This is my first blog ,so take it easy! I am constantly thinking about food. Either its the food that Im eating or the food that I just ate, or the food that i'm going to eat.
The conversation might start off as a posit of what might you order , or want to eat if you were on death row. For me the answer is almost always "Chilaquiles" or " Chilaqs" . Don't be led astray by the haters that say Cilaqs are just nachos. That's like saying a sauce is just soup.
Chilaquiles are a genre of dishes that have , as their DNA, fried corn tortilla chips, sauteed onions and chiles, a sauce or salsa and then , typically cheese . That being said, this is the femme fatal without her clothes on. Sure even a naked lady can look enticing,,,,,but the kicker are those thing that adorn her
How does one make the chips? What brand of tortillas? Might you fry them then crisp them further in the oven,,,,or dry them in the oven and then fry them?
What kind of onion? Sweet Spanish? White? Shallots? Super sweet Mayan or Visalia?
What kind chiles? Anaheim/Hatch? Roasted or not? Guajillo, Ancho dried or Fresh roasted Poblano?...... This is not to confuse or discourage ,but rather widen your horizon of CHILICIOUS CHILAQ CHOICES.............OK first blog down now ," it's time to eat".
