Quick and Easy Chilaquiles With Fried Eggs

Chilaquiles is a Mexican dish with fried tortilla chips, spicy tomato sauce and cheese.  Use a prepared marinara sauce & add eggs and you have a quick and easy meal suitable for those busy weeknights or any night you want to get in and out of the kitchen in a hurry.

I prefer a homemade marinara sauce but on busy nights when time is limited, I’m always looking for a way to save on time in the kitchen.  I’ve used prepared sauces before but typically only find them okay.  Mezzetta offers their Mezzetta Napa Valley Homemade Marinara Pasta Sauces, a high end line of sauces which tastes like homemade.  The flavors are fresh, they use 100% hand-selected plum tomatoes, have no added sugars and no paste.  So far I’ve only tried the Spicy Marinara but I will definitely be headed back to purchase the other varieties very soon.
