughly- the more lumps and chunks of potato the better. Add the spinach to the pan and cook for 2 minutes until wilted, add this to the potatoes also. (Left over cabbage or greens work just as well). Take your skillet or casserole dish and heat up on the hob, add a glug of oil and butter then add in the potato mixture and cook on high for 5 minutes, don't be tempted to move the potatoes around, leave it and let it go crispy. Add the cheese to the top of the potatoes and move to the oven or under the grill to go crispy on the top also. 

While the potatoes cooking under the grill/ in the oven combine all the Spicy Paprika Tomato ingredients and let cook on a medium to high heat until you're ready to serve. 

Combine all the Hot Guac ingredients in one dish, adjust seasoning accordingly, more chilli flakes, sauce, fresh chilli, lime or just salt & pepper. 

Once the the cheese had gone crispy on top of the potato make as many wholes as you need for the eggs, allowing one egg per portion or two if you're especially hungry. Crack the eggs into the wholes and place back in the oven to cook for a further 2/3 minutes.

Once cooked add extra coriander, chilli, lambs lettuce and sour cream plus the spicy paprika tomatoes all on top of the potatoes, place in the middle of the table for everyone to help themselves. Make sure you don't miss the crispy best bits round the edges.
