A soft fried egg topping a crispy salad of corn tortilla strips, salsa and avocado salad. This Avocado Egg Chilaquiles dish is a great breakfast, brunch or dinner item for those times when you don’t have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen!

Avocado Egg Chilaquiles


Today for Sunday Supper it’s all about the egg! Thanks to Wendy from Holistic Woman for hosting this week’s event!

While we are honoring the egg in many forms today, I am actually honoring it by itself! This dish is so simple and so delicious! One of my favorite breakfast foods (besides crispy bacon!) that I would ask Nanny to make for me when I was lucky enough to be with her for breakfast, was the fried egg. Fried in a lot of salty butter with a soft yolk that I could dip my toast in.

As I got older, I grew to have an aversion to eggs. Maybe because I had one that wasn’t cooked too well or maybe because my Nanny wasn’t cooking them for me anymore. However, this recipe for Avocado Egg Chilaquiles may have changed my mind entirely and I may be eating soft cooked eggs much more often again!

This recipe uses corn tortillas that you bake on your own in the oven. I’ve made this recipe a few times now and when I didn’t have the corn tortilla strips, I use the delicious Veggie & Flaxseed Tortilla chips I buy at Trader Joes!

I also have made this with lemon instead of lime juice. You need a little acid in the guacamole recipe and either works fine however I still love the lime flavor over the lemon when it is a Mexican style recipe!

Here is a photo from the first time I made this recipe. I want you to notice that the egg has a flaw, and if you compare it to my featured photo, you will see that there is no flaw – meaning there is not a white spot on top of the egg! I learned a little secret to making an egg look as beautiful as the featured photo in this post from my friend Marion over at Our Life Tastes Good! She strains her egg and explains to you in her post for Skillet Breakfast Potatoes how she does it. If you’re curious, take a hop on over there and find out her secret!
