Keto Chilaquiles Verdes (Gluten Free)

Chilaquiles might be one of my favorite Mexican dishes ever! It's something about the comfort of the sauce soking those tortillas and paired with some good sunny side eggs, once you pop the yolk it creates a Mexican masterpiece of flavors!

I have been all about easy and simply meals lately; the Mexican inspo is just part of my blood so in today's recipe I'm sharing these amazing and delicious chilaquiles using some pork rinds, another food that has been on repeat lately!

For breakfast or not this is a great recipe to enjoy at any time! I paired these chilaquiles with some eggs but you can also have these with chicken, beef, carne al pastor... well, the ideas are always endless!

Like any other traditional Mexican food, these chilaquiles are paired with a good salsa, green is my favorite choice, and it makes the pork rinds softer, these are also called Chicharrón en Salsa Verde. A kind of stew that it's also used for burritos actually!

This is a great low carb, keto and paleo friendly meal, for a paleo version just make sure to skip the cheese, or you can use a dairy free alternative. It's still going to be so legit anyways, I think that the key here is in the sauce and the protein of choice as the topping.

Okay, here's what you'll need for this recipe, let's gather up the ingredients!

  • Pork Rinds

  • Green Salsa

  • Cheese

  • Eggs

  • Real Salt

  • Black pepper

Corn tortillas are the ones that are typically used for this recipe, still gluten free but I wanted to share this keto friendly recipe for all my Mexican food lovers out there, plus, personally I'm a huge fan of pork rinds.
