Recipe Spotlight - Camp Stove Chilaquiles

Source: Fresh Off The Grid

One of our most favorite things about camping... is the fun you can have cooking meals in the outdoors! Some think of this as a daunting task and like to stick to easy go-to's like hotdogs or "just add water" oatmeal, but we're cut from a different cloth and enjoy a great meal, even without the finer amenities of a full-sized kitchen. 

So jump on our bandwagon here and enjoy this awesome breaky recipe for tasty chilaquiles!


Prep time = 5 mins

Cook time = 20 mins

  •  cup vegetable oil
  • 6 corn tortillas, , cut into wedges
  • ½ red onion, , diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, , minced
  • 1 (7oz) can el Pato sauce, (or 1 cup tomato sauce and a chopped jalapeño)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 – 4 eggs
Optional toppings
  • cilantro, avocado, diced red onion, grated cheese, fresh lime slices
  • Heat the oil in a skillet over high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the tortilla triangles in a single layer and fry for a few minutes until golden brown, flipping once. Remove and set aside on a paper towel to drain. Repeat with the rest of the tortillas.
  • Lower the heat to medium. Add the red onions to the remaining oil and saute for a few minutes until they begin to soften. Add the garlic and saute for about 30 seconds and then add the tomato sauce, salt, and a splash of water to the skillet. Bring to a simmer, then add the fried tortillas. Stir to coat.
  • To cook the eggs, move the tortillas to the outside edges of the skillet to create a well in the center. Drop the eggs into the sauce and cook to your liking–you can scramble them, or cover the skillet and allow them to simply poach in the sauce.
  • Serve with the toppings of your choice. Enjoy!


If you don't want to deal with frying the tortillas in camp, you can do this step at home and pack them with you, OR you can use store bought tortilla chips - no judgment from us!
