I don’t know if you have the Extending the Table cookbook (int’l companion to More with Less), but it has a recipe for Chilaquiles in it that is very similar to this. I’ve got it typed and ready to post on my blog (or maybe I already did–can’t remember). Anyway, it’s a good use for extra corn tortillas–is this recipe you’ve posted for corn or flour tortillas?

So, I think I already commented on this, but it’s not showing up yet–maybe you’re moderating your comments like I do. Anyway, I noticed that I’d scheduled the Chilaquiles recipe I mentioned to be posted today, of all days–so, it’s on my blog if you want to check it out! full tummies

This was good, but definitely add some salt and pepper to the egg mixture.
