So I love anything mexican. I almost wish, sometimes, that I inherited an “old mexican mama” cooking gene, but sadly that’s not the case. One of my favorite things is Chilaquiles. But ugh, it’s so darn HEAVY, GREASY and time consuming! So I came up with an easy recipe my family loves, especially my two-year-old. How great is that?
I also came up with this dish when faced with too many corn tortillas and eggs (WIC’s fault) and sick of the same tacos or fritatas’ over and over again. So I thought if I cut up the tortillas and fry up in a little butter and olive oil, add some of my favorite soy chorizo and then scrambled eggs it would be TASTY. Yep, it is SO GOOD. Not too greasy and heavy like the traditional mexican dish. Try it…
Easy sans Greasy (vegetarian) Chilaquiles
Pat o’ butter + 1-2 tbs of olive oil
6-8 corn tortillas, cut up with a pizza cutter into little triangles
Half a package of Trader Joes’ Soy Chorizo
4-6 large eggs + a splash of milk
Salt + pepper to taste
Garnish with cilantro and shredded cheese, if desired
Saute corn tortillas cut into triangles in butter and oil until desired brownness, I like em a golden brown. Then salt and pepper them. Add in the half tube of Chorizo and warm it for a few minutes, it doesn’t really need to be cooked, as it’s just soy and spices. Then, add in your eggs which you whisked up with a splash of milk. Flip em around to make sure they are cooked through. Serve up hot and you could add shredded cheese and/or cilantro. But they are just as delish without it. Mmmm.
