This is one of my favorte comfort food combinations, and it couldn’t be any simpler. If you can fry a decent egg, you can make this dish. I like to think of it as a sort of poor man’s poutine. The hatch chile sauce is very mild, and velvety smooth – it makes a luscious gravy for thick cut fries. Crisp on the outside, fluffy on the interior. The runny egg on top adds even more richness.
- two eggs
- a can of hatch green chile enchilada sauce
- some thick cut fries, I like the Walmart steak fry variety
In the above picture I quickly cooked the steak fries in the air fryer, while the green chile sauce cooked on the stove top. Two pan fried eggs cooked sunny side up on another. I’ve actually got some refried beans hidden under the pile in this picture too for added, er health!
