  • Prep: 15 mins
  • Cook: 20 mins


2 red tomatoes

2 guajillo peppers

1 tree chili

1 onion

2 cloves garlic

8 corn tortillas

2 tablespoons cream

1 branch of epazote

1 sprig of cilantro

1/2 cup vegetable oil

Ground pepper to taste

Salt to taste


The tortillas

1Cut 8 corn tortillas into triangles.

2Pour about 1/2 cup of oil into a frying pan. Then heat the oil over high heat.

3Place the tortilla triangles in the pan and fry for about two minutes. Move them constantly to prevent them from getting burned.

4When the triangles are fried, you can place them in paper towels to remove excess oil.

5Repeat the previous steps until you finish frying all the triangles.

The sauce

1For the red sauce, remove the seeds and veins from 2 guajillo peppers and 1 tree chili.

2Place the peppers in a saucepan, also add 2 tomatoes.

3Cover these ingredients with water and boil them over high heat.

4Let the ingredients cook in the boiling water for about 4 minutes, until the peppers are soft.

5Move the peppers and tomatoes to a blender, also add 1/4 onion, 1 clove garlic, and ground pepper to taste.

6Blend these ingredients.


1Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a pan over medium heat.

2Place the sauce un a pan, with 1 branch of epazote and salt to taste. Mix the ingredients and boil the sauce over high heat. When boiling, reduce to medium heat and cook the sauce for about 3 minutes, until it slightly thickens.

3Reduce to low heat, place the fried triangles in the pan and try to mix them with the sauce (very carefully to avoid breaking the tortillas).

4Cook the triangles for about 3 minutes, until the sauce has a very thick consistency.

5To decorate, finely chop 1/4 onion and 1 sprig of cilantro.

6Remove the branch of epazote that you put in the chilaquiles.

7Serve the chilaquiles and add 2 tablespoons of cream, the onion you chopped, sprinkle 2 tablespoons of fresh ground cheese and the cilantro you cut.
