Currently usurping my love for huevos rancheros. Yummy, yummy, yummy.
Serves 2 hungry hippos
2 cups salsa (homemade or from a jar)
4 corn tortillas
cotija cheese, queso fresco, or other grated cheese
Serve with refried beans, black beans, eggs, avocado, etc
- For homemade salsa, blitz tomatoes, fresh or dried chiles, water, salt and pepper in a blender. Use spicy chiles or chipotle for some heat or smokiness. Set aside.
- Cut the corn tortillas into bite size pieces and fry on med-high heat in olive oil till brown and crispy.
- Add in the jar of salsa or homemade salsa–enough to simmer the tortillas in but not cover them. Stir and add in salt and pepper if needed.
- When cooked, add handful of cheese and mix in. The chilaquiles should have a wonderful texture with some of the tortilla pieces being chewy and soft and some still a little crunchy.
Great with fried eggs and refried beans!
