Nellie's Free Range Eggs


Chilaquiles with Fried Eggs

Chilaquiles are already as warm and inviting as they come, but with a couple fried eggs on top, they’re truly comfort food at its finest! Make these for your next movie night or midnight snack and they’ll be on your mind for days. Our thanks to Dad With A Pan for this take on a traditional Mexican dish.


16 ounces canned red chile sauce

10 ounces canned diced tomatoes and green chiles

2 cups tortilla chips

2-4 Nellie’s Free Range Eggs

2 tablespoons butter (or canola oil)

1/4 cup queso fresco, crumbled

1/4 cup Monterey jack cheese, shredded (optional)

1 jalapeño, sliced

1/4 cup cilantro, chopped


  1. In a large pan, combine red chile sauce and canned diced tomatoes and green chiles. Bring to a simmer.
  2. Toss tortilla chips into the simmered red chile sauce mixture until evenly incorporated. Optional: top with Monterey jack cheese and let melt.
  3. In a separate pan, heat butter or oil on medium until shimmering. Crack in 1 egg at a time and fry until egg whites are fully opaque, about 2 minutes per egg.
  4. Place a large handful of chips onto each plate. Garnish with queso fresco, jalapeño, and cilantro. Top with an egg or two per plate. Enjoy!
