Max and Eli Sussman's Chilaquiles with Tomatillo Salsa

Serious Eats Kate Williams Post a comment

Any of the meals in the "Lazy Brunch" chapter would be excellent contenders for a home-cooked hangover helper, but perhaps the most appropriate is Max and Eli Sussman's recipe for five-minute Chilaquiles with Tomatillo Salsa. Simply a pile of chips smothered in warmed salsa, leftover chicken, eggs, and cheese, the dish isn't (I would say) true chilaquiles, but it certainly fills that greasy, rich void when the most you can handle in the morning is to fry an egg.

Quick Chile Verde

Serious Eats Blake Royer 8 comments

The secret to this quick, easy weeknight chile verde recipe is using ground pork instead of pork shoulder. It comes together in under an hour. Use the broiler to char the tomatillos and roast the garlic to create the sweet, smokey base. More

Note: You can use store-bought salsa verde if you'd like. Masa harina is dehydrated corn meal treated with lime. It can be found in most Latin grocers or large supermarkets. I use the Maseca brand, which is sold near the... More

Dinner Tonight: Grilled Tuna with Red Tomatillo Sauce

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 2 comments

The tomatillos, onion, and garlic cloves are roasted and then blended with the rest of the sauce ingredients. Then all you have to do is grill the tuna steaks. Be sure not to overcook them. Much like regular steaks, it seems like a crime to cook them past medium rare. More

Dinner Tonight: Enchiladas Suizas

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 11 comments

I am astonished I haven't written about this recipe before. It's probably my favorite enchilada variation—it's comforting, soothing, and wildly addictive. For help I turned to Rick Bayless's Fiesta at Rick's (one of our favorite cookbooks of 2010) and I'm really glad I did. He replaces the normal shredded chicken with roasted vegetables. More

Dinner Tonight: Chicken with Roasted Peppers and Salsa Verde

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 6 comments

One of my favorite meals in the world is Leo Maya's Chicken with Green Sauce, a recipe Mario Batali shared with Serious Eaters a few years ago. It's simple, direct, and aggressive. Tomatillos are blended up with lime juice, cilantro, and serranos, then poured into a large pot with a chicken thighs. It's a perfect dish for those tired of bland chicken dishes. More

Cook the Book: Chilaquiles Verdes

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 3 comments

Chilaquiles are, hands down, my favorite Mexican breakfast dish. Fried corn tortillas soaked in red or green salsa, topped with some cheese and, sometimes, a fried egg, braised chicken, or pork—what's not to love? Chilaquiles are breakfast nachos! This recipe... More

Grilling: Tomatillo Salsa

Serious Eats Joshua Bousel 14 comments

With the amount of Mexican and Tex-Mex dishes I've served up here, it should come as no surprise that Cinco de Mayo is probably my favorite cooking holiday. I start trying out party menu items weeks in advance, taking every... More

Dinner Tonight: Pork Tacos with Poblano and Tomatillo Salsa

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 5 comments

It's funny how a missing ingredient can lead to a whole new dinner. The original idea was to remake the poblano tacos I had so loved from last summer. It's a relatively easy recipe, but I was missing something, and... More
