From last night's leftovers springs a spectacular weekend brunch. One of my favorite dishes...Chilaquiles.
Last night Debbie and I split an order of James Special (Chile verde over rice) From Sal's. We ate almost all of it.
What I had left over:
About 2 or 3 ounces of James Special
3 fresh corn tortillas
some tortilla chips
Late this morning I chopped up the tortillas and tossed them in a skillet with about 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil.
I fried the tortillas until slightly brown, then added a handfull of the leftover chips.
I then added about a half cup of Trader Joe's Enchilada Sauce ( Handy because it comes in a glass bottle, so you can use a little and keep the rest in the fridge for later).
While the tortilla mixture simmered and thickened, I scrambled a few eggs. (A fried egg is the preferred topping but in a marriage, you have to compromise)
I topped the chilaquiles and eggs with the leftover chile verde and rice, Jalapeños and salsa.
I think of this meal as a reward for restraining myself at last night's dinner.
