2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Make the chilaquiles

  • Peel and coarsely chop the entire onion; then finely chop enough to measure ¼ cup [½ cup] and set aside for garnish.

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the coarsely chopped onion and garlic-herb blend, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion starts to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the tomatillo simmer sauce and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Add the tortilla chips and cook, stirring occasionally, until the chips start to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. While the chilaquiles are cooking, prepare the remaining garnishes.


Prep the remaining garnishes

  • Crumble the queso fresco if needed.
  • Cut the lime into wedges.
  • Coarsely chop the cilantro.


Fry the eggs

In a medium frying pan over medium heat, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons butter or oil (from your pantry) until hot but not smoking. Crack the eggs directly into the pan and season with salt and pepper. Cook until the whites have set and the yolks are slightly runny, 2 to 3 minutes. If you prefer firmer yolks, cook for 1 to 2 minutes longer. 


Transfer the chilaquiles to individual bowls and top with the eggs. Garnish with the finely chopped onion, queso fresco, and cilantro and serve with the lime wedges.
