About the Recipe
To make the chilaquiles first the tortillas have to transform into tortilla chips then the salsa is prepared, the ingredients are mixed and at the end they are garnished. The recipe is laborious but not difficult.
If possible make the chilaquiles with old tortillas because they are drier, they absorb less fat and they come out crispier.
In this recipe the tortillas are going to be fried and it is very important to use a vegetable oil since the olive oil is not good for frying dough.
The salsa that is used in the chilaquiles is prepared with 1 jalapeno pepper although this quantity can be varied, depending on your spicy tolerance.
