Gluten-Free Green Chilaquiles Recipe

If you think you may have one too many eggnogs tonight or tomorrow, I have an excellent way for you to help kick that hangover and refuel your body. This Gluten-Free Green Chilaquiles recipe is comfort food at its finest. Savory, simple, and not just good for breakfast but for any time of the day!

I used Xochitl gluten-free corn tortilla chips in this recipe (they make Christmas colored – red and green – ones too, which might look pretty cool in this and other recipes, but I used the traditional ones for mine). I also used their salsa, which is phenomenal! Be sure to look for gluten-free enchilada sauce, as enchilada sauce often contains gluten or wheat as a thickener.

Ingredients

  • 6 cups Xochitl corn tortilla chips (about ¾ bag)
  • 1 tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
  • 1 (15 ounce) can green enchilada sauce
  • 6 large eggs
  • ½ teaspoon kosher or fine sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place the tortilla chips on a sheet pan and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet. Add the enchilada sauce and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Whisk the eggs with ½ teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon pepper.
