CHILAQUILES WITH ROASTED TOMATILLO SALSA
- Special equipment: 4 individual casserole dishes
- To make the salsa:
- Preheat the broiler or oven to 550 degrees F.
- Remove husks from the tomatillos and rinse under warm water to remove the stickiness. Put the chiles, garlic, onion and tomatillos on a baking sheet. Season with a little olive oil, and salt and pepper, to taste. Put on a rack about 1 or 2 inches from the heat, and cook, turning the vegetables once, until softened and slightly charred, about 5 to 7 minutes. When cool enough to handle, peel the garlic and pull off the tops of the chiles. Add all the broiled ingredients to a blender along with the fresh cilantro and puree. Pour in 1/4 cup of chicken broth and blend to combine. Add more broth, if needed, for desired consistency.
- To make the chilaquiles:
- Pour about 1/3 cup vegetable oil into a large saute pan over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the tortillas, working in 2 or 3 batches, and cook until lightly browned and nearly crisp. Drain the tortillas on paper towels and discard the remaining oil. Wipe the pan with a paper towel.
- In the same pan, add the tomatillo salsa and bring to simmer over low heat. Add the tortillas and cook until soft but not mushy, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Divide the mixture among 4 individual casserole dishes. Top with the cheese crumbles and onion rings. Drizzle with Mexican crema, sprinkle with some chopped fresh cilantro and serve immediately.
- *Cook's Note: Salsa Verde means "green sauce" and is typically made with tomatillos, green chiles and cilantro. Make your own fresh, or you can also find it canned at most supermarkets.
- Tomatillos are a small green fruit encased in a tissue paper-like husk. They should be used when they are still green, before they are ripe and the husk has turned brown. Before using, remove the husk, rinse and dry the fruit. (They do not need to be seeded.) They are found in most supermarkets
- **Cook's Note: Chilaquiles is a Mexican brunch dish invented to use leftovers. It is made with day old tortillas (cut or torn into chips) and salsa verde. They are cooked together until the tortillas are slightly softened. Chilaquiles are eaten alone or with beans, eggs or shredded chicken.
- ***Cook's Note: Queso fresco is a white, mild, fresh Mexican cheese with the texture of fresh farmer's cheese in the US. Queso fresco can be found in many supermarkets, Latin specialty markets or online. It can be substituted with a mild feta cheese.
This recipe was something I made up after having some sub-par chilaquiles at my favorite local breakfast place. This is my favorite Mexican breakfast dish and is great for a light dinner as well, serve with refried beans and some pico de gallo and you'll be craving for more! Garnish with more cilantro and sour cream. Great for leftover salsa verde or stale tortilla chips, perfect for a family brunch or other special breakfast occasion.

- Place tomatillos in a saucepan with water to cover; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; simmer until color begins to lighten and fruit is soft to the touch, 10 to 15 minutes.
- Transfer tomatillos to a food processor or blender. Add jalapenos, 1/3 cup cilantro, garlic, salt, and pepper; blend until smooth. Cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate at least 2 hours for best flavor.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
- Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir chicken and onion until onions begin to brown, about 10 minutes. Add olives; cook for 5 minutes. Add cilantro; cook and stir until wilted, about 1 minute more. Remove from heat.
- Line the bottom of a 8-inch square casserole dish with 2 to 3 layers of tortilla chips, breaking chips slightly. Add half of the sauce; toss with chips. Top with chicken mixture and the remaining sauce. Sprinkle cotija cheese on top.
- Bake in the preheated oven until tortilla chips are softened, 15 to 25 minutes.

- To make the salsa verde: Put the tomatillos, chile, onion, and garlic in a medium pot and add water to cover. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer until the vegetables are soft and the tomatillos turn pale green, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool slightly.
- Carefully transfer the boiled vegetables, along with the cooking water, to a blender. Puree for a few seconds to blend; be sure to hold down the lid with a kitchen towel for safety. Add the 1/2 bay leaf, oregano, thyme, salt, and broth. Continue to puree until smooth. You should have about 1 quart of salsa verde.
- Place a wide pot or pan over medium-high heat and coat with the corn oil. When the oil is hazy, pour in the salsa verde; it will bubble a bit. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is slightly thickened, 10 to 15 minutes. Cover, reduce the heat to very low, and keep warm while you finish the chips.
- Pour the vegetable oil into a heavy-bottomed pot or countertop deep fryer to a depth of about 2 inches and heat to 375°F over medium-high heat. Stack the tortillas and fan them with your thumb to separate. Cut the tortillas into 8 wedges like a pie.
- Working in batches, fry the tortilla chips, turning them with a skimmer or slotted spoon so they don't stick together, until golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove the chips to a paper towel-lined baking pan or brown paper bag to drain and cool. (Let the oil return to the proper temperature between batches.)
- To finish the chilaquiles, uncover the salsa verde and raise the heat to medium. Just when it starts to bubble, stir in the beaten eggs. Cook and stir for about 5 seconds, until the egg feathers into the sauce, thickening and binding it. Immediately add the chips, tossing gently until they have absorbed enough sauce to become soft. Take care not to break the chips. Sprinkle the Jack cheese on top and let it melt.
- Divide the chilaquiles among 4 plates. Sprinkle with the queso fresco, chopped onion, and cilantro. Garnish with the crema fresca and serve immediately.

- In a very large cast iron pan or heavy duty skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil. Add the diced onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion starts to soften, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle the cumin over the onions. Cook for 30-60 seconds until cumin is fragrant and lightly toasted. Add the salsa verde and bring to a simmer; reduce heat to low and continue to cook for 8-10 minutes. (Don't allow the sauce to thicken too much, but if that happens, add a few tablespoons of water or broth to thin it out.)
- Add about 1/3 of the tortilla chips to the salsa verde. Toss to coat. The chips will soften a bit. Stir in the next 1/3 and toss again; repeat with remaining chips. Leave heat on low and loosely cover the pan.
- In a separate cast iron or nonstick skillet, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil. Crack the four eggs into the pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook according to preference. (The photos show sunny side up eggs.)
- Uncover the pan with the tortillas and turn off heat. Carefully place the fried eggs on top of the chilaquiles. Top with the crumbled cheese, sliced avocado, a drizzle of crema Mexicana, and a sprinkle of cilantro. Serve immediately with lime wedges on the side.

- To bake the chips: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit with racks in the upper-middle and lower-middle positions. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper for easy clean-up.
- Brush both sides of each tortilla lightly with oil. Stack the tortillas, 4 at once, and slice them into 8 wedges. Repeat with remaining tortillas. Divide the wedges between the two baking sheets and arrange them evenly across the pans (it’s ok if the chips overlap; they’ll shrink significantly as they bake). Sprinkle half the salt over one pan and half over the other.
- Bake, swapping the pans on their racks every 5 minutes, until the chips are curling up at the edges and some are starting to turn golden on the edges. This could take as little as 10 minutes. Keep an eye on the top rack especially, as those tend to finish baking first. Once you see the chips on the top rack turn golden on the edges, remove that pan and move the pan on the lower rack up to the top. Bake until those chips start turning golden on the edges, then remove from the oven.
- Once the chips are out of the oven, warm 2 teaspoons of the olive oil in a large, non-reactive (stainless steel, enameled cast iron or non-stick) skillet or Dutch oven over medium heat. Once it’s shimmering, add the salsa verde, being careful to avoid splatters.
