Father’s Day is almost here!  I’m all about pampering Dad on his special day– the wonderful Fathers in our children’s lives contribute so much to who they are and who they will become, and it’s great to have a reason to celebrate that! This Father’s Day, I’m cooking up something super simple and MEGA delicious for Kyle: Chilaquiles!

Chilaquiles is a Mexican breakfast specialty, which is known for curing hangovers and bringing a smile to almost any guy’s face.  It’s inexpensive, easy, and a totally yummy comfort food that is completely addictive once you start chowing down! So push the stack of pancakes aside this year (I find pancakes so stressful to cook on that griddle anyway) and cook up this one-pan dish that the whole family can enjoy.  Marlowe took one look at this and said “Marlowe eat it that yummy thing!”  I can guarantee we’ll be going in for round two…

Have you ever had Chilaquiles? Do you love them as much as I do??!

Ingredients…

(Serves 2)

 

Step by Step...

Step 1

Sauté

In a large frying pan, heat the Vegetable Oil over medium heat.  Sauté the onion until golden (approximately five minutes) and add the eggs and the tortilla strips to the pan, stirring continuously until eggs are firm (approximately 5 minutes).  

Step 2

Add Enchilada Sauce

Add the enchilada sauce and the water to the pan and turn the heat up to medium-high.  

Step 3

Add Chilis

Add the green chilis and simmer until the sauce thickens (approximately 5-7 minutes).  

Step 4

Add Cheese

Top with the cheese, and turn the heat down a bit, folding the cheese into the eggs until melted.  

Step 5

Garnish

Top with cilantro, serve hot, and enjoy!
