I have been making this recipe for years and LOVE it. It's so easy and turns out exactly like it looks. The sauce brings a hint of spice which we love. But overall it's so quick to make, very filling, and of course healthy. Excellent recipe.

A traditional Mexican breakfast favorite, chilaquiles (chee-lah-KEE-lays) is a sauté of day-old tortilla strips, fresh tomato sauce, cream, and cheese. This hearty version is baked. Refrigerate leftover chilaquiles in individual containers with tight-fitting lids. To reheat, drizzle with a tablespoon of water, and microwave just until thoroughly heated.
