Source of recipe: This is one of my favorite things to eat.. Chilaquiles (red, to be specific, because there are variations; like green and in mole sauce) :D !Basically, they're tortilla chips (totopos) covered with sauce.
I like them plain, and sometimes eat them along some refried pinto or bayo beans.You can eat them just like I do or add vegan sour cream or vegan cheese on top. Traditionally, these are eaten with eggs or meat. You can use tofu to substitute the scrambled eggs or seitan, chik'n strips or soy curls to substitute the meat.
I like mine all soft and saucy, but if you don't, just put desired amount of tortilla chips in your plate and pour over the sauce when ready to eat.
