I loooove chilaquiles – what I love even more is making a homemade rojo sauce to mix with it. To make the sauce, all you need to do is roast tomatoes, onions, jalapeno, garlic cloves, olive oil, adobo sauce and salt & pepper till charred and roasted – then blend, mix with tortilla chips and top with your favorite accompaniments! (PS: I suggest making this with leftover turkey for thankgiving leftovers this week.. thank me later).
- Happy Eggs Heritage Breed
- Cilantro red onions, avocado, queso fresco 2 oz tortilla chips
- For the Rojo Sauce
- 5-6 roma tomatoes 1 white onion
- 1 jalapeno
- 5 garlic cloves
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 3 chipotle in adobo sauce salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and on a sheet tray roast your tomatoes, onion, jalapeño, garlic cloves, olive oil, adobo sauce, salt and pepper to taste. Roast for 30-45 minutes. After, add in a blender until smooth.
- In a skillet, heat up your sauce and add in your tortilla chips. Toss to coat and don’t let them sit too long to get soggy in the heat. Transfer to a plate and fry your eggs in the same skillet. Top your chilaquiles with your fried eggs, cilantro, red onions, avocado and queso fresco, serve immediately!
We used Happy Eggs heritage breed eggs for this recipe (take a closer look at that amazing yolk color!). The egg shells are blue and brown and are so different in both look and taste. The breeds come from two different types of hens – the Copper Maran and the Speckled Legbar. The eggs have amber yolks, creamier tasting because they have over eight acres of pasture to roam. The hens’ feed on a vegetarian, all-natural, hormone free, specially formulated diet of corn, which also gives way to the better-tasting creamier eggs. I am literally obsessed with these heritage breed and they are currently always in my fridge. The way the hens are raised make such a difference in both taste and look that once you try it, you just can’t go back.
