You’ve got the gifts arranged for Mother’s Day, but what about the menu? Treat mom on Sunday to a delicious brunch that will make her mouth water, her heart swell, and her mind wonder how she got so lucky to have you. This simple menu is simple, delicious, and can be made on a large or small scale and according to taste. The star is a Mexican dish called chilaquiles that can be dressed up or down with mom’s favorite fresh flavors. Pair it with crispy hash browns or home fries, some spicy ketchup and a refreshing mimosa for a true Mother’s Day treat!
12 corn tortillas
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups enchilada sauce
cotija cheese (optional)
sour cream (optional)
Heat oil in a large frying pan on medium-high heat. Warm the enchilada sauce in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cut tortillas into one-inch squares and fry in the oil until crisp and brown, then transfer to a mixing bowl. Use the still-hot pan to fry the eggs sunny-side style with a runny yolk. While the eggs are cooking, pour the enchilada sauce over the tortillas and toss until they are evenly coated. Place a generous scoop of tortillas on each serving plate, topped with an egg, followed by cheese, guacamole, sour cream and cilantro. Serve immediately.
1/2 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon Sriracha hot sauce
Stir together and serve with home fries or hash browns.
