Eggs Poached in Chile Tomato Broth

Serves 6

  • • 3 poblano chiles (plus another for garnish, if desired)
  • • 1/3 cup cooking oil
  • • 1/2 white onion, finely chopped
  • • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • • 7 red, ripe tomatoes, roasted, peeled, and chopped
  • • 2 cups chicken broth
  • • Salt
  • • 12 whole eggs
  • • 1/2 cup crumbled queso fresco, for garnish
  • • Corn tortillas

1. Toast the chiles directly over an open flame, on the broiler, or on a griddle to char the skins. When well-blistered and charred, put the chiles in a plastic bag for about 10 minutes. Then remove the loosened skin with paper towels. Split the chiles open, remove seeds and veins, and cut into 1/4-inch wide strips.

2. In a saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat and fry the onion, garlic, and tomatoes, stirring constantly until the mixture forms a thick paste. Add the chicken broth, 3 of the chiles, and salt to taste. Cook over low heat until the mixture comes to a simmer.

3. Drop raw eggs into the hot sauce, one by one, poaching them about 4 minutes (or to your desired degree of doneness). To serve, place two poached eggs per serving in a bowl, then top with tomato sauce and chile strips. Garnish with the crumbled queso fresco and serve with hot corn tortillas.
