    Old Gringo here – lived on the border for 74 plus years and have partaken of fine Mexican and Tex-Mex foods from Corpus Christi, Texas north on the Rio Grande all the way into Santa Fe, New Mexico. I have personally spent time in Mexico visiting a lot of communities in between its east and west coasts all the way from the Mexican border with Guatemala to Juarez Mexico across from El Paso, Texas. I have grown older enjoying new and different Mexican foods. I tried this recipe of Red Chilaquiles with Fried Eggs but it is not what I expected. It is my opinion the texture and taste is more closely associated with my lunch time red cheese and onion enchiladas topped with an egg. Continuing with the concept of texture and taste I could easily picture Red Chilaquiles with Fried Eggs as being my breakfast of Huevos Rancheros. Eggs are a part of my morning diet and even found in some of my other meals throughout the day! Red and green chili is often part of my daily eating regime no doubt about it, love that flavor. Now, the Cotija Cheese was a nice touch and I can see it becoming a larger part of my cooking process. The recipe called for tenderizing the dried guajillo chilies via rehydrating through boiling the skins. Perhaps it was a misprint in the recipe but after reaching boil then adding the chili pods it was quite a bit longer than 3 minutes to soft. The recipe calls for eight ounces of tortilla chips but I found that 6 ounces of tortilla chips were more than adequate. The remainder of the recipe preparation went smoothly enough. The final blending process took forever to get the mixture to the video recipe consistency. Outcome: The overall texture contained minute pieces of the guajillo skin. Both my wife and I found this to be a distraction when compared to other dishes not prepared as presented by this recipe. The taste was OK but too closely resembling others mentioned above. Frankly, it was a great experience for this neophyte chef but unless requested by out of town guests I won’t be doing it any time soon.
