Chipotle Chilaquilles

Chipotle Chilaquilles

Chilaquilles is a popular Mexican breakfast or brunch dish that is widely enjoyed in Texas and California. It is a great way to use up some day old corn tortilla chips because the chips are simmered in a spicy sauce, in this case Larry's Chipotle Sauce, and then topped with a fried egg and cheese. I always order chilaquilles when I am in Austin. One of my favorites.

One  16 oz. jar Larry's Chipotle Sauce
8 oz. corn tortillas chips
1 tsp. vegetable oil
4 - 8 fresh eggs
1 cup grated queso fresco or Monterrey Jack
1 cup mixed chipped avocado, jalapeno and red bell pepper

* Pour Larry's Chipotle Sauce into a two to three quart saucepan and heat over medium until the sauce is just lightly bubbling.
* Add the corn tortilla chips, lower the heat to medium low, cover and simmer for five minutes or until the chips are just beginning to soften but still have some crunch.
* Fry one or two eggs per person to sunny side up or over easy. Poached is good, too.
* Spoon equal portions of the chips/sauce mixture onto individual plates, top with the fried eggs, Sprinkle the cheese on top of that and adorn with the garnish.
Serves 4
