The Chilaquiles is served on your typical Taco Truck type plate and holds everything nicely. Two sunny side up fried eggs tops the Chilaquiles and when you poke into it, the yolk just covers the fried tortilla chips. There’s pumpkin seeds sprinkled on top along with creama and cheese. Even though the fried tortillas are covered in red chili cause, it still has a lot of crunch. Some eventually soggy, but it was overall crunchy.
