If you’re a fan of Mexican cuisine, this Chicken Chilaquiles dish just might become a new favorite…. The combination of crispy tortilla chips and tangy verde sauce with tender, juicy chicken and creamy queso fresco is a match made in heaven. Not only is this recipe beyond tasty, but it’s also incredibly easy to make, making it a perfect meal for a quick breakfast or brunch.

To make the recipe even more satisfying, add a fried or over-easy egg on top. Plus, we love that this dish is highly customizable, allowing you to experiment with different types of cheese and meat or even add a few jalapeños for a spicy kick.
