This is Mom’s Chilaquiles Casserole recipe. 

It’s a recipe that she’s been making since the 60’s or 70’s. It comes from Lawry’s California Kitchen. This is a vegetarian version, but you could easily add shredded chicken or cooked beef for a heartier entree.

I hope you enjoy this Chilaquiles casserole recipe.

  1. I’m a big fan of chilaquiles and I’m glad you posted this recipe. It looks very similar to the one I had in a Mexican restaurant once. I like that you used Lawry’s taco seasoning and green chiles for extra flavor. I can’t wait to make this casserole at home.
