BY:Dad With A Pan


  • 16 ounces canned red chile sauce
  • 10 ounces canned diced tomatoes and green chiles
  • 2 cups tortilla chips
  • 2-4 Nellie’s Free Range Eggs
  • 2 tablespoons Nellie's Free Range Unsalted Butter (or canola oil)
  • 1/4 cup queso fresco, crumbled
  • 1/4 cup Monterey jack cheese, shredded (optional)
  • 1 jalapeño, sliced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped


  • In a large pan, combine red chile sauce and canned diced tomatoes and green chiles. Bring to a simmer.
  • Toss tortilla chips into the simmered red chile sauce mixture until evenly incorporated. Optional: top with Monterey jack cheese and let melt.
  • In a separate pan, heat butter or oil on medium until shimmering. Crack in 1 egg at a time and fry until egg whites are fully opaque, about 2 minutes per egg.
  • Place a large handful of chips onto each plate. Garnish with queso fresco, jalapeño, and cilantro. Top with an egg or two per plate.
  • Enjoy!
