  • Saucepan
  • Strainer
  • Tray
  • Frying pan
  • Paper towels


  • 24 corn tortillas
  • 3 cups of guajillo chili sauce 4 guajillo chilies, 1 tomato ball, 4 cloves of garlic, cumin, salt and 1 cube of bouillon powder
  • 2 cups of chicken breast shredded
  • 1 cup of white onion finely chopped
  • 1 cup of Mexican cream
  • 2 cups of fresh grated white cheese


To prepare the sauce

  • Place the ingredients in a saucepan with 1 cup of water and boil for 20 minutes.
  • Blend ingredients. When ready, blend. Using a strainer, strain the sauce and pour into a saucepan, season with salt and a chicken cube. The sauce should be hot.

To prepare the chilaquiles

  • Cut the tortillas into triangles, place them on a tray and let them dry or bake for a few minutes.
  • Fry the tortillas in a frying pan or deep fryer until golden brown.
  • Remove excess oil using paper towels and place in a container.
  • Bathe with sauce. Place a bed of fried chips, add the chicken, onion and bathe with the hot red sauce. Add the Mexican cream and cheese.

To prepare the eggs

  • Fry the eggs in a skillet. Cook it until the yolk reaches a minimum consistency.
  • Serve by placing the egg on the chilaquiles. This dish should be served right at this moment so that the chips are enjoyed with a certain degree of crispiness, or else you'll end up with something that's simply too soggy and less than festive.
