Baked chilaquiles with chorizo and eggs recipe

Serves 4


  • 5 corn tortillas
  • Olive oil, plus extra for cooking
  • Pinch of salt
  • 4 ounces chorizo
  • 1/4 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup enchilada sauce, homemade or store-bought (see below for recipe)
  • 1/2 cup low-fat mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 4 eggs
  • Chopped cilantro, for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Cut tortillas in half and then slice into 1/2-inch strips. Coat lightly in olive oil and season with salt. Spread strips evenly on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes until crispy and brown, tossing halfway through. Remove from oven and set aside.
  3. In a cast iron or large nonstick skillet, heat a drizzle of olive oil over medium-high heat. Cook chorizo and onion until chorizo is cooked through.
  4. Toss 1/2 cup of enchilada sauce and crispy tortillas into the skillet with the cooked chorizo. Spread the mixture evenly in the skillet, top with cheese, and then make four pockets for the eggs to sit in.
  5. Crack eggs into pockets and put the skillet in the oven. Cook until egg whites are cooked through but yolks are still runny, about 10-15 minutes. Garnish with cilantro, if desired, and serve immediately.
