Traditionally, this is a peasant breakfast food made with last night's dinner. Stale chips, leftover chicken, etc.
You're going to love this once you try it! Love at first bite.
Mi Abuelita is from Mexico City and Mi Abuelita Grande opened a restaurant here in San Diego in the 40's and she made Mexican food taste authentic without too much work. This is one of those recipes. Quick, easy, scrumptious, satisfying and authentic!
The only thing I changed was the amounts...I reduced the size to serve my family of 4.
FOR THE SAUCE
28oz can tomatoes
jalapeno peppers, stem removed, chopped
yellow or white onion, chopped
chicken broth, low sodium
corn chips, triangle shaped
shredded or chopped chicken (leftovers are great)
mexican cheese (queso fresco) crumbled, to taste
sour cream, to taste
cilantro, chopped, to taste
How To Make
In a blender add tomato, jalapeno, onion and garlic. Blend until somewhat smooth.
Heat lard in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add sauce and cook, stirring often, for about 5 minutes. Set to simmer.
Pour in broth and stir. Add chips and cover with sauce. Lat simmer for about 4 minutes. Chips should soften, but not get mushy.
