Mexican Chilaquiles are perfect when you want to enjoy a traditional Mexican breakfast that blends crispy corn tortillas, red sauce, and fried eggs.
As my knowledge of various types of culinary cuisines increases, I’m starting to realize that there is a lot that I don’t know. One example is the difference between traditional Mexican food and Tex-Mex.
While Tex-Mex is a blend of Mexican, American, and Spanish with popular dishes like beef fajitas and nachos (in addition to its yellow cheese and black beans), more “authentic” Mexican food uses corn tortillas, refried beans, white cheeses, fresh vegetables, seafood, and other non-beef proteins.
Today I bring to you my version of a Mexican breakfast favorite called Mexican Chilaquiles. This dish basically consists of crispy corn tortillas (sets the foundation for its amazing texture) along with a mixture of tomato (red) sauce and fried eggs.
I personally enjoy my red sauce on the thicker side, but if you prefer your sauce to be thinner (think salsa) you can add more chicken broth to thin it out. If you are an egg lover you will really enjoy how the yoke from the fried egg mixed with the red sauce brings this all together.
This is a very simple recipe but it is one that anyone can enjoy any time of the day. If you love Mexican food and want to enjoy a really good traditional Mexican breakfast give these Mexican Chilaquiles a try you will not be disappointed.Print
