OK, we've had a pretty good run of it lately with pre-game peasant/bachelor dishes so we'll try it one more time.
Tonight's edition is a good ol' fashioned chilaquiles recipe. Chilaquiles are one of those recipes that you can use to empty out the fridge at the end of a long week. Here's what you'll need:
- A bag of chips or some stale tortillas that are crisped in the oven.
- A jar of salsa, homemade salsa, or a 24 oz can of crushed tomatoes.
- 1 chopped onion
- 1 chopped jalapeno
- 1 cup Chicken or veggie broth
- Some sort of prepared protein: cooked chicken, beef, tofu, mock duck, tofu, or even beans.
- Misc veggies in your fridge
- Shredded cheese
- Sour cream or Mexican crema
In a large dutch oven, heat 1-2 T oil over medium heat. Add about 3/4 of the onion and stir for 3-4 minutes. Add the salsa or tomatoes and broth and bring to a boil. Dump in your chips and make sure they are all submerged. If they are not submerged, add some water. Toss in the cheese and protein (and/or misc veggies), cover, and turn off the heat. Let stand for 3-5 minutes.
Open the lid and scoop out the servings into bowls or small plates. Sprinkle with remaining onion, jalapeño, and cilantro. Drizzle with crema or sour cream and enjoy.
