Back in the hills of Missouri, where I went to college we used to eat this amazing breakfast called “The Stretch.” It is a layered dish with potatoes, chili, eggs, cheese and onions. Well I did some of that, but of course with my own twist in these Chili Huevos Rancheros.
Of course I had to add bacon, a homemade restaurant style salsa and avocado to the mix.
If you are looking for the ultimate early morning tailgate food then this is it, no questions asked!
Everything in this dish can be made right on the grill, just bring a pot for the Wolf® Chili and for the eggs, everything else, including the bacon, goes right on the grill!
