SWEET POTATO CHORIZO CHILAQUILES WITH WHOLE30 SOUR CREAM
Here in Southern California, chilaquiles, or a version of it, can be found at almost every breakfast or brunch spot and are a hearty and savory option for when you want a departure from typical sweet breakfast fare. If you aren't familiar with this traditional Mexican dish (you can thank us later), it usually consists of fried tortilla strips bathed in a red or green salsa, topped with cheese. While our Whole30 version looks a bit different with no dairy, grains, or sugar, it is every bit as flavorful and filling! Get ready to wow your tastebuds with this unique palate pleaser. We guarantee it'll become a go-to dish on or off round.
