Total Time


8 cup tortilla chips1 cup crema or commercial sour cream2 cup grated Mexican cheese, like queso Chiuahua or queso Oaxaca, or monterey jack or cheddar8 large egg½ cup diced tomato½ cup diced avocado, preferably hass variety¼ cup minced red onion¼ cup chopped cilantro¼ cup grated Cotija cheese


Prepare the Roasted Tomato-Chipotle Salsa and keep warm. Preheat the oven to 350˚F.


In a very large skillet, combine 2 to 3 handfuls of chips and 3/4 cup of the salsa and toss gently until the chips are covered. Add ½ cup of sour cream and 1/2 cup of grated cheese and gently stir again. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake until the mixture is lightly browned and crispy on the edges and soft in the center, about 20 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven, add more sauce, if necessary, and more cheese on top.

Meanwhile, cook the eggs sunny-side up, or as you want.


To serve: spoon the chilaquiles onto a plate and top with two eggs; garnish with tomato, avocado, red onions, cilantro, and Cotija cheese. Serve hot with extra salsa on the side. Repeat for each batch.
