Melly's Chilaquiles Rojos
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.
