Do you know how to prove triangles similar using only congruent angles?

Correct. Using vertical angles, we can do exactly that.

By using the theorem: "Vertical angles are congruent." we can show that the vertical angles shown in the figure are congruent. Then we have two angles of one triangle congruent to two angles of the other triangle, and by AA Similarity, we prove the two triangles are similar.
