If breakfast is the most important meal of the day, this authentic Mexican dish should hold you over for a week or two. A fiesta of scrambled eggs, onions, and tortilla chips covered in melted, creamy Tillamook Monterey Jack Cheese.

“Chilaquiles are a classic Mexican breakfast.  The idea was that you would use leftover, stale, chips from the day before.  It’s the best hangover cure I know.  Well, that and a Bloody Maria (Bloody Mary with Tequila) on the beach…” – Hosea Rosenberg of Blackbelly Catering
