    chilaquiles

    chilaquiles for breakfast, lunch or Dinner - yumm

    Makes 4 servings

    INGREDIENTS

    Tostadas (4 ounces) (YOU CAN SUBSTITUTE: CORN CHIPS or TORTILLA CHIPS)
    1 can tomatoes and 2 serrano chilies, diced
    (substitute: can of Ro*tel Diced Tomatos and Green Chiles - my preference)
    1/2 cup diced Onions - I like the red sweet ones
    1 cup grated sharp cheese (or use some of the grated colby cheddar mix from costco)
    salt and pepper -(not needed if using Ro*Tel substitute)
    1 tablespoon sugar (Optional)
    sour cream & Salsa for garnish

    NOTE: optional to use Rotel tomatoes which are already seasoned, omit peppers.

    DIRECTIONS

    Break up Tostadas / chips
    Boil in sauce pan, for 15 minutes: tomatoes, onion, chilies, salt, pepper and sugar.
    (If using Rotel tomatoes, blend mixture well with chips and meat (canned chicken flaked up ))
    Layer the chips in pie dish and layer with sauce/meat mixture.
    Sprinkle shredded cheese over the mixture.
    bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until the cheese on top gets a small browned patch or two.
    Let cool and divide onto plates.
    Add sour cream / Salsa for garnish

    COOKS’ NOTE:
    Mixture in pie dish should never be more than 1 inch deep.
    GROUND BEEF OR COOKED CHICKEN CAN BE ADDED BEFORE BAKING TO MAKE INTO MAIN DISH.
    American Embassey in Mexico 1971
    Source: “El Cookbook” - Karen Bell

    So what we are saying is open a can of chicken meat, open a can of Ro*tel maters and green chiles
    Line a pan with some Tostadas/chips - add cans ingrediants together with some more Tostadas / chips and dump in pan.
    cover with cheese and bake - your tex-mex casserole needs to be cooled and put on plates add salsa & sour cream to taste.

    Yumm - think of it as a burrito de-constructed

    Chilaquiles.....breakfast of champions. Most of these yahoos are clueless, but if you live down here in the southwest, then any Mexican café has it on the menu.

    Yep, never heard of 'em until moved to AZ - and now that I have a quick and easy it's almost like opening a can of hash and heating it up.

    Using leftover chili verde for the meat and "maters" base and topping with poached eggs is a nice and easy twist - an improvement, I daresay.

    I had this at a cafe in Winnemucca this year with feta cheese. I liked it better than with most sharp cheeses.
