What are chilaquiles? They are a magical way to use up old, stale tortillas! Chilaquiles are an excellent Mexican breakfast dish, sometimes served with chicken. They are such a yummy way to make a quick breakfast, lunch or dinner. You can also add shredded cooked chicken to this dish for added protein.
I just love that this dish comes together in about 10 minutes! What a win! I had such fun creating this recipe. Basically I got everything out of the fridge, set a time for 10 minutes, then went quickly to work! Love it!
The flavors of tacos and the fresh taste of zucchini really make this quick dish special. Feel free to adjust the spices to your taste and be sure to season with plenty of salt and pepper. Enjoy!
Zucchini and Egg Chilaquiles
Makes 2-3 servings
3 cut up tortillas (I like to use kitchen shears) + olive oil
1 zucchini, diced
1/2 shallot, diced finely
2 eggs, whisked together
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
1. Heat olive oil in a medium skillet over medium high heat. Fry the tortilla pieces until fairly crispy. Remove them from the pan and place on a plate.
2. Add a bit more olive oil to the pan and saute the zucchini and the shallot for 2-3 minutes or until softened.
3. Add in the whisked eggs to the pan along with the tortilla pieces. Cook all together. Add in spices and saute. Add salt and pepper to taste.
