Directions

  1. Make SALSA: In batches, combine whole peeled tomatoes and green chiles in a blender; puree until smooth. Add salt, cumin and fire roasted diced tomatoes.

  2. To Make One Serving: Place 1 cup tortilla chips and 1/2 cup salsa in saute pan, and bring to simmer. Toss to coat, then remove tortillas to a serving platter. Toss 1/2 cup of shredded chicken, 1 tablespoon of chorizo and 1 tablespoon of corn in the remaining hot salsa; warm over medium-high heat.

  3. Top tortilla chips with hot chicken mixture and garnish with 1/4 cup lettuce, 2 tablespoons of crumbled queso fresco and 1 egg cooked sunny side up.

  4. Chef's Note: For added authenticity, make your own tortilla chips by cutting corn tortillas in eighths and frying in a 350°F fryer for 2 minutes.
