Chilaquiles are a traditional Mexican recipe normally served at breakfast or brunch time. A rich spicy tomato sauce is poured over crispy tortillas and then it’s topped with cheese and fried eggs. This gives our huevos rancheros dish a good run for its money. Simply delicious!

Breakfast Chilaquiles Recipe
- 1tsp Gran Luchito Smoked Chilli Paste
- 1 can Chopped tomatoes
- 1 Small onion
- 3 Garlic cloves
- 1 lug Olive oil
- Salt & Pepper
- ½ Cup Crumbled Feta (or queso fresco if you can get it)
- ½ Cup Grated Cheddar
- Pack of tortillas chips
- 4 Free-range eggs
- 4 Radishes (finely sliced)
- Handful fresh coriander leaves (chopped, keep the stalks))
- 2 Fresh limes (sliced into wedges)
- Begin by making the sauce. In a blender/food processor, add the Gran Luchito Smoked Chilli Paste, tomatoes, onion (cut into wedges), garlic, coriander stalks and a few tablespoons of tap water. Blend to a smooth paste. Don't worry if it seems too watery as you're going to be cooking it which will evaporate some of the liquid.
- Add olive oil to a large frying pan over a medium heat until quite hot. Pour in the tomato paste and bring to the boil (be careful as it will splutter). Once bubbling, turn down the heat & simmer gently for about 30 mins. Season with salt & pepper until happy with the flavour. Tip: If you can taste too much garlic, you haven't cooked it for long enough.
- Place about half the tortillas into a large ovenproof dish. Spoon about half of the sauce over them and gently move around until they're nicely covered. Sprinkle with half the feta and cheddar, as well as half of the chopped coriander leaves.
- On top of this, add the remaining tortillas and sauce, making sure all the chips are covered. Add the remaining cheese (hold back the coriander for now). Broil for about 5-6 mins or until the cheese is golden and crispy.
- Meanwhile, fry the eggs in a little oil. You want to keep the yolk nice and runny as this will really add something to the dish.
- Remove from the grill, top with the fried eggs and sprinkle with fresh coriander and sliced radish. Serve with wedges of lime for people to squeeze as they please.
