A la cartridge: Rayman's Legendary Chilaquiles

Food is good. Videogames are good. Food inspired by videogames is doubleplusgood. It's simple science. Science and art. The third episode of Steven Hansen's À la cartridge is inspired by Rayman Legends. In my quest to become the Alton Brown of videogames, will I become videogames' Guy Fieri?

Last week we went quintessential Americana with the Killer is Dead Mondo Burger. Now, we're heading south of the US border, to Mexico, to duck those murder raps and eat some Legendary Chilaquiles. Rayman Legends is a great couch co-op game and chilaquiles is a chill-and-easy dish that serves plenty.

Feel free to stir some scrambled eggs in as well. Go nuts. It's in the spirit of Rayman. I almost added candy eyeballs to everything.

Rayman's Legendary Chilaquiles


  • Canned chipotle peppers
  • 2-3 tomatoes
  • Garlic
  • Tortillas (or store bought chips, tostadas)
  • Chicken
  • Queso fresco
  • Mozarella
  • Cilantro
  • White onion


Blend the following: 2-3 chipotle peppers, 1 cup water, several cloves of garlic, salt, 2-3 tomatoes. Adjust for taste and spiciness.

Place chopped white onions on pan with some oil. Let cook a few minutes. Add salt/pepper seasoned chicken breasts to pan. Cook on medium high for about a minute on each side, then add the previously made sauce to the pan. Cover and set burner to low. Let cook for 10-20 minutes.

Shred chicken with a fork, or cut into small chunks with a knife. Add tortilla chips. Bonus point if you fry some corn tortillas and make your own. Top with a mix of queso fresco and mozarella, cover and let melt. Finish with some cilantro.

Spiel was mightily expensive. Holy shit... Good thing I didn't bring more money with me, too. Saw enough stuff I'd love to own.

Trialling PS Now - review to come later - has reminded me of a piece of little-reported PS3 news. Owners of hacked PS3s could turn any PS2 game into a 'Classics' title and run them on a bog-standard PS3 with few issues.

I caught a reflective mumbling about MGSV's open structure and how it doesn't sit well with me, to be published whenever I litter it with images.

I cast my little worm in to the pond for a topic to try to make a blog about today. I fish fish fish but nothing bites bites bites.

I cracked and bought Final Fantasy Dimensions on Android last night. Half off sounded like just the right price, though I wish this came out on 3DS or even the Vita but at least it gives me something to do on the porcelain throne!

Those N64-era THQ wrestling games have actually held up really well over the years. Take that, nostalgia!

Heading off to Spiel in a bit. A whole lot of games there, just of the cardboard variety. I love me some board games.

Finally finished The Witcher 3. Definitely one of the best games I've played in my 30 years or so of gaming. Now onward to Ground Zeroes/Phantom Pain.

MGS Online Day 3. I have 3 character up to level 10 now, one in each class. They're all pretty handy, but I do miss the scout's mark speed the most on other classes.

The SW: Battlefront is pretty and has great sound design, but the gameplay is so shallow and has seemingly no depth! If the full game is like this I will be disappointed.

Dear Playboy: Love your video game coverage, but how about you start making some topless unboxing videos? Seeing someone unwrap a copy of Call of Duty is boring. Seeing a topless Playmate unwrap a copy of anything is awesome!
