Desi Chilaquiles

May 24, 2022

Living in California, Chitra grew fond of chilaquiles, a traditional Mexican breakfast dish made with fried tortillas cooked in sauce. This is her Indian-inspired version of the recipe.

Desi Chilaquiles is a perfect weekend brunch recipe or even a quick lunch or dinner because it comes together pretty quickly. If you don't feel like the eggs on top, Chitra sometimes just puts a little dollop of sour cream or plain yogurt on top with the rest of the fixings. Brunch is served!


Serves 2



1 jar Brooklyn Delhi Tikka Masala

~35 tortilla chips (2 generous handfuls of chips)

¾-1 cup shredded Local Roots sharp cheddar cheese

2 Local Roots eggs

Local Roots red onions, thinly sliced

Cilantro, chopped

Avocado, sliced

Brooklyn Delhi Tomato Achaar



1. In a large skillet (that has lid), add jar of Brooklyn Delhi Tikka Masala and bring to a simmer on medium heat. Add a little water if necessary to get to a consistency that will coat the chips but not slide off. Turn the heat to medium-low. Gently add your tortilla chips, turning them with tongs to coat them in sauce. Once all the chips are coated, layer on cheddar cheese. Cover the pan until the tortilla chips are slightly softened and the cheese melts, about 2-4 minutes, depending on how soft you like your chips.

2. In a separate pan, fry your eggs. Top the chilaquiles with the fried eggs. Garnish with onion slices, chopped cilantro and avocado.

3. Serve hot with lots of Brooklyn Delhi Tomato Achaar.
