Green Chilaquiles with Chicken

By Margarita Carrillo Arronte

Recipe adapted from MEXICO: THE COOKBOOK by Margarita Carrillo Arronte.

Instructions

REGION: ALL REGIONS
PREPARATION TIME: 25 MINUTES
COOKING TIME: 20-25 MINUTES
SERVINGS: 6

Put the tomatillos, chiles, onion, garlic, and cilantro (coriander) into a food processor or blender and process until thoroughly combined. Strain into a bowl.

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a saucepan and add the tomatillo sauce. Simmer for 10–15 minutes, until thick. Add salt to taste.

Heat the remaining oil in a heavy frying pan or skillet. Add the tortilla pieces and cook over a medium heat, turning occasionally, until golden brown on both sides. Remove from the pan and drain on paper towels.

Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C/Gas Mark 6). Put the tortilla pieces into an ovenproof dish and add the tomatillo sauce. Gently stir to coat all the fried tortilla pieces. Top with the chicken and onion slices. Pour the sour cream over the top, sprinkle with the cheese, and bake for 10 minutes. Top with cilantro (coriander) and serve.

Note: Chilaquiles can be served with beans and chicken, beef, or fried eggs.
