    Chilaquiles are one of my weaknesses. Here are my two current faves:

    Andale Taqueria (Nicollet & 494 in Richfield)Sat and Sun for sure, buy maybe on weekdays-ask for the "taqueria" fresh green salsa/sauce. They always have it, but don't hand it out unless you ask.

    Brasa-- Sunday brunch (maybe Saturday too, but have only gone on Sunday) Has a great tangy, verde sauce.

      I'm partial to Homi's verde version.

        +1 and the owners are so nice.

        Whatever you do, avoid the dreadful ones at Longfellow Grill. Tastes like someone dumped an packet of McCormick's taco seasoning over them. Absolutely inedible.

          My go to place is Pineda Tacos in Plymouth - I prefer the salsa verde version. Don't expect fancy, just good, solid Mexican street food.

            la loma in the midtown global market had a really solid green version...

            I love the chilaquiles at La Loma and Las Teresitas. I think El Nuevo Rodeo also has a pretty good version. I always ask for verde sauce and an egg, over-easy.

              Besides my Mother's I really echo those that suggested those at Homi (agreed at the awesomeness of the owners too) and La Loma in MGM.

                Homi is where I would go. The owners are fantastic and the chilaquiles, sublime.

              Haven't had them yet, but Tilia apparently just added chilaquiles to their brunch menu.

                I don't think they're new--I had chilaquiles there several months ago. I didn't like them very much, actually, but I haven't had that many versions, so I'm not an authority by any stretch. They seemed too "soupy" in my opinion.
