Bacon Chilaquiles with Eggs

In Mexico and throughout the Southwest, chilaquiles with eggs are typically made for brunch using tortillas and any leftovers from the previous day's dinner. I love to bring this to family brunches as it gives the traditional eggs-and-bacon dish a unique twist. The empty pan proves that it's a family brunch favorite! —Naylet LaRochelle, Miami, Florida

    This dish was delicious! I made it for our Sunday breakfast. I used the Cotija cheese and sliced avocado. My husband and mom loved it. It was filling and satisfying.

    This is comforting and delicious. It was so easy to cook up the chips in the oven while the eggs cooked on the stovetop.

    This was FANTASTIC, had it for dinner. It was truly a "clean out the pantry meal". Had everything on hand and used blue tortilla chips and fresh spinach instead. I think next time will try this with Chorizo. I think the possibilities are endless as what to add. And that sunny side egg? That was different and delicious. VFE
