There is one very popular dish there called Chilaquiles (pronounced “chee-lah-KEE-lays”) . This is a traditional dish found throughout Mexico. At its most basic, chilaquiles consists of fried tortilla strips simmered in red or green salsa or mole to soften the strips. This dish is great for using up leftovers because stale (or store-bought) tortillas can be used. It’s often served with a side of refried beans. Some popular chilaquiles ingredients include fried or scrambled eggs, cheese, chiles, sour cream, raw onions, cilantro or chorizo. Central Mexico prefers crisp tortilla chips, so rather than simmering them in salsa, the salsa is poured onto the chips right before serving.
