It’s hard to imagine that a dish this ridiculously easy to make could be so good but it really is a winner. A purist would make their own salsa and fry up fresh corn tortillas wedges but when you’re in a hurry, which most of us are, this quickie version hits the spot.

Ingredients

  • 1 16-ounce jar tomatillo salsa
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3/4 cup coarsely chopped cilantro, divided
  • 1 quart coarsely broken good-quality plain corn tortilla chops, not baked or low-fat
  • 4 fried eggs
  • 1/4 cup sour cream thinned with 1 tablespoon water or milk
  • 1/4 cup chopped white onion
  • 1/4 cup crumbled cotija or feta cheese

Directions

  • Combine salsa and water in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Stir in ½ cup cilantro.
  • Add chips, stirring to coat with sauce, and cook, stirring gently, until softened but not mushy, about 1 minute. Spread chilaquiles on a platter and top with fried eggs.
  • Drizzle dish with thinned sour cream and sprinkle with white onion, cheese, and remaining ¼ cup cilantro.
