Chilaquiles with Sunny Side Up Eggs – Arizona

If you love breakfast for dinner (aka brinner), chilaquiles (“chee-lah-KEE-lays”) is the dish for you. Found throughout the southwest but especially in Arizona, this amalgamation is a cross between nachos

Chilaquiles with Sunny Side Up Eggs – Arizona and enchiladas, only without the bothersome rolling. You can add whatever vegetables you like (we’ve seen versions with fresh radishes, or sautéed peppers and onions). Traditionally, eggs are the protein but some people add meat like shredded beef or chorizo. Sometimes served as a hangover cure, you don’t need to overindulge to enjoy this dish. Don’t skimp on the garnishes of scallion, cilantro and a squeeze of lime – they really seal the deal!

The Musical Instrument Museum in Phoenix has a collection of 13,000 instruments from across the world including one of the oldest goblet drums, made in China between 5000 and 4000 BCE.
