Waffles and pancakes are delicious breakfast staples, eggs and sausage are family favorites, but let’s switch it up this morning in the kitchen and cook up a healthy version of Chilaquiles! Chilaquiles is a traditional Mexican dish. Green or red salsa is used; we’re going to use red in this recipe, feel free to use green if you prefer! If you’re new to cooking Mexican food or maybe you haven’t tried this specific dish yet…it’s easy and delicious! 7 Ingredients, 4 Steps, we got this! It will be perfect for this Mother’s Day for breakfast or after church for brunch!
2 cups Siete sea salt tortilla chips
1 cup red enchilada sauce( I like Trader Joe’s)
1 cup sliced avocado
1 cup almond cheese(I use Kite hill plain)
1 tbsp. Cilantro
Salt and pepper to taste
- In a sauce pan, heat up enchilada sauce and mix in 1/2 of the almond cheese to help make it creamier.
- In a heated non stick fry pan, cook 2 eggs at a time until over easy. Season with salt and pepper.
- Place 1 cup of chips on plate. Pour 1/2 of the red sauce (or green if you prefer!) over the chips. Crumble 1/2 of the almond cheese left on top of this.
- Place 2 eggs on top of the chips. Top with 1/2 cup sliced avocado and 1/2 tbsp. Cilantro. Repeat for second plate!
Okay now doesn’t that look delicious! You can make up a batch for yourself or enough for the whole family and it takes practically no time. You don’t have to go out to have a Mexican breakfast anymore!
