Chilaquiles is a traditional Mexican dish made from fried tortillas that simmer in a tomato sauce. We made them lighter by baking, not frying, the tortillas. It's a great, fun breakfast-for-dinner option on a busy weeknight! Queso fresco ("fresh cheese") is typically used to top chilaquiles. The cheese has a mild, milky fresh flavour. It can be difficult to find sometimes though so crumbled feta can be used in its place.

4 spray(s)

Corn tortilla

6 oz, (6 {1 oz} items), each cut into 8 wedges

Olive oil

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Place tortillas in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake until crisp, about 12 minutes.

Stir in diced tomatoes and green chilies, tomato sauce, 3/4 cup water, chipotles, and salt and bring to a simmer. Stir in baked tortillas. Cook, stirring, until tortillas are softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in cilantro. Remove chilaquiles from heat.
  3. Coat a large nonstick skillet with nonstick spray. In skillet, cook eggs sunny-side up.
  4. Divide chilaquiles among 4 shallow bowls or plates. Top each with a fried egg and 1/4 avocado. Sprinkle with cheese.
