Puerto Peñasco Chilaquiles

Chef Owen May and Dr. Michelle May (with credit to Bob and Dawn!)


During a weekend trip to Puerto Peñasco (Rocky Point) Mexico with dear friends Bob and Dawn, we had this delicious breakfast of chilaquiles and just had to share!

When we travel with friends or family, we divide up the cooking to make it easier on everyone. We made breakfast burritos and Bob made these fabulous chilaquiles!

Chef Notes

  • Chilaquiles (pronounced chēləˈkēlās) is a Mexican dish of fried tortilla strips topped with a spicy sauce, and cheese. To make a heartier dish, you can add beans, chicken, chorizo, beef, pork, and/or eggs.
  • Cotija is a soft Mexican cheese; feel free to substitute cheddar or Monterey Jack.
  • To keep the stack from sliding around, put a dab of beans on the plate and “stick” the first tostada shell on top of it.
  • For a festive plate, serve the enchilada sauce “Christmas Style” with red on half and green on the other!
  • We love this recipe, but if you’re short on time, simply top corn tortilla chips with warm canned enchilada sauce (red and/or green), and a fried egg!

Health Notes

What can I say about chilaquiles? It’s all about balance, variety, and moderation!
