It’s no secret that Most Authentic Mexican food isn’t the healthiest though very delicious! This year I’m making it a great effort to get good foods into our bodies and in the process make Healthier versions of my most beloved Mexican dishes. I know there needs to be a change in the way we eat, at least for my family.
My first task was changing the famous plate of Chilaquiles (CHILL-AH-KILL-ES) for a healthier option without compromising taste! Chilaquiles are fried triangular corn tortillas simmered in sauce and garnished with a variety of ingredients.
I created Chicken Chilaquiles for the family without frying but rather baking the corn tortilla triangles.
I also opted for Classico tomatoes because they give that perfect fresh taste we need to make this dish. My family loves the fresh taste of tomatoes in this dish so it was important not to lose that flavor. It doesn’t hurt that Classico canned tomatoes are 100% all-natural and always packed fresh with no preservatives.
I think we are on the right track for a healthier meal already!

1-Classico Crushed Tomatoes | 2- Classico Heavy Tomato Puree |
