Chilaquiles with The Real Coconut Tortilla Chips

This gluten free spin on Chilaquiles is absolutely delicious! We used the Instant Pot to quickly cook the salsa verde sauce, and adding nutritional benefits to this dish.

Have you heard about lectins? Lectins are proteins that bind to carbohydrates. All fruits and vegetables contain at least some lectins and are found in grains, legumes, many flowering plants, and dairy. Supporters claim that low-lectin diets reduce inflammation and improve digestion.

The Instant Pot is a great way to cook foods that contain lectins in them like tomatillos. Plant lectins can be effectively broken down when cooked in a pressure cooker. However, it is recommend to avoid using slow cookers, as they actually increase lectin content due to the low temperature used.

We paired our salsa verde with our The Real Coconut Coconut Flour Original Tortilla Chips and Kitehill’s vegan Ricotta made from almond milk. This is a great brunch or breakfast option to make for a group of friends. We hope you enjoy it!
