I love southwest Breakfast for Dinner Dishes. Huevos Rancheros are a regular on my table any time of day - and chilaquiles are right up there, too.
This skillet version is a great desperation dinner - and takes about 20 minutes from start to finish.
This version has two of my favorite southwest ingredients - corn and green onions. I can put green onions in everything - and I almost always use them any time a recipe calls for any kind of onion.
The flavors are my favorites and the textures are amazing as well - salty chips and creamy eggs, with the burst of corn kernels and grassy green onions. Corn grilled on the BBQ would be most excellent in this. Don't you just love corn season?
Happy Meatless Monday, Amigos!
