Today I am sharing a recipe for Chilaquiles Verde from Good Food For Good founder Richa Gupta. This dish is completely vegan and delicious!
Good Food for Good is a Toronto-based vegan enterprise, committed to making a difference one meal at a time.

Chilaquiles is a traditional Mexican dish of fried tortillas smothered in green or red salsa until tender. It is finger licking good! Try it and you will be making it every day! Traditionally it is served with fried eggs for breakfast, black beans or shredded chicken. I served my Chilaquiles verde with black bean salsa and sometimes just with a cilantro garnish. This can be made with Ancho Chile Sauce for Enchiladas as well as spicy Chile de arbol sauce for Tacos. All our sauces have more than ½ lb of fresh, whole vegetables, so even if you are just eating chilaquiles by itself (I do that a lot) you are getting a ton of good vegetables too!
1 jar (250 ml) GOOD FOOD FOR GOOD Tomatillo Sauce for Enchiladas
200g tortilla chips, try the unsalted version.
1/2 cup Black beans
1/2 cup Chopped tomato
¼ cup Chopped cilantro
2 tbsp Pickled jalapenos
Salt to taste for salsa
Lime to taste for salsa
(Optional) 1/8 cup Chopped cilantro
- Warm up the sauce in a pan (~3 minutes).
- While sauce is warming up make the salsa: mix black beans, tomato, cilantro and jalapeños, season with salt and lime and set aside.
- In a non-stick pan add the chips and then slowly start adding the sauce, cook chips in the sauce, making sure they are all well coated till chips turn soft.
- Transfer to a plate and top it up with salsa.
