Christmas Chilaquiles



I was supposed to make Christmas Chilaquiles and post for Christmas brunch, but that didn’t happen. Here it is for New years brunch! Start your year off on the right foot by making this, because trust me it will be a PARTAAYY in your mouth. This would be a fun DIY brunch station, you can lay out all the ingredients and people can make their own way.



I know you are probably intimidated by how long the ingredients list looks, but please trust me when I say it... it is easy! Also you will have a lot of sauce leftover that you can use on various dishes! Try my wet burrito with either sauces, or boom boom enchiladas. You can freeze the sauces as well. If you are serving this to a large crowd, I would suggest using tortilla chips to make your life easier.


Wishing you all a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR! Thank you so much for supporting this little blog of mine, truly truly appreciate it. Lets make 2020 the best year yet!!!


And as always.. Stay happy, stay hungry!
