When you order nachos in Mexico

I’d say it’s fairly common knowledge that things like nachos and burritos are American inventions, rather than legitimate Mexican foods.

So what happens when you order nachos in Mexico? This:


A few tortilla chips, some putrid plastic cheese dip and some pickled jalapenos straight from a can.

May I suggest the superior alternative of chilaquiles?


I’m drooling

Chilaquiles is a dish made of lightly fried torn tortillas cut into triangles, topped with red or green salsa or mole, sometimes with chicken or chorizo (like in the photo above) and garnished with sour cream, local cheese, onion and avocado slices. Sometimes chilaquiles are topped with eggs and refried beans as well. They are often eaten at breakfast.

They are one of the most delicious things I’ve eaten in Mexico. Order the chilaquiles.
