Chilaquiles with Baked Tortillas

One of my favorite meals I had for the first time in the cafeteria when I worked at Mattel was Chilaquiles. I loved working at Mattel and the cafeteria was a huge perk. There were so many healthy options and it was so nice to be able to have delicious food without having to get in a car and drive somewhere. I always looked forward to the days Chilaquiles was the special on the menu. Traditionally a Mexican breakfast, Chilaquiles are often served with eggs but can also be seen as a lunch item on menus with chicken or carne asada. I finally decided to make them for breakfast and they were so delicious.
