Chilaquiles is a Spanish word describing a dish of fried tortilla strips typically topped with a spicy tomato sauce and cheese. Most of the recipes you will find out there have runny eggs cooked on top. They come in two colors of sauces either red or green. The green sauce is called Chilaquiles Verde sauce.
