Do you sometimes forget to chip-clip your bag of tortilla chips after snacking? Yes? Then you'll love our chilaquiles! Chilaquiles is a delicious Mexican dish that usually includes tortillas. We use stale tortilla chips instead--that way, you can say you left that bag open on purpose. A tip: If you're making this for dinner, use shredded chicken instead of eggs. Save a little extra tomato for more color in the garnish.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place tomatoes and jalapeños in a blender. Add broth, salt, and garlic. Cover and process on high speed for 1 minute or until smooth; set aside.

Step 2

Heat a 12-inch sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add oil; swirl to coat. Add onion; sauté 2 minutes or until just tender, stirring occasionally. Add tomato mixture to pan. Bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low, and continue to simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Step 3

Add chips to pan, and stir to coat with tomato mixture. Crack eggs, 1 at a time, over chips, evenly spacing them in a circle inside pan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and cook for 5 to 7 minutes or until eggs are set but still runny in the centers. Remove pan from heat. Arrange avocado slices over eggs. Top with dollops of sour cream and a sprinkle of cilantro. Serve immediately.

Really delicious. I kept the seeds in the jalepenos because I wanted it to be a bit spicier.

Excellent! We cut the amount of jalapeno only because of personal preference and added a bit of Mexican cheese at the end of egg cooking time.

Chips got too mushy. Family like it and said it was "good". I think there are better Chilaquiles recipes and won't make this one again.
