Anne's Chicken Chilaquiles Rojas

Rating: 4.25 stars
One of my favorite comfort foods from growing up in Tucson. It's great for a potluck or party and you'll get lots of compliments from your guests! This is a "roja" version but there is a "verde" style, too. Both are great and can be made hot or mild depending upon your heat tolerances or preferences. Serve with your favorite salsa, if desired.

Chilaquiles Scramble

Rating: 3.67 stars
My landlady in Mexico used to make chilaquiles when she had stale tortillas. She always scrambled the eggs in, instead of the more typical fried egg on top. It's a very flexible recipe, so use what you have on hand for a yummy brunch dish.

Pulled Pork Chilaquiles

Rating: 5 stars
No one expects a dish this delicious while camping. By preparing the pork at home, cooking over the fire is kept to a minimum. Store leftovers in the cooler, and then reheat and serve with a fried egg for a breakfast that will fuel your adventures all day.

Jollyrogers' Chilaquiles

Rating: 4.42 stars
This is a Mexican casserole that my Grandpa used to make every Thanksgiving and Christmas. The smell alone makes me feel like I am six years old and waiting for dinner to start. This recipe has been handed down from my Grandpa to my dad to me. The original recipe did not call for teaspoons or tablespoons, but with ounces and pounds. It can be made with or without chorizo. I prefer it with soy-based meatless chorizo substitute, which also makes it a good dish for vegetarians.

Verde Chilaquiles

Rating: 4.33 stars
This recipe was something I made up after having some sub-par chilaquiles at my favorite local breakfast place. This is my favorite Mexican breakfast dish and is great for a light dinner as well, serve with refried beans and some pico de gallo and you'll be craving for more! Garnish with more cilantro and sour cream. Great for leftover salsa verde or stale tortilla chips, perfect for a family brunch or other special breakfast occasion.
