Servings 4 servings


  • 4 cups of totopos or corn chips preferably homemade
  • 4 cups of mole
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 purple onion sliced in rounds
  • 1 cup of Cacique Crema Mexicana
  • 1 cup of Cacique Ranchero Queso Fresco
  • 1/2 avocado sliced
  • 1 small bunch of cilantro for garnishing


  • Cook the totopos using corn tortillas from the prior day. Cut them in triangles and deep fry until golden brown.
  • Prepare the mole and keep it warm. Prep the onions and crumble the cheese. 
  • Cook the eggs to your liking. We are suggesting sunny side up. 
  • Build the chilaquiles by making a bed with homemade totopos, then add the mole, the onions, crumble ranchero queso fresco and crema Mexicana. 
  • Finish adding a fried egg, add mole, cheese, and crumbled cheese. Garnish with avocado slices and cilantro leaves. 


  • Using store-bought chips it is not recommended for this dish. Because they are thin and when soaked in the sauce they will become mushy and will not be crunchy, a texture that is a must-have in order to be perfect chilaquiles.
  • If you prefer to not fry the totopos, those can be toasted in the oven using oil spray.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
