Baked Chilaquiles

Chilaquiles is a traditional mexican breakfast where corn tortillas are fried, scrambled eggs are added and either a red or green sauce is mixed in, topped with sour cream and cheese. Although I like chilaquiles, I don’t like soggy tortilla chips or the egg mixed in with the tortillas. So I make mine a bit differently.

My version of chilaquiles: a pyramid of black beans, crispy tortilla chips, green enchilada sauce and mozzarella cheese, baked until the cheese is gooey and bubbly, topped with a fried egg, cotija cheese, sour cream, cilantro and scallions. Slightly different technique, huge difference.

Ingredients: (serves 4)

  • 12 corn tortillas, cut in triangles and fried until golden
  • 1 can green enchilada sauce
  • 1 can black beans
  • Mozzarella or pepper jack cheese
  • Cotija cheese or feta
  • 4 fried eggs
  • Green onion
  • Red onion
  • Cilantro
  • Jalapeno
  • Sour cream

Directions: preheat oven to 450. In oven-safe bowl, add about 1/3 c. black beans. Top with fried tortilla triangles, lots of green salsa, and mozzarella cheese.  Bake in oven until cheese is melted. Place a fried egg on top, and garnish with cotija cheese, cilantro, green onion, red onion, jalapeno and sour cream.
