  • Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Brush the corn tortillas triangles with olive oil (use 2 Tbsp or as much as needed) and place on a cookie sheet in a single layer. Sprinkle with kosher salt.
  • Bake for about 12 to 15 minutes or until slightly brown and crispy. Set aside
  • Meanwhile, add the 2 cups of Salsa Verde in a medium pan and simmer until hot.
  • Add the crispy tortilla chips to the pan with the Salsa Verde and fold until all of the tortillas are covered.
  • Serve immediately while the tortillas are crispy
  • Top with crumbled queso fresco and drizzle some Mexican crema or my Cilantro Lime Rancho Crema
  • Serve with fried eggs (optional) and refried beans.


  • You can skip the baking process and fry the tortillas in hot oil until evenly crispy. Start with one cup of hot oil. 
  • You can make the Tomatillo Sauce ahead of time to save time for weeknight dinners.
  • Using rotisserie chicken will save additional time as well!
