So I can’t decide which I like better chilaquiles verdes or chilaquiles rojos.

What is your preference?

They are both amazing but if I had to choose I might have to go with the red ones. I just love a good salsa roja.

The best thing about chilaquiles be it red or green is how inexpensive they are.

If you cook Mexican food often then you most likely already have the ingredients needed to make them.

All you need are corn tortillas, salsa verde and your choice of garnishes.

You can use store bought salsa verde but making your own is very easy.

If you use my recipe for salsa verde make sure you omit the avocado.

You don’t need it for chilaquiles.
