A beloved Mexican breakfast dish that’s equally great for lunch or dinner, chilaquiles feature tortilla chips that are lightly cooked in a red or green sauce and topped with melted cheese. It was created as a way to use up leftover tortillas and other ingredients, though the dish works equally well with store-bought chips, as in this recipe. If you have some corn tortillas on hand and want to make your own, see Oven-Baked Tortilla Chips, below. If you like, to round out the meal, serve the chilaquiles with scrambled or fried eggs.
