One of my fondest memories of living with my mom is eating breakfast together. Our favorite was of course Chilaquiles. We loved having them anyway, red or green, but I can still remember the smell of my mom cooking the red chiles with garlic to make her spicy salsa roja just for the chilaquiles. If there was any left over, which was rare, we would make enchiladas for lunch. Double the yum! Every time she visits me I ask her to make them for me, even though I can make them myself, there’s nothing like having your Mami cook for you.
