I’ve been having a craving for chilaquiles lately for some reason and I don’t know why. But I thought this would be a good chance to post a chilaquiles recipe up on the blog. But I wanted to make it more like a nacho plate- because I’ve been craving nachos too!

I decided to make a chilaquiles style nacho recipe with chorizo and egg making it a perfect brunch or “breakfast for dinner” meal. They’re cheesy and full of flavor from the chorizo and chile sauce. Then you have a runny egg all over everything! YES!

Normally a chile sauce for chilaquiles has some tomato base to it but I wanted the sauce to be a little thicker for nachos. I felt by adding more liquid to it would turn the nachos too mushy after being in the oven for the eggs to cook. It turned out great and has more of a bold flavor to it this way too!

Prep for the Chilaquiles Sauce

    Funny story, I created this recipe last year with tortillas and enchilada sauce and every one was saying “Oh you made Chilaquiles!” I had never heard of them until then, and ever since then I see them everywhere! I love Mexican food so happy to have discovered yet another kind! Great recipe and beautiful photos.

  2. Lisa Grinstead Hubbard says:

    Oh my gosh! I had something similar (but not so good) at a restaurant for brunch once and have thought about them ever since then. Now thanks to you, I have a recipe and can make my own! ????

  3. These look INCREDIBLE!! I’ve eaten them at restaurants, but never made my own. Chorizo is PERFECT for this. Yum!

  4. Suchi Modi says:

    Alway eat them in restaurant but never thought about makking them at home! Looks perfect.

  5. I love the runny eggs! Breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, or brinner, I’ll take this on my plate! On a side note, your social shares on the left hand side stick out and block the first couple letters of each word. Is there a way to minimize this so I can read it more easily?
