Tortilla & Egg Scramble with Garlic Guacamole & Fresh Salsa

This is a classic family favorite. My mom used to make this for me and my sister when we were little. It’s still my all-time favorite breakfast, and I’m not even that big of a fan of eggs… We have always just called it “Tortilla & Eggs”. It’s a super simple take on the traditional Chilaquiles dish. Corn tortillas are cut into strips, fried, mixed with scrambled eggs and cheese. It pairs perfectly with the homemade garlic guac and fresh salsa. Or, if you’re in a real rush or feeling lazy, just top with your favorite hot sauce.
