Build Yo Own Chilaquiles

So, you’re probably wondering, what are these mysterious chilaquiles we speak of? Well, they’re a traditional Mexican dish—think nacho vibes, commonly eaten for breakfast, though we don’t think there’s a wrong time of day for these. Breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, snack, midnight-can’t-sleep-meal, it’s as easy as tossing them in the oven! Some chilaquile-enjoyers add a fried egg on top, and we’d consider that an absolute power move. Undeniable genius thinking. Big brain thoughts. Have a favorite hot sauce? Now’s the time, drizzle that on top for the final touch. Chilaquile time!

What’s in your bag:

  • Chips!
  • Salsa verde
  • Corn + beans 
  • Cotija
  • Pico de gallo
  • Guacamole
  • Pork carnitas (if you ordered them!)

What you’ll need from home:

  • Oven-safe skillet (cast iron is best!)

Don’t have an oven-safe skillet? An aluminum foil lined sheet tray works as well!

  • Mixing bowl
  • Saute pan (if you ordered the pork carnitas!)

Total prep time: 10-15 minutes


The Chips, Salsa Verde, and Corn + Beans

  1. Preheat your oven to 350F.
  2. Place your chips into your mixing bowl. Pour your salsa verde all over and toss, toss, toss!
  3. Move your salsa verde tossed chips to your skillet or sheet tray. Distribute them as evenly as possible.
  4. Toss your corn and beans all over the chips. 
  5. Place the skillet or sheet tray in the oven for 7-10 minutes. If you ordered the pork carnitas, now would be a good time to start heating up your saute pan- peep the directions below!
  6. Remove carefully from the oven. 

The Cotija, Guacamole, and Pico de Gallo

  1. Right after you remove your skillet or sheet tray from the oven, top your chips with your cotija, guacamole, and pico de gallo. 
  2. And that’s it! You can munch on your chilaquiles right off of your skillet or sheet tray, or scoop them onto a plate. Enjoy 🙂

Pork Carnitas (if you ordered them!)

  1. Heat the pork in a saute pan with a teaspoon of oil over medium for about 4-5 minutes or until warmed through. Stir occasionally to prevent it from sticking to the pan. 
  2. Top your chilaquiles with the carnitas! 

And that’s it! Dinner solved, dinner served. #weareWECO
