Chilaquiles. Or, as we like to say “chill-a-kee-les” for the sheer comfort this warm, tasty, casserole dish brings to our bellies. This is the perfect recipe to help you repurpose leftover tortillas, while adding on salsa and cilantro to your delight. The best part? For all you enchilada lovers, this recipe has a very similar taste profile, but a bit easier to make.
Perfect for serving alongside eggs or beans in the morning, or with leftover veggies for lunch or dinner. And, if you’ve got a flair for mixin’ things up, this dish lends itself to many different flavors. Try swapping salsa verde for red chile sauce, and garnishing with cilantro, jalapeños, guacamole or queso fresco.
