PALEO-FRIENDLY CHILAQUILES

Paleo-Friendly-Chilaquiles

In case you missed it, Siete Foods launched 3 flavors of paleo-friendly tortilla chips this month and let’s just say Mexican food is officially changed forever. I’ve known about the launch of these chips for several months, but had to keep my mouth shut, which let me tell you, was really, really hard. As far as I know there are no other paleo-friendly tortilla chips on the market, so these are LONG overdue. They come in Nacho, Lime and Sea Salt and each one is spectacular.

One of my all-time favorite dishes that uses tortilla chips is Chilaquiles, but until now, I had to settle for corn chips. When these chips arrived at my doorstep I knew the very first recipe I had to make was Paleo-Friendly Chilaquiles!

This recipe makes two portions, but you will absolutely have leftover red chili sauce. I suggest making more than one batch of these or use them for anything else you’d like… Enchiladas with Siete’s grain-free tortillas perhaps?!

One more note is that this recipe does not contain cheese, which is traditional for this dish. I don’t eat dairy and find that the guacamole is more than enough to give these the creaminess they need, but if cheese works for you, feel free to add it!
