  • You may think otherwise, but chilaquiles are actually quite easy to make, especially if you have premade salsa. You can make them with red salsa, green salsa, mole, with or without meat, and with or without eggs. In my house, our favorite chilaquiles are made with chicken, red salsa and fried eggs. Chilaquiles are basically golden tortillas soaked in salsa and covered in cheese, crema and meat or eggs, depending on your taste. They make a great breakfast or lunch and they are very filling. Serve them with refried beans and avocado. Enjoy!
