Chicken Chilaquiles

Are you sick of recipes from Martha Stewart yet?  Well, Chicken Chilaquiles is another one of my new favorite recipes from her Great Food Fast Cookbook.

Chicken Chilaquiles
I absolutely love this dish! It’s quick, easy and a great way to use up leftovers.  I think it tastes best if when you get everything good and mixed together in your bowl. Just a note: canned chilies in adobe are really hot, so I recommend starting with one.  After I open a can, I like to put individual portions in small zip-top bags and freeze them to use later.  I can’t imagine a recipe using an entire can.  HOT!  But don’t leave them out. They give this dish such a great flavor. If you can find queso fresco (fresh Mexican cheese), use it in place of the feta to make your chilaquiles more authentic.
