(Serves 4)

For the Dough

  • 4 cups of corn flour,

  • Water

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 tablespoon of butter

For the Chilaquiles

  • 300 grams of Oaxaca cheese, grated, for the filling

  • 600gr of Green Salsa or your favorite salsa - inspiration here

  • Shredded chicken breast, to accompany

  • Onion, to accompany

  • Cream, to accompany

  • Cotija or Fresco cheese, to accompany


  1. For the dough, pour the corn flour into a bowl and add the water little by little until you have a homogeneous dough, then add the salt and butter and continue kneading until it is perfectly incorporated. Reserve.

  2. With your hands, form a ball of approximately 50 grams. Use a plastic bag cut in half on the tortilla press to make it easier to handle the dough.

  3. Place the ball of dough and press until it forms a tortilla, add cheese inside the tortilla and close it, forming a triangle with the dough with the help of the plastic bag, so that it does not fall apart. Repeat the process until you have enough chilaquiles and set aside.

  4. In a frying pan over medium heat, heat the oil and fry the chilaquiles; Take care that they do not stick to each other. Place on absorbent paper towels to remove excess fat and set aside.

  5. In a saucepan over medium heat, pour 1 tablespoon of oil and sauté the sauce of your election, season with salt and pepper. Let it cook for 10 minutes until it has a semi-thick consistency.

  6. Serve the chilaquiles bathed in green sauce, served with chicken, onion, cream, and cotija/fresco cheese.
