"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

This is Uncle Chalo' s favorite breakfast. I also have a simple recipe for this. But I made this the other day and Emilio tried it and loved it too. Try it this way: Plate the chilaquiles, top with a sunny side or over easy egg and garnish with cilantro, red onion and cheese. That is the way I love to eat it.
Maybe a little spicy, but try it anyways.
Muy Bueno!!!
