How to make Chilaquiles - Viva Mexico!

On September 16, Mexico celebrates its Independence Day. It marks the beginning of a decade-long revolution.

Commonly confused with Cinco de Mayo, this holiday celebrates the moment when Father Hidalgo called for Mexico's independence from Spain in September 1810. The day is marked by a national holiday in Mexico, an array of performances from fireworks to dance routines.

And like in many other holidays, food is all around, because what is best than food to have an authentic Mexican Fiesta? To celebrate, we’re sharing a flavourful and quite simple to make dish that we’re sure y’all enjoy amigos: Chilaquiles Rojos & Verdes, made by the talented Yvis from Latin Soul by Yvis 


A Chef Word

Hola! My name is Yvis and I’m a chef with a Latin soul! I wanted to share a recipe with you all because today is Mexico’s Independence Day! 
My passion is cooking and making people happy! 


How to make Chilaquiles 

  • 2 bowls of corn chips
  • 1/2 cup of sour cream
  • 1 cup of Salsa Verde and/or Red Salsa
  • 1/2 cup of cheese (any of your favourite one), Jalapeños to your liking, salt & pepper, 1/4 of an onion (optional) and top with coriander.

    1. Grab corn chips (can be store bought or home made!). I personally like making them at home by cutting corn tortillas and then frying them!
    2. Meanwhile, bring Salsa Verde or Homemade Style Red Mexican Salsa to a simmer in a medium saucepan. Stirring gently heated through, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, and add on top of the corn chips.
    3. Serve and top with feta, ricotta or mozzarella, sour cream, onion, Jalapeños & coriander. You can also add some avocados or salsa Pico de Gallo
    4. Enjoy!!!
    Gracias Yvis for sharing your passion with us all!!!
