My dad loves this version so much, that when father’s day or his birthday come around, we know we have to make some for him to enjoy. He would also say that they are a versatile dish. For example, he can have 3 or 4 for dinner on the first day. Then, the following day he would re-heat two chilaquilas, and serve with two over-easy fried eggs, all topped with this versatile tomato sauce.
The tomato sauce, we prepare more often than the chilaquilas themselves. I love to have a jar of this plain no-fat tomato sauce in the fridge to serve with pasta, with eggs for breakfast, or to improve a bland soup.
All around, it’s a family favorite. Just a few days ago, we celebrated my dad’s birthday. We had a very Guatemalan spread: chilaquilas and fried black beans, guacamole and tostadas. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do!
