One of my favorite Mexican dishes is Sausage Chilaquiles, which are fried “torn” tortillas smothered in red chile sauce or green chile if you prefer, often stacked with chorizo sausage, beans, sometimes chicken and finished off with a fried or scrambled egg.
For you vegetarians out there, just forget the meat and this will still turn out perfect!
Finally I added some Hatch chiles to kick it up a bit. Some sliced jalapenos could be added if you really want to make it extra spicy!
While the sausage cooked I started frying up some “happy” eggs! Add a pinch of seasoning to your eggs as they fry.
Here’s the finished product, you have crunchy, spicy, creamy,and savory all mixed up in one dish. It’s a big party in the mouth, each and every bite.
I thought you might like a close up! That crispy egg on top is begging to be eaten, and all that avocado is a plus also! I really have to start eating…enough with all this talking people…
I highly suggest you make this asap, because you’re missing out!
