I want to be in Mexico (who doesn’t?)…
It is a balmy 27 degrees here in Michigan and I’m ready to see some sunshine, but since I’m stuck here I decided the next best thing was cooking up some Chilaquiles.
If you have never had Chilaquiles they are amazing. It’s like Mexican comfort food, plus you get to have chips for breakfast! I first had these on our Honeymoon in Mexico, oddly enough they came as a side with my french toast, weird combo but delicious.
You need some corn tortillas, eggs, queso fresco, and this delicious red enchilada sauce.
Ok, so I cheated!
I said it, I cheated, I didn’t make my own sauce.
I have 2 kids and a puppy who pees everywhere and I had a can of enchilada sauce in the pantry. I just couldn’t face re-hydrating peppers and boiling tomatoes and chopping onions. Opening a can just seemed like a much better idea.
So here is what the picture should really look like…
And you know what? It was delicious and easy and so not authentic, so I apologize. But if you want some easy delicious Mexican food read on.
First cut up your corn tortillas.
I used about 6 (for just the Mr. and I, the kids had quesadillas)
Fry them til crispy (I didn’t mention this recipe was healthy did I? I said comfort food I believe!) just heat vegetable oil in a pot over medium high heat and fry them a handful at a time draining on a paper towel afterward.
Open your can of sauce and toss it in a pan to heat it up, add your chips.
Fry a couple of eggs.
Slide your chips and sauce onto a plate, top with the eggs, and crumble queso fresco on top.
and don’t tell anyone I cheated… :)
