Chilaquiles

I like to top my chilaquiles with a fried egg and bacon for a spicy breakfast.

Serves 2

vegetable oil, for frying
4 small corn tortillas, cut in 1.25″ strips
1/2 cup of salsa
fried egg, optional
bacon, cooked and chopped, optional
queso fresca for sprinkling, optional

Fill pan with vegetable oil 1″ high. Bring oil temperature up to 350F/ 175C. Fry corn tortillas, working in batches if necessary. Remove to paper towels.
Warm salsa. Add fried corn strips. Allow to slightly soften.
Top with fried egg and cheese (optional).
Serve.

Great with refried beans and cilantro cream sauce.

Roasted Tomato Salsa

Easy and so much better than the stuff you buy from the store.

1 pound/ 450 g fresh tomatoes, sliced in half
1 red onion, quartered
2 cloves of garlic
2 green chili peppers
⅓ cup cilantro, chopped
juice from ½ a lime
salt

Preheat broiler. Place tomatoes, onion, garlic, and peppers on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt. Broil until slightly charred.

Place in a food processor with cilantro, lime juice, and another sprinkle of salt. Puree. Serve.

Great with chilaquiles.
