fresh salsa (makes way more than the 1/2 cup needed for the chilaquiles
six tomatillospeeled and washed
1hot pepper of choice
1/2-1teaspoonancho chile powder
salt and pepper to taste
lime juice and/or apple cider vinegar to taste
1/2-3/4cupcup fresh salsa
another 1/2- 1 teaspoon ancho chile powder
two heaping handfuls of corn chips or six corn tortillas cut into wedges and pan fried or baked until just crisp
1/4cupshredded sharp cheddar cheese or crumbled queso fresco or feta
1/4cupfresh diced tomatoes
diced red onion
to make the salsa put tomatoes, tomatillos, pepper, onion, and garlic cloves in a heavy pan or cast iron skillet over medium high heat, cover and turn until the skins of everything begin to blacken. Remove from heat and cover to cool slightly. combine with all remaining ingredients (except corn, if using) in the bowl of a food processor and process until mostly smooth adding the to taste items at the end a pinch or half teaspoon at a time until desired flavor is reached. add corn and combine
if you are using tortillas now is the time to fry them up. lightly toss with oil and toss in a preheated 12-14 inch pan and toss until just beginning to brown, curl, and crisp. set aside. Alternately you can bake them at 400 for about ten minutes but since this is a summer time recipe I usually pan fry or use up the left over corn chips from last weekend’s barbecue
lightly coat a large frying pan with oil and add the salsa fresca simmer over medium heat for about ten minutes to slightly thicken, remove all but 1/2 to 3/4 cup of salsa. Put the extra salsa in a mason jar and refrigerate until ready to use- it should last a week or more.
add the tortillas to the pan with salsa and toss until the tortillas are soft and coated with the sauce (this usually takes a bit longer with corn chips) Top with the fresh diced tomatoes and cheese of choice, cover and set aside.
Cook the eggs how you want ‘em
Divy up the tortillas on to two plates, add your egg, garnish with all the good things.
Use the rest of the salsa at next week’s barbecue and repeat.
