Easy Chilaquiles

What you need: 

olive oil, as needed
1/4 cup bell pepper, diced
1/2 cup Mexican salsa
1 large handful corn tortilla chips
1/2 cup cooked black, kidney, or Mexican red beans
1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
1 cup cabbage, shredded
1 green onion, chopped
1/2 small tomato, chopped

What you do: 

1. In a medium pan, heat a small amount of olive oil and add tortilla chips and bell pepper. Pour salsa over chips and toss to coat.
2. Fry several minutes until chips begin to get soggy, then add beans and cilantro. Toss gently once more, then plate on a bed of shredded cabbage.
3. Top with extra cilantro, scallions and diced fresh tomatoes.
Using good salsa and good chips is the key to making the best chilaquiles! I used TJ's Veggie and Flaxseed Tortilla chips, and their Tomatillo and Roasted Yellow Chili Salsa. Yum.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

I will definitely make this again, and soon! I was running low on salsa so I ended up cooking the chips in a can of green enchilada sauce with a dash of epizote and it all was very yummy.

I made this dish for my sweetie in the morning on his birthday and he loved it! Indeed, it was very easy to prepare and cook. His only suggestion (to me, at least) is that I add more chips and beans next time. Eventually, the soggy morning chilaquiles turned into crunchy nachos!
Thank you for sharing!

I made this for my omni parents yesterday--got thumbs up from both of them, from Dh and DD as well!  I loved it and plan to make it often.  I put a few more diced peppers in it than called for but otherwise didn't tinker with it.  Thanks for a great recipe!

I looked at this and had the thought of soggy corn chips which didnt sound appealing but all the other positive comments prompted me to give it a go last week and it was fantastic! I regretted not having any cilantro, so I got some today and will make this again tomorrow! thanks for putting this up

REALLY good!  I had to make do with what I had (corn tortillas instead of corn chips) and I added red onions w/ the bell peppers since I didn't have green onions.  I was craving cabbage and this hit the spot!  Thanks for the recipe!

This was SO amazing... I've made it 3 times now and still have cravings for it most days...  :)>>> It's never the same twice depending on what I have on hand, but usually I use a sweet corn and black bean salsa (my husband loves sweet salsas) with more black beans and some frozen corn tossed in too. One time I didn't have any cabbage and so I used some leafy green lettuce and made some inside-out taco things by wrapping the mix in a leaf of lettuce, but I think I prefer the cabbage - so sweet and tasty! I'd never heard of these before we went vegan, but boy am I happy to know them now, thank you!  :D

I've been wanting to make this recipe for a long time! Chilaquiles was seriously one of my favorite dishes when I was an omni.  According to my husband this was really delicious.  I wasn't able to try it because i'm on a strict 6 week thing (eat to live), soooo...I was super jealous watching him eat this.  But that's ok.  I'm happy that I was able to make something that he enjoyed.  I served this with a doloup of guacamole, and that is the only change I did.  :)>>>
