Chilaquilles
Serves 6
I was fortunate to learn this fantastic peasant style Mexican dish from my sister who lived in the heart of Mexico City, Mexico for 20 years and learned this dish from her cook and housekeeper. It's simple and delicious and can, like lasagna, be cooked, cut in portions, frozen and re-heated at a later date. Always a crowd pleaser!!
