Chilaquiles And Guacamole: Say, Make And Eat This Mexican Dish With Chef Elia Herrera

Chilaquiles and guacamole is the brunch dish you need in your life.

Sure, guacamole and chips will hit the spot on any given day, but we get a sense that you're ready to take it to the next level.

To be fair, nothing involving guacamole could really ever be wrong. But if you've yet to try chilaquiles and guacamole, you've been done a serious disservice.

Fortunately, executive chef Elia Herrera, from Los Colibris, an upscale Mexican restaurant in Toronto, is here to share her skills and technique.

In the embedded videos, Herrera coaches us through how to pronounce "chilaquiles and guacamole," and walks us through how to make the popular Mexican brunch dish.

According to Herrera, the spice in the dish will give you the kick in the pants you need on a hungover Sunday.

Since you're already drooling on the keyboard, watch Herrera show you step-by-step how to make this down-home Mexican brunch dish.

Start with fried corn tortilla chips and a spicy tomato and pepper-based sauce cooked down with cumin and garlic, and top it off with fresh guacamole made from ripe avocados.

"Pretty much what I'm doing here at Los Colibris is bringing the recipes from my grandmother and my mother in Mexico here to Canada and sharing with you. It makes me feel really proud," she says.
