4.      Sprinkle over the feta and roughly crush over the handful of salted tortilla chips and bake in the oven for around 10 minutes until the egg whites are set.

5.      Serve sprinkled with chopped parsley, freshly ground black pepper and plenty of Salted tortilla chips for dipping and scooping.
