How to make Chilaquiles?
1. In the large skillet over medium-high heat, sauté chorizo until browned, 5 to 10 minutes, breaking into small pieces. Add half the onion and continue cooking for 3 minutes until the onion begins to soften.
2. Add the tortilla chips and 1 cup of the chipotle sauce and stir to combine. Add additional chipotle sauce as needed to moisten tortilla pieces. Continue cooking until the tortillas begin to brown, about 3 minutes.
3. Use a spatula to make a well in the center and add the eggs. Continue to stir with a spatula until browned, about 1 minute. Stir to combine with the chilaquiles mixture. Taste and adjust seasonings, if necessary.
Garnish with remaining chopped half onion and sour cream, avocado, queso fresco, and cilantro. Serve immediately, passing the lemon wedges and the rest of the chipotle sauce.
Feel free to swap out the chorizo with the protein of your choice, be it refried beans, pulled chicken, or pork.
