Smoked Sausage Chilaquiles
Smoked Sausage Chilaquiles is a super tasty, lighter way to eat some of your favorite Mexican flavors for breakfast!
- 5 6 inch corn tortillas, (I used Mission Extra Thin Yellow Corn tortillas)
- 8 oz turkey smoked sausage, chopped (I used Hillshire Farm)
- 3 cups chunky salsa
- 1 cup reduced sodium fat free chicken broth
- 4 oz 50% reduced fat sharp cheddar, shredded (I used Cabot)
- 1 medium avocado, cut into cubes (to keep these from browning you can toss them in a bit of lime juice)
- 6 lime wedges
- Optional: chopped cilantro for garnish
Pre-heat your oven to 350. Cut your tortillas into strips (mine were about 1” by 3” strips). Spread the tortilla strips onto a large baking sheet and lightly mist with cooking spray. Bake for 13-15 minutes until crisp. Set aside.
Mist a large skillet with cooking spray and bring over medium heat and add the chopped sausage. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes until the sausage pieces are a bit browned. Remove sausage to a side plate.
Keep the skillet over medium heat and add the salsa. Bring to a simmer. Add the broth and stir together. Return to a simmer and simmer uncovered for 2 minutes. Add the browned sausage pieces and stir together. Add the baked tortilla strips and stir until well combined. Return to a simmer and simmer uncovered for about 3 minutes until the tortillas soften and the mixture thickens slightly.
Remove from heat and sprinkle with the shredded cheddar while the mixture is still hot Top with the chopped avocado and cilantro if using. Serve with a lime wedge to squeeze over top.
