Servings 4 people


  • 24 Crispy Corn Tortilla Chips
  • 3 cups La Posta Verde Tomatillo Salsa (Hot) 1.5 (16 oz.) jars
  • 3/4 cups Shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 4 Eggs
  • 2 Green Onions mostly green part, minced
  • 2 tbsp Cilantro minced

  • In a large skillet coated with cooking spray add La Posta Verde Tomatillo Salsa and heat, while stirring, over medium heat. Slowly add tortilla chips, coating & tossing well with salsa. Top with Monterey Jack cheese. Reduce heat, and simmer until chips are soft yet still a bit crispy around the edges, about 3-5 minutes. For crispier tortilla chips, simmer 1-2 minutes.

  • To serve, scoop servings of chips and egg onto individual plates. Garnish with onion, cilantro, and avocado. Serve with refried beans, seasoned black beans or you favorite Mexican side!
