Since being in Mexico, chilaquiles has become one of my favourite breakfast/brunch meals.
It is quintessentially comfort food for Mexicans, but you will often see it on breakfast menus around the country, smothered in either verde (green) or roja (red) salsa.
Although chilaquiles may seem quite tricky to make on first glance, it is actually very quick and easy to prepare, hence why I have made it several times since trying it in markets and at restaurants.
Chilaquiles are fried strips of tortilla covered in salsa and then topped with cheese, onion and sour cream. They are usually served with any-style eggs or meat. When making it for breakfast, I usually accompany it with a fried egg (although I've been know to polish off the chicken ones on occasion when eating them out).
