Chilaquiles Casserole

Chilaquiles Casserole

Growing up I would be amazed how effortlessly my mom could feed a crowd.  She would swiftly move from task to task dicing, stirring or seasoning, she made it all seem effortlessly.  The table was set no dirty dishes in sight and the house smelled heavenly.

At the table you would always find freshly made salsa, plenty of queso fresco and stacks of homemade flour tortillas.  Piping cups of coffee were ready to be sweetened, an agua frecsa for the kids and a big charola (pan) of chilaquiles.  Everyone loved her chilaquiles and she always made sure to make a double batch.

Crispy tortillas smothered in a tomatillo sauce and heavily topped with cheese, they were the ultimate brunch fare. 

I am the complete opposite of my mami.  I love having famila y amigos over for a festive brunch, but this gal does not move swiftly from task to task.  This is why I prep much of my brunch items the evening before my event.

But like mother, like daughter you will find freshly made salsa, plenty of queso and stacks of homemade tortillas at my table also. I’ve learned not to mess with a good thing.

Pitchers of aguas frescas for the kids, pitchers of margaritas for the adults and a double pan of my chilaquiles casserole.

Crispy tortillas smothered in a tomatillo sauce, swimming in egg and heavily topped with cheese, they are the ultimate brunch fare. 

My mami loves them and that folks it the ultimate compliment!

I’ve teamed up with Chinet to Celebrate Summer of Baking!  I had the opportunity to test out their new disposable baking pans, which lets you take your food from oven to table to freezer to microwave, all in one attractive, non-stick pan.  And this gal loves to prep ahead, so these babies fit perfectly into my kitchen and no clean up! Sweet!

And to celebrate Chinet is giving away a complete set to you my dear readers to help you spend less time in the kitchen and spend more time enjoying Summer.

And because it’s from the Chinet brand, strength and stability are built in. Bakeware is designed to be sturdy and dependable no matter what you’ve got cooked up.
