Indulge in a fiesta of flavors with our mouthwatering Chilaquiles—a beloved Mexican dish perfect for breakfast or brunch. This vibrant and delicious dish features layers of crispy multigrain tortilla chips smothered in zesty salsa, melted cheese and a creamy sour cream drizzle.

First, start with the foundation of the Chilaquiles: crispy multigrain tortilla chips. These crunchy chips provide the perfect base for the dish, offering a satisfying texture that holds up well to the flavorful salsa and creamy toppings. The multigrain aspect adds a nutty depth of flavor and a nutritional boost.

Next, layer on the bold and zesty medium salsa—a delicious combination of tomatoes, onions, peppers and spices. This vibrant salsa infuses the Chilaquiles with robust flavor and just the right amount of heat, creating a balance of savory and spicy notes that tantalize the taste buds.

Then, add a generous sprinkling of shredded Mexican cheese blend to add richness and creaminess to the dish. This blend of cheeses, including cheddar, Monterey Jack and queso quesadilla, melts beautifully over the warm tortilla chips, creating an irresistible layer of cheesiness that ties everything together.

Top the Chilaquiles with perfectly cooked large eggs for more protein and heartiness for this dish. Whether you like your eggs fried, scrambled or poached, the eggs add a satisfying richness and velvety texture that elevates the dish to new heights.

To finish, garnish our Chilaquiles with diced red onion, chopped cilantro and a dollop of sour cream mixed with a splash of milk. These fresh and vibrant toppings add a burst of color, flavor and creaminess that enhances the overall dish. For an extra touch, sprinkle with crumbled fresco cheese, adding a creamy and tangy finish to each bite.

With its bold flavors, satisfying textures and customizable toppings, these Chilaquiles are sure to become a breakfast or brunch favorite that you'll crave again and again. So, fire up the skillet, gather your ingredients and get ready to delight your senses with this delicious and comforting Mexican-inspired dish.


  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. Coat an 8 x 8-inch casserole dish with cooking spray. Combine 1 cup Mexican cheese and the tortilla chips in the casserole dish.
  3. In a blender, puree the salsa and water. Pour the mixture over the tortilla chips, let stand for 5 minutes. Top with remaining ¼ cup Mexican cheese.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven. Using the back of a spoon, make 5 divots in the crust. Crack an egg into each divot. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  5. Bake for 10-15 minutes until egg whites are cooked, but the yolk is runny.
  6. In a small bowl, combine the sour cream and milk.
  7. Remove chilaquiles from oven, allow to rest for 5 minutes. Drizzle with sour cream mixture and sprinkle with onions, cilantro and fresco cheese.
