You traditionally poach eggs in a tomato and chile-pepper sauce when you make shakshuka, but this time we're taking chili in another direction! My twist on shakshuka uses a quick turkey chili as the base for the eggs, which then gets topped with cheese, avocado and tortilla chips.



  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Heat the oil in a 12-inch cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add half of the diced red onion; set the remaining onion aside for serving. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is slightly translucent, about 4 minutes, then add the garlic and cook until softened, 2 minutes.
  3. Add the ground turkey and cook over medium-high heat until cooked through and lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add the chili powder, cumin, paprika and 1 teaspoon salt, then season with pepper. Cook, stirring, until the spices coat the mixture fully, about 1 minute. Add the tomatoes and break them up using the back of a wooden spoon, then add the green chiles. Fill the tomato can with 1/2 cup water and swirl around to make sure all the sauce has been removed from the can, then add this mixture to the skillet. Let the chili simmer until it has thickened and some of the liquid has cooked off, 8 to 10 minutes.
  4. Make five wells with a back of a large metal spoon into the top of the chili and crack an egg into each hole. Put the skillet in the oven and cook until the whites are completely set but the yolks are still runny, 9 to 11 minutes.
  5. Remove from the oven and serve topped with the remaining half of the diced red onion, shredded Cheddar, cilantro, sour cream, scallions, avocado and tortilla chips.
