Brunch is definitely our favorite mealtime of the week! However, this easy and delicious Smoky Green Chile Shakshuka can be served and enjoyed any time of the day! Let’s face it, eggs are the universal ingredient for many cultural dishes. Eggs cooked in a warm and comforting tomato sauce can be found in many cultures. Shakshuka, Eggs in Pergutory, Huevos Ranchers are just a few of those cultural dishes that are delicious. Also, it doesn’t hurt that this dish is so easy to whip up in a jiffy! This is our country version of Shakshuka that we whipped up over the weekend.
We added spicy, diced green chiles and smoked paprika to our dish to give it a spicy twist of flavor. Giving the eggs a quick cook under the broiler also ensures that the eggs are cooked on top as well. However, we prefer our yolks to be a little bit runny. It’s really a matter of personal preference. Also, this dish is best served with a fresh baguette or crispy roasted potatoes!
