These Chilaquiles Weighed Almost A Chila-Kilo

Brick O' Chilaquiles

This is the kind of crap that the cafeteria at work serves. Every Friday is Chilaquiles Day at breakfast time and for 2 bucks, instead of the nice, fried tortilla pieces that are a little crispy at the edges and moistened with egg and chile sauce on the inside that you get at normal places, you get a huge brick of what-the-fuck with a thick layer of cheese on top. For kicks, I weighed it at the cashier's scale--it weighed almost a pound. Don't ask me why I bought it; I must have been smoking crack this morning. I took two bites and threw the rest out.

Pam - You're right, that does look kinda bad. That bile-yellow color sure doesn't help. Looks like it has already been sitting in someones stomach.

I never had Chilaquiles, but whatever that is in the pic looks good to me.

Kinda looks like a casserole doesn't it?

Isn't chilaquiles basically a way to get rid of old tortillas?

I've heard it's actually quite delicious when done right...but that one just looks congealed.

Kirk and Michelle,

Trust me. They sucked ass.


Yeah, chilaquiles are a way to get rid of old tortillas, but like I said. These sucked ass.


Awww, thanks! You're so sweet. I think I'm too much of an airhead for the Post though.

those chilaquilasagnas look terrible. the ones i had were basically tortilla chips mixed with cheese. this just looks flat. hope your stomach was ok after this warfare.

Yeah, fortunately my stomach was OK after eating this, but like I said I only had 2 bites so who knows what woulda happened if I had more. =P
