My great grandmother taught my grandmother, my grandmother taught my mother, and now my mom is finally teaching me our family’s famous chilaquiles recipe! This dish is so delicious, and it turns out it is super easy too!
One of the best parts of this recipe is that you probably don’t even have to go to the grocery store to prepare. The ingredients are items you most likely have in your fridge already (unless you are a college student and have only mustard, beer, and two week old leftovers like I used to).
Starting with vegetable oil on medium-low heat, fry up some chopped onion with tortillas that you cut up into squares. Then you add in some shredded chicken, followed by tomato sauce (or diluted tomato paste) and topped with lots and lots of cheese! Yum! And last but not least, you MUST garnish with some sour cream and avocado. I could honestly add this duo to any dish and I will devour it.
Then sit back and enjoy this authentic, yet simple Mexican dish you can make for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
1 TSP of Vegetable Oil
1 Chopped Yellow Onion
2-3 Flour or Corn tortillas
