Gently break up the ground meat and allow to cook until thoroughly cooked through. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add tomato sauce, cumin, oregano, and chili powder and cook for 20 minutes. Add a little water if the mixture looks too dry. Taste for seasoning. Set aside.
Meanwhile, in a medium skillet over medium high heat, add some olive oil and the peppers and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook until they are tender, about 5 minutes. Remove and set aside to cool.
In a large bowl, crack the eggs and whisk briskly with 1 ½ teaspoons salt and pepper. In a large skillet over medium high heat, add olive oil and add eggs. Turn heat down to medium and with a high heat rubber spatula, gently scrape the bottom of the skillet, gently turning the eggs over until they are most of the way cooked through, about 3 minutes. Remove and set aside to cool.
Over a gas flame or a dry non stick skillet over medium high heat, place a tortilla and wait for it to get slightly puffy. Turn over and cook for another 30 seconds and remove to a baking sheet. Continue with the remaining tortillas stacking them on top of one another.

Continue with remaining tortillas.
