    Chilaquiles

    Chilaquiles can be made with red or green enchilada sauce. If both types are served side by side on a plate, the dish is called "Chilaquiles Divorciados."


    Ingredients
    12
    corn tortillas (cut into 8 triangles per tortilla)
    3/4
    cup
    vegetable oil
    1/3
    cup
    chopped onion
    1
    cup
    enchilada sauce
    1/3
    cup
    grated enchilado cheese
    1/3

    3
    tablespoons
    crema
    1/8
    cup
    cilantro leaves
    *
    avocado slices (optional)
    Directions
    In a large frying pan over medium flame add oil and allow to get hot.
    Add 1/4 the amount of tortilla triangles and fry on either side till hard, crisp and golden.
    Remove from pan on a paper towel lined bowl to drain. Repeat with remaining tortilla triangles till all are fried.
    Set to the side.
    If there is still a puddle of oil in the pan discard it. In the same pan add chopped onion and saute over a medium flame for a minute or two.
    Add crisp tortilla triangles back to the pan and mix in the onion.
    Next pour enchilada sauce over the top and mix well. Let them cook for a 3 minutes to dry out the sauce a little.
    Top with enchilado and jack cheese. Mix to incorporate and allow to melt in.
    Remove from pan and top with queso fresco, crema, cilantro, and avocado.
