Ingredients

Salsa Verde

  • 8 medium tomatillos, husks removed
  • 1 small jalapeno, stem and seeds removed (or leave seeds in for a spicier verde)
  • 2 tablespoons minced yellow onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3/4 cup fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Chilaquiles

  • 2 medium ears sweet corn, husk and silk removed
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 5 cups corn tortilla chips (about 5 handfuls)
  • Eggs cooked your preferred way, sliced avocado, red onion, cotija cheese, minced fresh cilantro, and sliced radish for topping

Instructions

Salsa Verde

  • Place tomatillos on a greased baking sheet. Broil under high heat 5-7 minutes until slightly blistered. Cool slightly and transfer to a blender or food processor.
  • Add remaining salsa verde ingredients and blend until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Chilaquiles

  • Brush corn cobs with olive oil. Grill corn over medium-high heat OR sear in a large cast iron skillet on the stovetop over medium-high heat, turning occasionally until sweet corn is slightly charred, about 6-8 minutes of cooking.
  • Allow corn to cool slightly, then carefully cut corn from cobs. Set aside.
  • Pour salsa verde into a large skillet over medium-high heat. Bring salsa verde to a simmer, stirring occasionally so it doesn't splatter.
  • Remove simmering salsa verde from heat and fold in tortilla chips until are evenly coated. Remove from heat and let tortilla chips soften slightly in salsa verde about 1 minute.
  • Top chilaquiles with eggs, sweet corn, avocado, red onion, cotija cheese, cilantro, and sliced radish. Serve chilaquiles immediately and enjoy!

Notes

Chilaquiles are best if served immediately after making.
