This is the first time I’ve made chilaquiles at home and I’m kinda kicking myself for not doing it sooner. My college roommate, Riley introduced me to them and I’ve been ordering them FOR YEARS whenever we go out to breakfast but it never really dawned on me to look up how they were made and make them for myself. Ummm. It’s so easy. Like…ridiculously easy.

If you ever have some leftover corn tortillas, this is a quick and easy way to use them up. Also good if you have some extra enchilada sauce hanging about.

This is JUST THE BEGINNING. I hope to make chilaquiles with mushrooms and roasted zucchini next and maybe with a pumpkin situation in the fall. Let the games begin!

Oh look I fried two eggs in the meantime! The tortillas soak up a lot of the enchilada sauce.

Chilaquiles

recipe adapted from Real Simple

serves 2-3

  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 6  6-inch corn tortillas, cut into wedges
  • cup red enchilada sauce
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta
  • 1/4 small white onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1/2 avocado, chopped for serving

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and fry the tortillas until crisp, 3 to 4 minutes; drain and transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.

Wipe the skillet clean and warm the enchilada sauce and ¼ cup water over medium heat.

Add the crisped tortillas to the skillet and cook until most of the sauce is absorbed, 5 to 6 minutes.

In another small pan, fry two eggs in a glug of oil until whites have been set.

Top chilaquiles with fried eggs, feta, onion, cilantro and hot sauce if you please.

    We make these at home quite regularly after a recipe that my Mexican mother in law gave us. Rather than using enchilada sauce, we boil 3 quartered tomatoes, a few peeled garlic cloves and a hot pepper in a bit of salted water until they are starting to fall apart a bit. Then blend and yum! Oh and also: good for using up stale tortilla chips, saves you cutting up the tortillas.

      Sounds great! I’ll definitely do that when I have more time :)

        I usually keep some kind of red or green homemade salsa in hand, that saves tons of time. In Mexico we do not have enchilada sauce, so it´s usually only tomato or tomatillo sauce, queso fresco and sometime we add whole black beans. It is usually a staple of breakfast during the weekend.

    I never would have guessed they are so simple! Yours look amazing!

    Yum! My mom is Mexican and one of the best cooks I know. Sadly, I didn’t get her kitchen smarts but I’m a work in progress haha! I recently, had her cook chilaquiles for me and watched (because they are one of my favorite brunch items) and I can honestly say that this recipe is the closest I’ve seen to her recipe! Can’t wait to try it for myself.

    I have been waiting for this. I haven’t found a recipe with eggs+simple steps until now! Have you tried with tortilla chips? A lot of the recipes I’ve seen use them . . .
