As a household of two, we always seem to have extra tortillas leftover whenever we make tacos. Luckily, those extra corn tortillas can be put to good use in a recipe like this skillet chilaquiles with eggs! If you have an oven safe skillet, you can whip up this recipe in just one pan so you have less mess to clean up afterwards. For those of you who aren’t familiar with chilaquiles (they are new to me too!), it is a dish made from corn tortillas and red salsa or mole. Oftenimes the tortillas are fried until crispy first and then sautéed in the salsa, but I skipped that step and thought they were just as good. 🙂
Will and I ate these for breakfast one morning on their own or you can totally serve this skillet chilaquiles with eggs with a side salad for a filling dinner that is quick and easy. To increase the fiber in the dish, I added some sliced summer squash since I wanted to make it more of a one-dish meal.Print
