So Chilaquiles?

Simple Black Bean, Corn and Mango Chilaquiles with Queso Fresco |

Can someone please tell me how the heck to pronounce that.

Because honestly, I can’t even read Chilaquiles. I try to sound it out and man, it just does not work. Like at all. I sound like a total idiot and or someone who just got out of surgery and is all jacked up on pain meds.

And trust me, I know what someone on a whole lot of pain meds sounds like.

I think we are the family of broken bones and surgery. My younger brother Kai takes the crown for the most painful surgeries. Hip replacement at thirteen anyone? Broken femur at seven? Collar bone…..twice.

Yeah, he’s had a rough number of years.

Oh then there is Brendan.

Brendan was playing on the railing of our stairwell with my two oldest brothers when he was, well actually I wrote nine or ten here at first, but then my mom said he was three (well almost four)! Then she thought about it and said, “maybe you better leave it as nine or ten”. The kid is a monkey and my parents did everything they could to keep the kid from constantly climbing, jumping, swinging and exploring. They put him in gymnastics, gave him a trampoline, a bike, ice skates, even a jungle gym and the kid still wanted to climb unsafe things. Things like trees, and houses (now he flies over jumps made of snow) and um, the stairwell.

Well one time, the stairwell did him in. He slipped and fell fifteen feet on his face and basically shattered his whole face.

I know! It is crazy, but it was pretty bad.

Not sure what else he broke, but he was one lucky kid and all good in a couple of months, but his nose will never be completely straight again.

Oh and I feel I should tell you that I have not once broken a single bone.

Not once.

I am such an outsider in my family. Seriously, if I did not have my dad’s nose (trust me, it is his) I would have a blood test taken.

Oh and I also feel I should tell you that I am in a huge food rut. All I want to make is fruit salsa, eggs and basically nothing else. My brain is fried. Fried.


Oh and yeah, I should probably tell you a little about these Chilaquiles. Basically they’re best breakfast, lunch or dinner. They are so quick, so easy and so good. I mean tortilla chips are involved. That is just always awesome, but then there are mangos and black beans and corn.

Oh yeah and the fried egg and the Queso fresco (obsessed!). Plus, I love the soggy baked chips on the bottom and then the crunchy baked chips on top with with the warm cheese?


It’s a flavor AND texture winner for sure.

  1. These were great! However, I too got to the end and had tomatoes and lime leftover. I think it would have been better with the tomatoes baked in so the juices could meld with everything else….next time 🙂

  2. I love all your recipes! Made this tonight. Your ingredients call for tomatoes and 1/2 lime, but the instructions do not include them. When do I add the tomatoes and lime? I added at the end, with the toppings.

  3. I was so excited to try these, and I realize corn is in the name, but it’s not in the ingredients list. I’m assuming just a can of corn? Ziplist didn’t pick that up so neither did I. These will have to wait another day 🙂 Thanks!

    1. Oh no! So sorry, karen! Yes, you can use whatever corn you would like you just simply leave it out. No big deal!
      Thanks and I hope you love these!

  4. These are pronouced Chee-la-key-less. This is an interesting take on them and can’t wait to try! My mother made these for us growing up, and it was the first meal she made for my hubby when we first started dating. Its now his favorite meal that she makes. However she makes them in a more traditional way, she cuts corn tortillas into triangles, shallow fries them in a large skillet with a little sliced onion and when they start to get crispy she throws in her special sauce mixes and then covers it with cheese and puts a lid on until the cheese is melted. Oh so good!

    1. Oh my gosh, Melissa! Wow, those sound amazing. Were can I get this recipe!? You think your mom will share that special sauce? HAHA!
      You are very lucky!!

      Thanks so much Melissa!

  5. I always think that a colourful dish is a good healthy one. Love this idea and the cute little pans!
