Vegetarian Chilaquiles

by Darcie

I can’t say this is an authentic chilaquiles recipe, but I can say it’s easy and quick to make and delicious. The ingredients are totally customizable. You can use any cheese, salsa, chips, beans (or sub chorizo!) that you like. Same with the toppings. I didn’t have any cilantro when I made this, but I think that would take it up a notch!

As with all of my recipes, the goal is a yummy, healthy, satisfying meal that doesn’t require spending an hour in the kitchen.

I hope you love my version of chilaquiles! If you have a favorite recipe for chilaquiles, I’d love to hear!


1/4 cup salsa (I used a medium salsa from Trader Joe’s)

1/4 cup chicken broth

1/3 cup black beans, mashed

2 handfuls tortilla chips (I used Trader Joe’s quinoa and black bean – they are SO good)

1 egg

1/3-1/2 cup shredded pepper jack cheese

1/4 avocado

sour cream (can sub Greek yogurt)


Serves 1 (fairly large portion)


Turn on burner to medium-low heat. Add salsa and chicken broth. Once hot, add black beans and chips (crumbling them as you add them). Mix together.

salsa and chipsMake a space in the center of the pan and crack the egg. Cover the pan to allow the egg to set. I like my egg to be runny so I typically move the white of the egg around to help it to cook.

Once it’s almost set, I add the cheese and cover again to help the cheese to melt.
