I came across this Time Out article where they asked Latino line cooks where they go for authentic native cuisine. I noticed one of my fav 24-hours spots, Grand Morelos, was mentioned and have always been curious about Chilaquiles. It’s tortilla chips in green chili sauce. You mean like chips and salsa? There has to be more to it since it costs about $6 …and Grand Morelos has pretty cheap prices. I decided to get mine with meat for a couple of dollars extra. So it didn’t look like what I expected. The chips were pretty much soaked in the sauce, leaving it soft and mushy. It turned into the consistency of creamy mashed potatoes. And with the meat, it was like a Mexican Sheperd’s Pie.
