Chilaquiles Verdes

This chilaquiles verdes recipe is made quickly in a skillet and topped with your favorite flavors making for a delicious breakfast or brunch!

Prep: 5 minCook: 17 minTotal: 22 min
Servings: serves 4


  • 8 corn tortillas
  • 2 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 1 cup salsa verde + more for serving
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 2 tablespoons cotija cheese
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro leaves


  1. Pile all the tortillas on top of each other and cut into 6ths or 8ths, depending on the size of your tortillas.

  2. Add the avocado oil to a skillet over medium-high heat. Once warm, add the cut tortillas and sauté for 10 minutes stirring frequently to crisp them up.
  3. You want the chips to be golden brown and crispy.

  4. Alternatively, if you don’t want to crisp them on the stovetop, you can spread them out on a baking sheet, spray them with your favorite cooking oil, and bake at 350F for 10 minutes.

  5. Add the salsa verde to the skillet and cook for another 7 minutes, stirring frequently.
  6. Remove the skillet from the heat and top with crumbled cotija, chopped onion, cilantro leaves, sour cream, and sliced avocado.
