2 cloves garlic, sliced

1 white onion, finely diced

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

4 cups chicken stock

1 chipotle meco chile

1 habanero chile

1/2 bunch epazote, chopped

Salt and freshly ground black pepper


1 (3-ounce) link Mexican chorizo

2 teaspoons vegetable oil

3. Pour the broth into the saucepan and bring to a simmer; drop in the eggs and poach until just set. Add the bread and epazote and simmer for 1 minute more.
