This is Chilaquiles
Chilaquiles are one of the dishes that come to mind when I think of real authentic Mexican food. If you are not in Mexico and you find a Mexican restaurant selling this dish, then you know it’s the real deal (not the type of place that sells HARD shelled tacos-what is that all about?!). Chilaquiles are lightly fried strips of tortilla which have a red or green salsa poured on them. The dish is then topped with avocado, sliced onion, sour cream and cheese. It is most commonly also served with fried eggs or chicken, though a variety of toppings are often available (see picture above). The spiciness of the salsa depends place to place so always ask before whether the red or green is spicier. This is generally a breakfast dish, though delicious at any time of day and an excellent hangover cure!
