Huevos Rancheros Salad (Meatless Monday)

The recipe from Rachael Ray Magazine suggested cutting the corn tortillas in strips, then baking.  I love corn tortillas for the whole grain, low sodium and calorie composition, but sometimes find it hard to fix them.  This is a winner.  Here's how I put the salad together:
