Mexican Chilaquiles
Serves 8
This truly authentic Mexican pheasant style dish was taught to my sister (who lived in Mexico City for many years) by her housekeeper and cook. Choose thick style tortilla chips for this dish so that they don't break down while cooking. It's also not necessary to use fresh chips. Stale ones will do nicely too.
