  • 1 7oz can Green mild chiles

  • 4 ounces chorizo sausage

  • 2 cups salsa verde

  • 4 cups thick tortilla chips

  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

  • 2 sliced and diced avocados

  • 1/2 cup fresh chopped tomatoes

  • Directions

    1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F.

    2. In a large oven safe skillet, sauté onions with chorizo over medium heat. Cook until chorizo starts to brown and is nearly cooked through.

    3. Add salsa verde to skillet. Bring temperature up to medium high and bring mixture to a slow boil. Scrape up any brown bits. Simmer for 3-5 minutes until sauce thickens. Stir occasionally.

    4. Add tortilla chips by the handful to the skillet. Toss with a spatula to completely cover the chips in the sauce. Don’t worry about breaking some of the chips.

    5. Remove skillet from heat. With a large spoon, make a well in the sauce and chips. Then crack 1 egg into it. Repeat with the remaining 5 eggs. Season with salt and pepper.

    6. Transfer skillet to oven and bake until the whites are set and the yolks just start to set, about 8-10 minutes.

    7. Remove skillet from oven and top with cheese, cilantro, and avocado.
