Busy Mom's Easy Stovetop Chilaquiles

Chilaquiles are a traditional Mexican dish that we ate regularly when I was growing up. I remember my mom making this dish in the oven, however, my recipe is stovetop and achieved in less than 30mins!

**Side Note: You can add in bell peppers and onion if you like. My son's prefer it plain so I leave it out. 😛

3 tablespoons of oil (I use grapeseed oil)
6 corn tortillas, cut into 1in squares
Shredded cheese
Salt, Pepper

  1. Place oil in frying pan on medium/high heat.  Stir in tortillas so the oil is evenly distributed over all.
  2. Stir tortillas regularly and continue to cook until golden brown. Once they have cooked much like a tortilla chips, you are ready to continue to the next step.
  3. Whisk eggs and add mixture into pan. Combine with tortillas so they are evenly distributed in the pan. Scramble until all eggs are cooked thoroughly.
  4. Add salsa of your choice and stir in with mixture. Mixture will combine turning the eggs the color of your salsa. I use medium salsa. 
  5. Add salt and pepper to desired taste.
  6. Sprinkle shredded cheese and stir to combine.
Once cheese has melted, it is ready to be served! Enjoy!
