Called Anaheims when fresh and green, dried New Mexican chiles taste earthy with a subtle cherry flavor. They’re delicious blended with dried oregano and ground coriander in our savory salsa that tops fried eggs. Strawberries, black chia seeds, and granola all add up to a creamy, crunchy, nutrient-packed meal in a glass to jump-start your day.


  • 3 or 4 sprigs fresh cilantro
  • 4 pasture-raised organic eggs
  • New Mexican chile salsa (New Mexican chiles - olive oil - fresh garlic - dried oregano - coriander - salt)
  • 1 ounce queso fresco

  • ½ pound fresh strawberries
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon black chia seeds
  • ¼ cup coconut-almond granola (contains wheat flakes and almonds)



Prep the cilantro and cook the eggs

  • Coarsely chop the cilantro for garnish.
In a small frying pan over medium heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons butter or oil 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 eggs to individual plates. Dollop with half the New Mexican chile salsa, crumble the queso fresco over the top, and garnish with the cilantro. Serve the remaining salsa on the side.


Prep the strawberries

  • Remove the green hulls from the strawberries; coarsely chop the berries.


Blend the ingredients

In a blender, combine the almond milk, maple syrup, strawberries, chia seeds, and 1 cup ice. Season lightly with salt and blend until smooth.



Pour into glasses, top with the granola, and serve.
