Chilaquiles are a traditional Mexican egg dish with fried corn tortillas and salsa. For a great brunch add onions, crema, and a squeeze of lime and wash it down with a michelada.


  • 20 tortilla chips, broken ones OK, any brand, any color
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (divided)
  • 1 cup salsa, green or red (I used tomatillo salsa)
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream or Mexican crema
  • 1 tablespoon chives or cilantro
  • Additional option garnishes – avocado slices, shredded cheddar cheese, thinly sliced radishes, Sriracha, pickled jalapenos, etc.


  1. In a skillet, heat one tablespoon oil and fry tortillas until golden, about five minutes. Add salsa, turn heat down and fry gently for five minutes.
  2. Distribute between two plates.
  3. Meanwhile, heat remaining oil in a non-stick skillet and fry eggs until desired yolk done-ness is reached.
  4. Top chips with eggs, drizzle with sour cream and sprinkle with herbs. Serve immediately.
