A dear neighbor shared this recipe, which she used to make from scratch. My version takes a few shortcuts. —Marina Castle Kelley, Canyon Country, California

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1/2 pound fresh chorizo or bulk spicy pork sausage
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes with mild green chilies, undrained
  • 1 can (10 ounces) diced tomatoes and green chilies, undrained
  • 4 cups tortilla chips (about 6 ounces)
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • Chopped fresh cilantro
  • Optional toppings: sour cream, diced avocado and sliced red onion

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°. In a large skillet, cook and crumble beef and chorizo with onion and garlic over medium heat until beef is no longer pink, 5-7 minutes; drain. Stir in both tomatoes; bring to a boil. In a greased 1-1/2-qt. or 8-in. square baking dish, layer 2 cups chips, half of the meat mixture and 1/2 cup cheese; repeat layers.
Bake, uncovered, until cheese is melted, 12-15 minutes. Sprinkle with cilantro. If desired, serve with toppings. Yield: 4 servings.
Health Tip: Chilaquiles are indulgent any way you fix them, but they can be lightened up: Use chorizo chicken sausage and baked chips to lop off 15g fat.
