Instructions
 

Roasted Tomatillo Salsa

  • Heat your broiler to high. Place tomatillos, onion, garlic, and jalapeños on a sheet pan. Drizzle with oil and season with salt and pepper. Broil for 10 minutes, tossing halfway through, until soft and charred. Cool slightly. Remove garlic cloves from their peels.
  • Add all ingredients to a blender. Blend until smooth, thinning with water 2 Tablespoons at a time until it's your desired consistency. Taste, and season with salt and pepper. Chill the salsa until you're ready to use it.

Chilaquiles Verdes

  • Preheat the oven to 375° F. In a large saute pan, heat the oil until it's hot and shimmering. Fry the tortillas in 2-3 batches until crisp and golden. Drain on paper towels, and season with salt.
  • Grease four cocottes (or ramekins). Divide the tortillas between the cocottes, and add 3-4 Tablespoons of salsa verde. Gently toss to coat the tortillas. Make a nest in each cocotte, and crack an egg in the center. Season generously with salt and pepper. Bake for 15-18 minutes, until the whites are set and the yolks are still runny.
  • Serve the mini chilaquiles verdes with queso fresco, avocado, pico de gallo, cilantro, limes, and/or hot sauce. Enjoy!!
