Chilaquieles are a delicious meal, super easy to prepare. It is a meal that is perfect to make when you have too much tortillas too!
- Chile guajillo
- Chile de arbol (optional)
- 6-7 Tomato
- A bundle of Epazote
- A little less than a quarter of Onion
- 3-4 Garlic cloves
- Salt (as desired)
- Cheese (optional)
- Sour cream (optional)
- Begin with collecting all the items and fry the tortillas until they are golden brown. This recipe is best with tortillas that are stale or have been left over night. Many times my family uses the left over tortillas we have when we heat up to many.
- Set the tortillas in as plate with napkins to soak up the excess oil.
- A healthy way to do this would be to to toast the tortillas instead of frying them until they are really crunchy
- Toast the chile guajillo and chile de árbol separately (because they heat up at different speeds)
- Boil the tomatoes, garlic and onion in a saucepan with little water. Until they are soggy
- Set another saucepan on the stove to heat up as the sauce is being made.
- Begin to prepare the sauce by blending the chile guajillo, chile de árbol, garlic, onion, tomatoes, and about 1-2 cups of water.
- When the mix is all liquid and smooth, pour into the saucepan and wait until it begins to boil
- Add about 2 cups of water and epazote
- Add salt as desired
- On another saucepan pour plenty of sauce, enough to cover the tortillas, this way it would heat up faster, put the tortillas into the pan either cut up or whole
- Let the tortillas become soft and soak up the sauce,while they are in the sauce cut up the tortillas with a spatula, then place on a plate
- Add any cheese and some sour cream and you are ready to go! enjoy!
