Serves 8

  • 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced into 1-inch cubesSweet Potatoe Hash
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Pinch salt
  • Dash pepper
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon thyme leaves, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped Italian parsley
  • Pinch crushed red pepper flakes
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 cups coarsely chopped spring greens (Swiss chard, spinach, etc.)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 eggs, fried
  • Crème fraîche or sour cream, optional

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Toss the diced sweet potatoes with 2 tablespoons olive oil and then sprinkle with a pinch salt and a dash pepper. Transfer to a baking sheet and bake for about 15 to 20 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are almost done.

While the sweet potatoes are baking, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to a skillet and heat over medium-high heat. Add the onions and sauté until soft and then stir in the garlic, thyme, parsley, and crushed red pepper flakes, and sauté 1 minute longer.

When the sweet potatoes are done, transfer them to the skillet and then add the chopped greens. Sauté just until the greens are nicely wilted and the sweet potatoes are done. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

To serve, transfer the sweet potato hash to a serving plate or platter and top with fried eggs. Serve with a side of crème fraîche or sour cream.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the thinly sliced onions and sauté until the onions are wilted and slightly golden. Take the skillet off the heat and add the chile sauce, stir to combine.

Stir in the chips, coating them well with the sauce and onions. Let the chips sit in the sauce for 5 minutes while you whisk the crema.

To create the crema, whisk together the sour cream and lime juice, and then season to taste with salt.

Transfer the chilaquiles to plates or a platter and then top with the refried black beans, Mexican crema, onions, avocado slices, cotija or other Mexican cheese, and garnish with cilantro leaves and lime wedges. Serve immediately. Recipes and Photographs by Karista Bennett.
