I wanted to share a little breakfast dish you can whip up with the scraps leftover from your Fourth of July cookout this year. I made this over Father's Day weekend when we were away and barbequing every night. It's a quick dish called chilaquiles. I've made chilaquiles from slightly more involved and delicious recipes (like this one) for a brunch potluck before, but what I did here you can whip up with four simple ingredients you probably left out on the picnic table all night the night before.
You'll need 1-2 c. leftover salsa, about 1/2 c. chopped onions, some cheese (cheddar works) and the remains of the day in your bag of tortilla chips. Seriously, those things are always just lying around after a picnic or barbecue, aren't they?
Serve the chilaquiles with some avocado and eggs your way, and that's good hangover food. It's just science!
This is super easy. A little oil in the pan and saute the onions on medium for about five minutes or so until soft and just starting to brown.
Add the salsa, enough to cover the chips you anticipate adding.
I used a few kinds, some fresh salsa and a can of our favorite from the Herdez line, Salsa Taquera.
Crush your chips up just a bit.
Add the chips to the salsa mixture a bit at a time.
Stir until they are all coated.
Add cheese, to your liking, and enough so there's some in every bite.
I hope you have an awesome Fourth of July. I'll be dreaming about the East Coast and what a phenomenal Fourth we had last year in New Hampshire while I'm bundled up in blankets at the parade in Sausalito and then later watching the fog turn different colors from the fireworks over the San Francisco Bay. xoxo!
