They have all things Tex-Mex with gluten-free options, 0g of trans fat, lard-free tamales and a selection of salsa so you can make any adventure, party, or meal at home delicious and SPICY. They also have some of the best Tex-Mex in the Lone Star State. What was really cool is that I got to MEET the owners!! They were so sweet, welcoming, and they were so excited that I wanted to blog about their restaurant. After opening in 2009, they have been beyond blessed to open their second shop this year in Coppell, TX.

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.
