Chilaquiles is a dish, which is made from tortillas cut into
triangles, and they are slightly fried.
The tortillas are covered in a sauce and can be served with some type of
meat or even covered with an egg and cheese and served for breakfast. This dish is usually served with a side of
beans and rice.
3-5 jalapeno chilies
1 pound tomatillos (removed from the husk and rinsed)
4 cloves of garlic (peeled)
10-15 tortillas (cut into chips size pieces)
1/4 cup chicken
broth or 2 tbsp. chicken bullion
egg (1-2 per person)
cilantro (finely chopped)
crumbled queso fresco
Mexican crema or sour cream
head of lettuce (chopped finely)
Fry tortilla squares until firm but not overly done, set
aside on napkins to help absorb excess oil from chips
To make the salsa:
Put the tomatillo and chilies into a medium pot and boil for
10-15 minutes over medium heat until the tomatillos and chilies change
color. Remove chilies and tomatillos from
the water and put them in a blender with 1/2 onion, garlic and chicken broth
(blend till smooth).
In a large pot add 1/2 tablespoon of vegetable oil and cook
at low heat. Pour in the sauce once the
oil is warm, slowly. Fry the sauce for
10 minutes and add in the chips and coat with the sauce (stirring the mixture
gingerly not to break up the chips.) Add
the chilaquiles to individual plates and top with 1-2 fried eggs, cilantro,
diced onion, sour cream, lettuce and serve.
