1. In a small bowl, toss together the cherry tomatoes, lime juice, olive oil, avocado, garlic, salt and pepper to coat, then set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, beat the eggs until smooth, then whisk in the cheese, cream and green chile; season with salt and pepper, then set aside.

3. In a 10-inch nonstick skillet, cook the bacon over medium heat, flipping once, until golden and rendered, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer the bacon to a cutting board. Once cool enough to handle, roughly chop then transfer to a bowl.

4. To the pan of rendered bacon fat, add the chorizo. Cook, stirring often to break up the meat, until the chorizo is golden and rendered, 3 to 4 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to the bowl with the bacon.

5. Add the tortilla strips to the pan and cook until lightly golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium low, then add the eggs with the reserved bacon and chorizo. Cook, stirring constantly, until the eggs are fully scrambled, 3 to 4 minutes.

6. On a cutting board, lay out the warm flour tortillas. Divide the scrambled eggs between the tortillas, then spoon the tomato mixture over top. Garnish with cilantro, then serve.
