English Meadow’s Chilaquiles

Egg breakfast Chilaquiles

  • To make Chilaquiles: First make Salsa Verde, throw a couple jalapenos and tomatillos under the broiler until charred, meanwhile chop and then  saute a bunch of green onions and a clove of garlic. Then, blend in a food processor with salt, fresh cilantro and lime juice.


  • Crisp up tortillas (we used Pachanga Tortillas made locally)  for a couple minutes in oil that can take high heat (we used grapeseed oil). Work in batches.  Hit them with some kosher salt as they drain on paper towel.



  • Add the salsa, plus one cup of chicken stock to a pan that is big enough to hold the tortillas, saute until thickened a bit. Then add the tortillas to the sauce and toss to coat the chips.  I like to leave some more crisp then others, to keep the texture interesting. Set aside.


  • Next fry up some eggs in oil, we like them crispy on the edge, but poached or scrambled would be great too.


  • Place tortilla and sauce mixture on warmed plates, add your egg, top it off with Mexican crema, cotija cheese, fresh cilantro, avocado, and our secret ingredient, Tajin!


  • This is a very freeform recipe, you can’t really mess it up. Be creative and enjoy!
