My absolute favorite type of date is of the breakfast variety. I don't know what it is, but eating breakfast out just seems so special/luxurious. My perfect morning is a bike ride or run (or some other active outing) and then breakfast out. So many good feels.

The first time I had chilaquiles was on a breakfast date with two sweet friends of mine. The breakfast place we went to has such delicious and fresh options--freshly squeezed juices, avocado toast, a veggie market hash, these chilaquiles. Mmmmm. After having the chilaquiles there, I had to recreate them. And this recipes is suuuper simple. You can take out the chicken and add in black beans if you're vegetarian or don't want to take the time to get prepare chicken. Want this for lunch or dinner? Go for it!! The cilantro and avocado or non-negotiable though. Never....unless you think cilantro tastes like soap. Apparently it's a legitimate, genetic thing. If you're one of those people, I am so sorry for you.

First things first, make sure you have cooked chicken on hand. You can use rotisserie chicken, leftover chicken from dinner, or even pre-cooked deli chicken. Also, you can make your own salsa verde if you want to. But really, who's got time for that?? Chop your chicken along with the green onion, red onion, cilantro, and avocado. Heat a skillet to medium heat and fry your egg to your preferred doneness. Meanwhile, heat a mini cast iron skillet (or 6 inch regular skillet) on medium heat. Dip your chips in the salsa verde and layer them in your skillet. Top with chicken, feta cheese, and red onion and cook until the chicken is warmed. Once your egg is cooked, place it on top of your chicken and chip mixture and then top with cilantro, green onion, and avocado. And if you like lime, just give it a little spritz!...and theennnn devour!

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did. The great thing about it is that you can easily double or triple it in a larger skillet for you and a loved one(s). Super simple and super delicious! Tell me what you think after giving it a try.
