A food we’ve mentioned before is chilaquiles, a great breakfast for those that are fans of fried tortillas drenched in salsa. In case you forgot about them, here’s a recipe we found.
- Either coriander or cilantro leaves for garnish
- Four tablespoons of vegetable oil
- Half of a sliced avocado (optional)
- Eight quartered corn tortillas
- Half of a diced, small onion
- A cup of either salsa verde or roja
- Pair of tablespoons of crumbled Cotija cheese
- Pair of eggs
- Four tablespoons of crema
- Freshly ground pepper and salt
Using a large frying pan, heat pair of tablespoons of the oil using medium-high heat. In batches, add the quartered tortillas and fry until the chips turn golden on each side, it should take a minute or so. Move the chips over to a paper towel so they can drain.
Using a saucepan over medium heat, add a tablespoon of the oil and then add the salsa, cooking enough so that it warms through. Follow by adding the chips and stir so that the salsa coats the chips.
While this is going on, use a small frying pan to heat the last tablespoon of oil. Crack the eggs in and season them with pepper and salt. Cook for a minute and then turn down the heat to low. Continue to cook for another two minutes or so until the white has set and the edges appear crispy and gold. During the final thirty seconds of cooking, baste the egg white with a spoon using the hot oil to so that the white finishes cooking. Move the fried eggs over to a plate with a spatula.
After serving, top the chilaquiles with the cheese, cilantro, crema, and avocado if you chose to use it.
