Serves Makes 6 servings



  1. Heat oven to 325 degrees.

  2. Cut tortillas in half and then slice into ½ inch strips. Coat in olive oil and sprinkle with a little salt. Spread evenly on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until crispy and brown, tossing halfway through. Remove from oven and set aside.

  3. In a saucepan, place tomatoes, onion and water and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook 20 minutes. Strain mixture and return to saucepan. Add mole paste, stirring until paste dissolves. Add broth, sugar and salt and bring mixture to a boil, stirring often; remove from heat.

  4. In a lightly greased 2-quart baking dish, evenly spread the beans and the baked tortilla chips.

  5. Spoon mole mixture over top.

  6. Then, make 6 indentations and carefully crack an egg into each of them.

  7. Sprinkle with cheese and bake 30 minutes. Garnish, if desired.
