Green_Chilaquiles I love chilaquiles. It’s such a great, low maintenance, comfort food dish that’s great anytime of the day. It’s such a hardy dish, especially when shredded chicken or eggs (cooked how you like them) are added to them. I also really love that as long as you have tortilla chips and salsa, you can make chilaquiles; although I prefer to eat my chilaquiles the same way as my nachos, loaded.

For the longest time I was partial to chilaquiles in red sauce, but I recently had a chilaquiles dish that was drenched in the most glorious salsa verde and topped with spicy radishes and sharp cotija cheese…it was amazing. So today we have our own version of green chilaquiles, made with a simple roasted tomatillo salsa, and topped with a handful of fixings. Chilaquiles is such an inexpensive crowd pleaser, perfect for your next brunch or low key dinner party. Enjoy! xx, Jenny roasted_tomatillios Green_Chilaquiles_recipe

    In the salsa verde, I used, to literally, burn a poblano pepper, direct in the stove… once is all burned, I took out the seeds inside and when you make the blending with your tomatillos, garlics, and all that you did, just put it there (dont wash it, put it all just without the seeds). Your salsa will go to the next level!!!

      Anthropologie! They are a little $$$$, doesn’t seem like they have them anymore but I believe the brand is Liquida. :)

    Look at those eggs nestled in there! I’m just picturing the yolk as I stuff my face in this. It’s not pretty but so right!

    Made this morning. Since we’re not big fried/poached eggs fans here, I just half-scrambled the eggs in the pan before adding the chicken stock and salsa, and other toppings.

    Really, really delicious!

    I gotta say I am partial to the salsa verde option myself and I will probably make this with chicken. Looks lovely and delish!
