Preheat oven to 350°.

Pulse pork in a food processor until nearly a paste. Heat oil in a sauté pan over medium; add pork, paprika, garlic, oregano, coriander, and cumin. Crush chorizo with a potato masher until cooked through, 35 minutes.

Purée salsa, chipotle, and broth in food processor; add to chorizo and simmer until thick, 15 minutes. Stir in beans and chopped cilantro; season with salt and pepper.

Layer one-third chips in a 2-quart casserole dish; top with one-third each chorizo mixture and both cheeses. Repeat layering two more times. Bake chilaquiles until hot and cheese melts, 15 minutes.

Top chilaquiles with radishes and garnish with cilantro sprigs.


Crushing the pulsed pork with a potato masher will keep it from forming large pieces while cooking.


Add the puréed salsa mixture right to the pan with the chorizo — its flavor will intensify as it simmers.
