Chilaquiles with Turkey Chorizo
and curtido / sour cream
Made in just one pan with minimal prep, chilaquiles are a great addition to the weeknight meal rotation. Tortillas are chopped, fried in a bit of oil, and folded in at the end of cooking to create a rustic dish that is hearty and full of flavor.
Smarts: We featured another chilaquiles in the past so check out that version if you want ideas for additional variations and toppings.

- Curtido Pickled Cabbage (leftover from Tuesday) - ~2 cups
- Tortillas - Chop tortillas into 2” / 5 cm pieces. (Note: If time allows, leave tortillas uncovered at room temperature for a few hours and up to a day. They will hold up better during cooking if they are a bit stale.) (Can be done 1 day ahead)

- Bell peppers / Onions - Prep as directed and combine. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
- Season turkey - Stir spice mix into turkey. (Can be done up to 2 days ahead)
- Limes - Slice limes into wedges.
- Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add first part of oil and then chopped tortillas. Cook tortillas, stirring occasionally, until lightly toasted, 5 to 6 minutes. Set aside.
- Return skillet to stovetop and increase to medium-high heat. Add second part of oil and then bell peppers and onions. Saute until vegetables are tender, 4 to 5 minutes.
- Add turkey and saute, breaking it apart, until cooked through, 5 to 6 minutes more.
- Pour enchilada sauce and stock over turkey and stir to combine. Simmer for 1 minute to reduce slightly.
- Add tortillas back to pan and stir until tortillas are warmed through and coated in sauce.
- Divide chilaquiles between serving bowls and top with sour cream and curtido (leftover from this recipe). Serve with lime wedges for squeezing over top. Enjoy!
