Ingredients Sauce:
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
One 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes
1 cup water
1 teaspoon sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons ground coriander
1-1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1-1/2 teaspoons chili powder
Salt and black pepper
1/2 cup canned, chopped mild green chili peppers
Frittata:
1 baking potato
1 Tablespoon olive oil
2 Tablespoons finely chopped scallions
Salt and pepper
6 eggs
6 Tablespoons milk
6 ounces Monterey Jack cheese

Sauce: In a medium saucepan, heat the olive oil and add the onion. Saute over medium heat until softened, but not browned. Add crushed tomatoes, water, sugar, coriander, cumin, chili powder, and chili peppers. Season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 20 to 30 minutes until the sauce is thickened. Remove from the heat and reserve. (The sauce can be made ahead of time, thinned with water if necessary.)

Peel the potato, then cut it in half vertically and thinly slice each half horizontally to form half-moon slices. Saute the potato in olive oil until cooked through and golden brown. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add scallions and stir to combine. Remove from heat.

For each frittata: Lightly coat a non-stick, 8-inch omelet pan with cooking oil spray. Add 1/2 of the potato-scallion mixture and cook over medium heat. In a small bowl, whisk together the 3 eggs with the 2 Tablespoons of milk and 3 Tablespoons of cheese. Pour the egg mixture into the omelet pan, distributing evenly over the potato mixture. Stir gently to combine the ingredients and allow the egg to cook for a minute or so to set the bottom. Then, using a rubber spatula, gently lift an edge of the eggs and tipping the pan, allow uncooked egg mixture to run underneath the eggs, building up the height of the frittata. Continue this gentle cooking process until the eggs are nearly cooked through, about 5 minutes. To finish the top of the frittata, slide the pan into the broiler for a minute or so. Repeat this procedure for the second frittata.

Slide the finished frittata out of the pan and onto a plate. Reheat the tomato and chili sauce and serve on the side.
