Tortilla chips bathed in salsas from green to red, mole to Swiss, chilaquiles are a versatile and well-known dish here in the capital. Typically eaten for breakfast, their popularity has soared to the level that you can now find them at nearly any hour, from street stalls to high-end restaurants. Here we recommend a variety of spots that are sure to satisfy any craving.
A popular place, they serve their chilaquiles with chicken, arrachera, cecina, or cochinita pibil, among others, with a choice of classic green or red salsa, or a delicious and authentic avocado salsa. Vegan chilaquiles are also available.
