Do you love nachos with sour cream, cheese and guacamole when you’re on a terrace? Then you will also love this dish! Chilaquiles is originally a breakfast dish, but is also delicious to serve as a snack or side dish. They have many variants of this dish in Mexico. In some areas they want the tortilla chips to stay crispy, while Mexicans from other areas have a completely different opinion about this. Also, variety exists in the toppings. The recipe for chilaquiles that we got from the Mexican Daniela is with pulled chicken, a delicious tomato sauce and a fried egg. Do you prefer to eat vegetarian? Then you can replace the chicken with jackfruit, as suggested in the Tinga Tostada's recipe.


Preparation method


  • Boil the chicken breasts for 30 minutes in water with 1 garlic clove and salt

Step 1: Prepare the sauce

  • Cut the tomatoes into quarters, cut half of the onion into half rings and finely chop the remaining garlic cloves and jalapeno.

  • Heat some olive oil in a pan and let it get really hot.

  • Add the tomato, jalapeno, garlic, and onion until it begins to brown.

  • Add a stock cube and 250 ml water and let it simmer for 15 minutes.

  • Blend the mixture in a blender until smooth.

  • Return the sauce to a pan, bring to the boil and season with salt and pepper

Step 2: Prepare the toppings

  • Remove the chicken fillets from the pan and make 'pulled chicken' by pulling it apart with a fork

  • Crumble the feta

  • Cut the remaining onion into half rings

  • Fry an egg (sunny side up)

Step 3: Make the chilaquiles

  • Add a large handful of totopos or tortillas to the sauce, let it soak for a while and place on a plate. Then add some extra sauce and then the toppings: sour cream, onion, feta, pulled chicken and the fried egg.

  • Serve the chilaquiles.

Buen provecho! ('Enjoy your meal!')

Daniela regrets that Mexican cuisine is often confused with Tex Mex, while it has a very varied cuisine to offer. She told us more about this.
