Chef Notes:

This can be served as a lunch or dinner option by leaving off the eggs. Possibly serve with refried beans, seasoned black beans, elote, etc.; the possibilities are endless. 
I had a version of this in the Dominican Republic on my honeymoon that has been a great memory for over 15 years. I can still recall the smell, the texture, the taste of that dish. 

Salsa roja can be substituted for the roasted tomatillo salsa. 

All-natural, minimally processed chicken with no artificial ingredients. *
