BBQ Chicken Chilaquiles

When you think of healthy food, BBQ chicken chilaquiles probably don’t come to mind. This recipe uses homemade BBQ sauce, baked tortilla chips, and fresh vegetables to turn a typically high-fat, high-sugar meal into a healthy breakfast or dinner option.


BBQ Chicken Chilaquiles


  • 4 large tortillas ( I use Joseph’s brand)
  • 1 Tbls. Oil
  • 1 ½ cups homemade BBQ sauce
  • 2 cups shredded chicken
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup reduced fat cheddar cheese
  • ¾ cup diced cherry tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 avocado, sliced


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
  2. Slice tortillas into triangles and drizzle with olive oil. Toss to coat. Arrange tortillas on a greased cooking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes until crispy, turning half way.
  3. Spread half of the BBQ sauce in a cast iron skillet, or other oven safe skillet. Spread half of the tortilla chips over the sauce. Add half the shredded chicken and half the cheddar cheese on top.
  4. Spread remaining chips over the chicken and cheese layer. Top with remaining sauce, chicken, and cheese. Place in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly.
  5. While the chilaquiles are baking, spray a pan with cooking spray and prepare eggs sunny side up. Chop vegetables.
  6. Remove the chilaquiles from the oven. Top with eggs, cherry tomatoes, cilantro, and avocado. Serve warm.
