Easy Chilaquiles Recipe

It’s no secret that I am fairly pathetic in the kitchen. I once ran a series on dinner recipes that required only four ingredients, and it was only last year that I baked muffins for the first time. So when Kerrie from Family Food and Travel offered to share a recipe for all of you, I was very excited. But I was even more excited to read the recipe and realize that it is a Mexican favourite from her husband! (Oh, how I love Mexican food!)

EASY CHILAQUILES (by guest poster: Kerrie @ Family Food and Travel)

This recipe is a favorite of my husband’s and reminds him of comfort food back in Mexico.  As a Chef specializing in Mexican food, he’s created an easy recipe that is sure to be a family favorite.  Also great made in large portions for a buffet or party.

12 Tomatillos

1 seeded Jalapeno

1 garlic clove

1 cup grated cheese

2 tbsp sour cream

Chilaquiles CollageDirections: 

Place tomatillos, half of onion, jalapeno, garlic clove, salt and pepper in a food processor or blender (we used our Breville All-in-One) until smooth. Put mixture in a pot on medium head till boiling, remove from heat.

Meanwhile, on a plate place tortilla chips. Pour boiling salsa over the top then sprinkle with cheese.  Broil for 2-3 minutes. Top with sour cream, diced onion and sliced jalapeno.
