“This is my great-grandmother's recipe, so it's like a million years old. These are the original and authentic Southern Mexico style chilaquiles. This version is very popular as a Sunday breakfast. Believed to cure bad hang-overs.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil tomatoes and chiles until soft.
  2. Mix them in blender with the garlic and water.
  3. Heat 1 tbsp of oil and fry this paste, lower the heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt.
  4. Cut the tortillas in strips with a pair of kitchen scissors.
  5. Heat 4 tbsp of oil and fry the tortilla strips until crispy.
  6. Drain oil and add the three eggs to pan. Stir strips and eggs quickly so they don't stick to the pan. Add salt to taste.
