Quick Chilaquiles

So there I was, a Saturday morning that both the lad and I slept late.  Looking for something a bit different and easy to wake my foggy brain along with the fine brew in the coffeemaker.  Hmmm... chilly outside, need to get us going and through the morning as we head to the beach with the dog to take in a lovely sunny January day here in the PNW.  You know we need to take advantage of these days when we get 'em but we men need our sustenance.  Something quick, something hearty and to be constructed of the foodstuffs we have in the pantry and fridge.

Shuffle through the pantry, check in the fridge... Tortilla chips, eggs, a jar of salsa and grated mozzarella from pizza night the evening before.  And it dawns on me, I could make chilaquiles!  Now not the traditional recipe using stale leftover tortillas or cotija cheese but a pretty good semblance of the real deal and close enough to get us out the door to love this day!

So here it is, hearty, inexpensive and mighty darn tasty. 

Quick Chilaquiles
  • 3/4 C Salsa
  • 1/4 C Water
  • 3oz Tortilla chips
  • 2oz Cheese, grated - as I wrote above wew used mozzarella but cotija or jack would be more authentic
  • 4 eggs
  1. Heat the salsa and water over medium heat
  2. Add the chips and toss gently in the sauce - don't want to break them up
  3. Continue cooking until the chips soften but are not soggy
  4. Sprinkle the cheese over the chips and sauce, cover and remove from the heat
  5. Cook the eggs to your liking - Henry really only likes scrambled so scrambled it is
Serve with more salsa on the side for the eggs and a hearty, savory breakfast ensues.  Enjoy!
