Raise your hand if you love chilaquiles! ? Now raise your hand if you’ve ever had them with mole! ??
In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, which runs from September 15th through October 15th and celebrates the many influences and inspirations Hispanic and Latino communities contribute to the United States, I’m incorporating some of my favorite flavors and ingredients that were always found in my mom’s kitchen growing up.
Growing up, my mom used to make us chilaquiles rojos every other Saturday morning while we watched cartoons, scrambling the eggs into the tortillas but adding mole (al estilo Oaxaca). Did you know eggs are a nutritional powerhouse, with one large egg containing 6 grams of high-quality protein and nine essential amino acids, all for 70 calories?!
Topping your chilaquiles with a fried egg is an equally delicious and simple variation to start your morning off! ? Research shows eating high-quality protein foods for breakfast, like eggs, can help you and your family feel more energized and satisfied throughout the day.
