For the Chicken:

  • 1 peeled yellow onion sliced into wedges
  • 8 garlic cloves
  • 2 jalapeños sliced in half seeds removed
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of cumin
  • 1 teaspoon of dry oregano
  • 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 4 cups of chicken stock
  • Kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste

For the Breakfast Chilaquiles:

  • 11 ounce bag of corn tortilla chips
  • 1 15- ounce can of heated refried pinto beans
  • 2 cups of shredded Chihuahua cheese
  • 1 cup of crumbled cotija cheese
  • 6 fried eggs to desired doneness
  • 1 peeled and pitted sliced avocado
  • ¼ cup of chopped cilantro
  • ¼ cup of sliced green onions
  • 1 sliced red pepper for garnish
  • Kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 375°
  • Chicken: Coat the tomatillos, tomatoes, onions, garlic, and jalapenos in 2 tablespoons of olive oil and spread them out on a sheet tray lined with parchment paper and roast in the oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until there is a light char on the vegetables.
  • Remove the ingredients and transfer them to a blender along with the cumin, oregano, salt and pepper, and puree until smooth. Set aside.
  • Next, season the chicken breasts on both sides with salt and pepper. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large dutch oven pot until it begins to lightly smoke and add in the chicken breasts and brown on both sides.
  • Pour the blended tomatillo mixture over top of the chicken along with the chicken stock, salt and pepper and cook over low heat for 2 to 3 hours. Shred the chicken once it becomes easy to pull apart and keep warm.
  • To Make: Place the tortilla chips on a large sheet tray or divide it between 2 cast iron skillets and mix in the slow cooked shredded chicken until the tortilla chips are coated.
