To start with, prepare large bowl to combine all the ingredients in. You don’t need tortilla and cut it to strips. If you find half a package of yesterday’s corn tortillas, this is great base for easy chilaquiles frittata.

Instead of Pepper jack cheese, we used Feta. It is salty so be careful with salt if this one is your option. Some guys add corn, bell pepper and bacon.

 

We used Spanish Chorizo sausages since we had some to slice and use the leftovers but you can use whichever you prefer as long as they are cured. It means they are safe to eat without boiling. Our version was smoked and it added special smoky, comforting, and tasty flavours.

Do you know what are chilaquiles?

It is Mexican dish of fried corn tortilla pieces simmered with salsa or mole and typically topped with cheese and other accompaniments such as sliced onions, shredded chicken, and fried or scrambled eggs.

Are chilaquiles crispy or soft?

The best chilaquiles aren’t so much wet as moist; chips retain just a bit of crunch but dissolve in your mouth into a mix of comforting starch and hot salsa. In short, chilaquiles are essentially soggy nachos .

 

Chilaquiles frittata is the best possible way to serve simple and irresistible meal weather made in skillet on your stove top over medium heat or in the oven since eggs and cheese keep it all together. We prefer chilaquiles frittata bake since it takes only 10 minutes of active time, and the oven does the rest of work!

As about tomato sauce , you can use tomato puree or, salsa, diced tomatoes, canned tomatoes or pelati. It’s all about what you find in your pantry. This is why we love this bake that much. Simplify your ingredients (leftovers) for the best results!

So, this is one of those simple yet seductive meals that we could eat over and over again. The dish itself tastes different every time, depending on the leftovers we have in the fridge. As long as it includes tortillas or tortilla chips and Mexican spices, it feeds the whole family. This one is made of 8 whole eggs and can feed 4 people. Since all the ingredients are already salty, be careful with adding extra salt to the dish.
