Chilaquiles Verdes with Fried Eggs

"Chilaquiles are a traditional Mexican breakfast made with tortilla chips simmered in sauce (green or red). This version is Chilaquiles Verdes using the green sauce and is made with store bought tortilla chips making it super easy to throw together. Top it with a Fried Egg, Queso, Avocado, Cilantro, Radish and Onion, it is a festive brunch that all will enjoy!"
