Chilaquiles Frittata

easy to make breakfast dishes

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, but do you know what’s better than breakfast? Breakfast for dinner! Breakfast dishes are always easier to whip up, and are best on those nights when you don’t feel like spending hours in the kitchen cooking supper. This Chilaquiles Frittata takes two of my favorite dishes and combines them into one fast and easy meal! 

how to make chilaquiles

We’re taking a little help from the store by using canned spicy tomato sauce (Tip: You can find a Mexican style tomato sauce in the same aisle as the other canned tomato goods).

Once the chilaquiles are done, add the whisked eggs, and pop into the oven. I like frittatas because you can let the oven do all the work for you.

Once the chilaquiles frittata comes out of the oven, top it with some garnishes. I like to use cilantro, radishes, and queso fresco. You can find queso fresco in the cheese section of your grocery store. It’s usually by the fresh salsas or chorizo. If you can’t find it, you can just omit it.

Feel free to mix in other ingredients, like black beans and sliced peppers. You can also top the frittata with sour cream, pickled jalapeños, or avocados. It’s the perfect brunch recipe. Give it a try and let us know what you think by commenting below. Enjoy!

  3. 4 cups (4 handfuls) tortilla chips
  4. 1/2 cup monterey jack cheese, shredded
  5. 10 large eggs
  6. 2 tablespoons milk (or cream)
  7. 1 teaspoon salt

About The Chic

Back in 2004 when I was looking to name my events company, I stumbled across the word 'Chic' in an old dictionary. The definition was: “a fashionable lifestyle, ideology, or pursuit”. I fell in love with the word and the idea that chic is the pursuit of something better, prettier, or cooler than you are today. Chic isn’t a state of being or even a destination, chic is the journey you take on the way to something greater. ~Rachel
