Amy's Chillequilles With Eggs

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Aimchick

I learned to make this when i lived in Santa Cruz. It was a breakfast staple in my house for a long time. I know chillequilles is something completely different, but this is what we called it. I like to add hot sauce and black olives to this as well

This was really good! I love the combination of eggs, cheese, and salsa; and this one did not dissapoint. I cut the recipe in half, and it was still a huge portion for one- next time I'll only make a third. I didn't have rotel, so used the salsa option. This would also be great with green onions on top. Thanks for a great breakfast!
