Around The World in 52 Weeks: Chicken with Chilaquiles and Salsa Verde

This week I traveled to Suriname. Though located in South America, Suriname has a large Dutch influence. In fact, Suriname used to be known as Dutch Guiana, as it wasn’t until the ’70s that the country achieved its independence.

This dish is kind of similar to nachos, except that the tortilla chips are actually cooked and not just layered on top of.  This also wasn’t the cheesy mess that I love my nachos to be. Rather there was more emphasis on the salsa.

In the future I would make my own salsa, though Safeway jarred stuff isn’t horrible.

Chicken with Chilaquiles and Salsa Verde

1/2 cup sour cream
2 tbsp milk
1 cup salsa verde
1 cup chicken broth
1 boneless skinless chicken breast
1/8 tsp kosher salt
1/8 tsp crushed black pepper
3 cups coarsely crushed tortilla chips
1/4 cup crumbled feta
2 tbsp chopped cilantro


1. Cook the chicken. I boiled mine in hot water. Once it’s cool shred it.

2. Pour the salsa and broth in a pot. Bring to a boil over moderate high heat. Add chicken, salt, and pepper. Cook for for 2 minutes. Stir in the tortilla chips for about 1 minute, until softened.

3. In a small bowl mix together the sour cream and milk.

4. Pour the sour cream over the chilaquiles and top with feta and cilantro.
