If you love chilaquiles chances are good that you have wondered whether you can make chilaquiles with flour tortillas. After all, not everyone has corn tortillas or tortilla chips just lying around all the time. In this post, we give you the answers.
Can You Make Chilaquiles With Flour Tortillas?
Chilaquiles are a breakfast classic in Mexico and it’s easy to see why: This dish is thrifty, inexpensive, easy to make, and delicious.
As you probably know, Mexican cuisine is extremely flexible and versatile. Whether it’s pineapple on tacos or tortas stuffed with 10 or 15 ingredients, Mexican food is all about experimentation and mixing-and-matching.
So, it’s natural to wonder if you can make chilaquiles with flour tortillas.
The answer is that you technically can, but if you decide to make chilaquiles with flour tortillas, you should be prepared for a very different experience compared to your typical chilaquiles.
The reason is that four tortillas become frailer than corn tortillas when fried. Plus, flour tortillas are sweeter than corn tortillas.
Very few restaurants in Mexico offer chilaquiles made with flour tortillas, and it doesn’t look like this variation of chilaquiles will take off any time soon. But if you feel like experimenting, try it!
After all, at some point in history pineapple on tacos was unheard of, and now it’s a staple of Mexican food.
