Chilaquiles Frittata Skillet (Gluten Free & Low Carb)

This post contains affiliate links.


Inspired by my beloved Mexican cuisine, and my all time favorite Mexican breakfast recipe I introduce you to this simple and delicious Chilaquiles Frittata Skillet that will delight your taste buds in such a convenient and easy way!


The ingredients for this recipe are super basic; eggs, cheese, green salsa and corn tortillas, of course. And even though we are using regular (non-GMO) corn tortillas this is still a low carb recipe, each slice has only 7.5 grams of total carbs. A pretty decent amount, and still indulgent!



Chilaquiles are such a classic when it comes to breakfast in Mexico, every place offer them in so many variations of sauces; green, red, mole, chipotle, even chile pasilla... the ideas are endless and all delicious! In this occasion we are sticking to a classic and my personal favorite. Salsa verde.



I used Siete Food Enchilada Sauce but you are free to use your favorite one. Green salsa is basically just made from tomatillos, cilantro, green onion and white vinegar. I actually have a recipe on the blog! One of the first ever recipes I posted, click here for my green salsa recipe.



The way of making this simple frittata is another amazing thing about the recipe. Is basically just mix, pour and bake. That's it! The full instructions will be below along with the nutritional information.

If you are meal prepping this is such a wonderful recipe to make! Easy and practically mess free. Also fail proof! There's nothing like a heart-warming and nourishing recipe that it's easy as well, right?
