Chilaquiles (pronounced "chee-lah-KEE-lehs") is a Mexican dish that traditionally simmers leftover tortillas in zesty salsa. Our version is a one-pan wonder loaded with zucchini, tomatillo salsa, eggs and tortilla chips that are soft in the pan’s centre and crispy around the edge. 

  • Prep time 10 minutes
  • Total time 30 minutes
  • Portion size 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 small zucchini , thinly sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 4 green onions , sliced
  • 1 jar (430 mL) tomatillo salsa or salsa verde
  • 250 g unsalted corn tortilla chips , (about 8 cups)
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
  • avocado slices (optional)
  • sour cream or plain yogurt (optional)

Method

In large ovenproof skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; cook zucchini and salt (if using) until slightly softened, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in green onions; cook for 1 minute. Reduce heat to low; stir in 1 1/2 cups of the salsa. Remove pan from heat; fold in tortilla chips until evenly coated.

Bake in 400°F oven until tortilla chips in centre of pan are softened and chips around edge are crisp, about 10 minutes. Using spoon, make 6 wells in salsa mixture; crack 1 egg into each well. Continue to bake until whites are set but yolks are still runny, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Sprinkle with feta and pepper; spoon remaining salsa over top. Serve immediately with cilantro, avocado and sour cream (if using).

Change it up: Chilaquiles Rojos
We chose a green tomatillo salsa for our chilaquiles, but you can also make a rosy version (called chilaquiles rojos) with red salsa and your favourite red veggies. We suggest sweet red peppers and thinly sliced red onions.
