Still looking for something special for Father’s Day breakfast? How about chilaquiles (chee-la-KEE-lace), a traditional Mexican breakfast or brunch dish.

While there are numerous regional variations, here’s a typical recipe: Corn tortillas are cut into quarters and lightly fried. Next comes green or red salsa or mole sauce, then fried eggs.

Pulled chicken can be added; the dish is topped with shredded queso fresco and/or crema, Mexican sour cream. Sliced raw onion, avocado or other garnish can be added. A side of refried beans typically completes the dish.

Don’t confuse chilaquiles with the Tex-Mex dish migas, scrambled eggs mixed with chopped green onions, shredded Cheddar and crushed tortilla chips or tortilla strips.

This recipe is courtesy Avocados From Mexico, which has many delicious avocado recipes on its website.

 

RECIPE: CHILAQUILES WITH AVOCADO AND EGGS

Ingredients For 4 Servings

 

  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 8 six-inch corn tortillas, quartered
  • 1-1/2 cups red salsa
  • 4 eggs

    Preparation

    1. HEAT oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add tortillas. Carefully stir and turn tortillas to coat them with oil until crisp, about 6-8 minutes. Remove from heat.

    2. FRY eggs in a separate skillet. As eggs are finishing…

    3. RETURN tortillas to medium heat. Pour salsa over crisp tortillas, turning to coat until they are slightly soft but still chewy. Top tortillas with fried eggs, avocado and radishes.

    TIP: If you want the tortillas to remain crisp, hold the salsa and pour it over the other ingredients immediately before serving.
