Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Brush the olive oil over the inside surface of a circular baking dish.
Press the tortilla down into the baking dish so that the edges fold up the sides of the dish. It may help to microwave the tortilla for a few seconds first to make it more pliable.
Sprinkle 1/2 of the shredded cheddar into the bottom of the tortilla. Dice the bell pepper and add it on top of the cheese along with the diced green chiles.
Crack four eggs into the dish on top of the vegetables and cheese. Season with a pinch fo salt and pepper.
Top with the remaining shredded cheese.
Bake the eggs for about 20 minutes, or until the whites are set and the yolks are still a bit liquid. You can shake the dish a bit to easily see how much the eggs are set.
After baking, spoon a couple tablespoons of salsa over the tortilla baked eggs and sprinkle the sliced green onion over top.
Loosen the tortilla by sliding a knife around the edge between the tortilla and dish, then slide the tortilla baked eggs out of the dish and use a large knife to cut it into quarters. Serve hot and enjoy!
