Cut 6 soft corn tortillas into triangles. In a small bowl, beat together 4 eggs.
In a large non-stick skillet or pan, drizzle a thin layer of Canola oil over medium heat. Once heated, add the tortilla triangles in batches, being careful not to overcrowd. Fry briefly on each side until crisp. Transfer to a towel-lined plate.
If necessary, add a little more oil to the skillet and pour in the beaten eggs. Cook, breaking up the eggs into small pieces, until scrambled but still retaining some moisture. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm. Place the crispy tortillas back in the skillet and cover with 1 cup salsa. Stir to combine, but keep a few edges uncovered to retain their crispy texture. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes to thicken the mixture.
Add in the eggs, stirring to combine, and top with ½ cup grated cheddar cheese. Cover the skillet and cook just long enough to melt the cheese.
Place the avocados, Greek yogurt/sour cream, garlic powder and lime juice in a blender or food processor. Process until very smooth. Make sure there are no lumps. Season with salt and pepper.
Serve Chilaquiles Rojos with avocado crema drizzled on top and desired toppings. Enjoy!
Use store-bought corn tortillas: Substitute store-bought corn tortillas and skip the frying. I have done this many times and I get great results!
Keep the edges dry: When stirring the salsa into the lightly fried tortillas, keep a few of the edges dry to help retain some of that crispy texture.
Adjust the heat: The level of heat in Chilaquiles Rojos is completely customizable based on the type of salsa you use. Add anything from mild salsa to extra spicy or even make your own.
