Baked Kale Chilaquiles

February 1, 2016


Thanks to The Table (and my affinity for all things Mexican food), chilaquiles has quickly soared up my “favorite breakfast foods” list.  The crunchy chips, with avocado, a yummy sauce and a runny yolk are pretty much the best way to start the day as far as I’m concerned.

Sadly, it isn’t the healthiest breakfast option out there… BUT when I came across this version from The Bojon Gourmet that added kale to it, I instantly felt better (funny how that works right?).

  1. Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add onion and stir for 5 minutes (until tender).
  2. Add kale to onion mixture (along with a splash of water) and stir until wilted.
  3. In a separate skillet (preferably at the same time you are making your veggie mixture), cook your chorizo according to the package's directions.

  5. Fold in kale/onion, black beans and chorizo.
  6. Oil a large baking dish and transfer chip mixture (along with any remaining sauce) and bake for 10 minutes or until chips have begun to crisp.
  7. Remove dish from oven and sprinkle with jack cheese.
  8. Gently make 4-6 divots in the chip mixture and carefully crack an egg inside each one.
  9. Return to the oven and bake until eggs have set (around 10 minutes).

Not only is it super tasty, but it was surprisingly easy to whip up – so no excuses on a lazy Sunday morning to not whip this guy up!
