Well, today, I will rectify that oversight! Instead of frying this whole dish, I will make a few substitutions so that the dish will be lighter than the traditional! I try to watch my cholesterol intake because, as of just recently, my cholesterol is a bit on the higher side!

What are Chilaquiles?

According to Wikipedia, chilaquiles are “a traditional Mexican dish. … corn tortilas, fried… red or green sauce… lots of regional variation”

I bake my own  tortilla chips rather than using salty,  store bought chips. Baking the eggs, rather than frying,  adds less fat to the entire dish.

I also make my own Homemade Enchilada Sauce! In addition, I will use shrimp that is baked along with everything else, instead of my usual chorizo.

I add canned black beans to increase the fiber and protein in the dish! This is a fantastic use-up for freezer burned or stale tortillas!

How to make this Baked Chilaquiles Recipe?

  1. Baste both sides of tortillas, lightly with Mazola Corn Oil.
  2. Cut the tortillas up into bite sized pieces.
  3. Bake at 400°F for about 10 minutes, until golden brown.
  4. Heat homemade enchilada sauce, or store bought, in a large saucepan. Mix in a handful of tortilla chips at a time.
  5. Mix all tortilla chips, so that they are covered in sauce. Heat on low, stirring often for a few minutes, until chips soften a bit.
  6. Baste cast iron skillet with a bit of Mazola, and layer the chip mixture in, top with drained and rinsed black beans.
  7. Make a hole with your spoon and break eggs into the holes.
  8. Bake at 400°F for 10 minutes. Carefully remove from oven and sprinkle with cheese and top with shrimp. Cook another 10 minutes, or until eggs and shrimp are done to your liking.

Bake for another 6-8 minutes, until eggs and shrimp are done. Serve warm, with sliced jalapeños, lime wedges, Queso fresco, salsa, lettuce, sour cream or desired toppings.
