Using tongs, dip the tortillas, one at a time, in hot oil, 5 seconds on each side just until softened. Drain tortillas on paper towels. Line a 12x8x2-inch baking dish with tortillas, letting tortillas extend 1/2 inch up the side of the dish. Set baking dish aside.
Sauté onion and garlic until crisp-tender in the skillet used for the tortillas. Add tomatoes, chiles and salt. Simmer, uncovered, 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Pour mixture over tortillas. Make 6 indentations in tomato mixture, and break an egg into each. Cover and bake at 350°F for 25 minutes. Sprinkle with grated cheese and bake an additional 2 minutes. Serve immediately. Makes 3 to 4 servings.
