Red Chilaquiles for a Crowd

This Mexican classic is the perfect “go-to” dish, whether for two or a crowd.

Total Cook Time: 35 Min

Servings: 6-8


3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 large red onion, diced
1 28 ounce can Las Palmas® Red Enchilada Sauce
2 cups chicken stock
8 ounces shredded Colby cheese
12 ounces thick homemade-style tortilla chips
1/2 cup crumbled queso fresco
6 sunny-side-up eggs, for serving (optional)

  • • Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

  • In a large stockpot, heat oil over medium-high. Add about 2/3 of the onion and cook, stirring regularly, until richly browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Add LAS PALMAS® sauce and broth and bring to a rolling boil. Turn off heat and stir in 2/3 of the shredded cheese.

  • Place one layer of chips into a 13x9-inch baking dish and pour half of the sauce, so that all of the chips are coated. Add another layer of chips and pour remaining sauce. Sprinkle with remaining shredded cheese. Lightly cover baking dish with foil, being careful not to let the top of the chips touch the foil.

  • Bake 8 to 10 minutes. When chilaquiles are bubbling, remove from the oven and sprinkle with the remaining onion.

  • Top with queso fresco, cilantro, and sunny side up eggs, if desired.
