Chipotle Chilaquiles

Chipotle Chilaquiles (Adapted from Food and Wine)

28 ounce can fire-roasted whole tomatoes, drained and 1/2 cup liquid reserved
2 individual chipotles in adobo
1 1/2 tablespoons canola oil
1 cup thinly sliced onion, divided
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
salt to taste
8 ounces tortilla chips
1 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken
1 ounce fresh grated Asiago cheese
1/3 cup sour cream
1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro

In a food processor or blender, add tomatoes, reserved 1/2 cup liquid and chipotles - process until almost smooth.

In a large skillet, add oil and heat over medium high. Stir in about two-thirds of the onion - cook until browned around the edges, about 6 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Pour in the tomato puree - simmer, stirring often, until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the stock - bring to a boil and cook until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes. Season to taste with salt and remove from the heat.

Add the tortilla chips to the sauce and gently stir to coat them well. Top with the remaining onion, the shredded chicken and the Asiago cheese. Evenly dollop the sour cream over the chilaquiles and sprinkle with cilantro to serve.

Makes 4 servings.

  1. Wow that looks amazing!

  2. That looks really yummy.I just printed to try it. I am not a huge fan of tortilla chips but I am thinking this would be really good over some rice too.

  3. Thanks Dianne!
