What is Chilaquiles?

Chilaquiles originated in Mexico. The word Chilaquiles originated from the Aztecs, and it means chilis and greens. It is usually eaten at breakfast or lunch and has been used to help hangovers.

There are many variations of this dish. For example, in central Mexico, the tortilla chips are supposed to be crispy. Shortly after the chilaquiles are done cooking, all the ingredients except the salsa are poured on the tortilla chips. The salsa isn’t added to the dish until it is about to be served. In Guadalajara, cazuelas, which is flavored stock, are kept simmering with the Chilaquiles to form a thick stew similar to polenta.

The How, When, Where and Why About Tea.

The How, When, Where and Why About Tea.

Tea is an infusion of dried herbs, bark, leaves or fruit that is used for medicinal or personal purposes.

I have four words for you: I don’t drink coffee. (Gasp!) Yeah, I know. I’m one of the few Americans who doesn’t rely on ground coffee beans mixed with water, milk, and spices. Instead, I rely on an infusion of dried fruit to wake me up or put me asleep. Ever since I was a little kid, I have enjoyed drinking tea, not coffee. To me, coffee has a weird flavor. I’ve drunk coffee a few times, but only because I poured more than a teaspoon of sugar in it. Speaking of tea, one of my favorite tea companies is Yogi. Yogi started in 1984 after a group of yoga students  attempted to brew the tea that their yoga teacher would brew for them. Yogi started with three flavors, now they have over 60 flavors, and they sell in grocery stores across America, Canada, Europe, and Japan.
