Having my mom in town means lots of delicious meals. 
For breakfast one morning, she made Chilaquiles.
Have you ever had Chilaquiles? its so good, right?!

This recipe is super simple

What you need:

  • A packet of corn tortillas
  • A can or homemade green salsa
  • Onion- chopped
  • Quezo cotija
  • Oil ( we used soybean oil
  • Sour cream 
  • A pinch of salt

First you slice your tortillas into bite size squares and set aside

We made our own green salsa by blending tomatillos (about 7 small ones)
4 chile serranos without the stem, 3 fresh garlic cloves and 1/2 cup of water. 
and a pinch of salt.
  If you use a can of green salsa, I recommend you toss the salsa in a blender and add a pinch of salt and a clove of garlic.  it will make the salsa taste so good. 

 In a deep pan, heat enough oil to cover the tortilla "chips". 
After they start to get golden and a little bit crispy, remove them from the oil and place unto a plate. we like to use napkins on our plates to absorb the excess oil. 

Once you have finished frying your tortilla,

place the salsa in the pan with the remaining oil. 
allow the salsa to fry up for about 5 to 6 minutes or until you see it start boiling. 

Immediately toss in the tortilla chips and start folding them in. 

After the sauce has covered all the tortilla chips, you can add some chopped onion and fresh Cotija cheese on top.

you can eat this with some sour cream on top and with some scrabbled eggs. 


Buen Provecho!!!
