    megu_megu's Note:

    I think that's the name, or you can call it "a bomb". This is NO healthy food, or vegan. It was my favorite dish from a restaurant called Potzolcalli, sadly (not for my arteries :P) they no longer have it on the menu. You can buy tortilla chips and save a lot of time, but I prefer the long way.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 20 corn tortillas
    • oil (canola or similar, not olive)
    • 1 lb fresh tomato
    • 1 green chili pepper ("chile de arbol")
    • 1/4 onion, slices (save some for topping if you want)
    • 1 tablespoon chicken stock powder (or more if you want more salt in your dish)
    • 3 potatoes, sliced, boiled
    • 1 piece chorizo sausage, fried, diced (best if isn't really spicy)
    • 5 slices bacon, fried, diced
    • 5 slices ham, diced
    • 3 tablespoons sour cream, for topping
    • 5 slices cheese, for topping (any melting type would do, I use "manchego")


    1. 1
      Fry the tortillas in a frying pan ('till they look brown-ish and stiff but not burn) and separate (you can drain the oil and press with paper towels).
    2. 2
      Combine the tomatoes with the chili pepper and onion in a blender (completely ground).
    3. 3
      Put this mix in a pot (big enough for the tortillas to fit as well), along with just a little bit of oil, and the chicken stock powder, with medium heat, mix with a spoon to dissolve the powder and wait to this "sauce" to change color (from a bright red -still raw- to a more pale red -yay, it's done!-).
    4. 4
      Crush the tortillas into big chunks and toss them in the pot, do not stir, let it cook for 5 minutes or so, in low heat.
    5. 5
      To this point you have red chilaquiles (or Chilaquiles Rojos ), normally you just add slices of onion, cream and cheese and that's it, but we're going for the hardcore version :) so, stir a little, just to check the sauce dip all the tortillas.
    6. 6
      Toss the potatoes, chorizo, bacon and ham on top of the chilaquiles, then the sour cream and finally the cheese (you can put all this in the oven for 5 minutes if you want to melt the cheese or let the chilaquiles do the work).
