Today we’ve combined two of my favorite breakfasts, Shakshuka and Chilaquiles and smooshed them together to make our Shakshuka Chilaquiles. I’ve always been a savory and hearty breakfast kind of person and these two dishes are just that! I love the rich, tomato-y goodness of each dish and sort of melded the flavors together. There’s a bit of a smoky essence throughout the dish, from both the cumin and chipotle in adobo that I absolutely love; especially paired with creamy eggs and cheese. Also, whoever first thought of stirring tortilla chips into luscious sauce to be cooked down, but still maintain its integrity as a chip…you’re a genius! That’s all. lol. Enjoy! xx, Jenny

Shakshuka Chilaquiles

Servings: 4


  • 1 ½ tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil or grapeseed oil
  • ¼ small yellow onion, diced
  • 2 garlic clove, minced
  • ½ cup diced roasted red bell pepper

  • 3 large eggs


  • 2 ounces feta or goat cheese, crumbled

  • Lower heat to medium and stir in chipotle, adobo sauce, tomato paste, crushed tomatoes and stock to mixture and continue to stir until sauce is smooth. Simmer for 6 to 7 minutes.

    Do you think this would work with pita chips in place of the tortilla chips? Or do you think they would get too soggy.

    Those are my favorite two breakfasts also. I may have to take a day off this week to make this because I’m not sure I can make it to the weekend! You, my dear, are a genius!
