  2. Adjust oven rack to middle position; preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  3. Mince one jalapeño and set aside.
  4. In medium bowl, combine tomatoes, remaining jalapeños, onion, garlic, tomato paste, 1 teaspoon salt, 2 tablespoons oil, cumin, and cayenne pepper; toss to mix thoroughly.
  5. Place vegetables cut side down on baking sheet.
  6. Roast 35 to 45 minutes; cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes.
  7. Increase oven heat to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.

  11. Add 2 tablespoons cilantro, reserved minced jalapeño, salt, pepper, and lime juice to taste.
  12. FOR THE TORTILLAS: Brush both sides of each tortilla lightly with remaining tablespoon oil, sprinkle both sides with salt, and place on clean baking sheet. Bake until tops just begin to color, 5 to 7 minutes; flip tortillas and continue to bake until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes more.
  14. Meanwhile, bring salsa to gentle simmer in 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat.
  15. Remove from heat and make four shallow wells in salsa with back of large spoon.

  20. TO SERVE:
  21. Place tortillas on serving plates; gently scoop one egg onto each tortilla. Spoon salsa around each egg, covering tortillas, but leaving portion of eggs exposed.
  22. Sprinkle with remaining cilantro and serve with lime wedges.
