Chilequiles (a van recipe)

One of Geneva’s favorite meals was developed during the trip to the Canadian Maritimes. In Nova Scotia and New Brunswick there is not much Mexican food available. So after a process of trial and error, she developed this recipe for Chilequiles. She now serves it regularly to friends and family both in the van

  1. I like my huevos on top of a corn tortilla, with two eggs in top, simmer till eggs are almost done, then add white cheese and cover till cheese melts. Top with green salsa!

  2. Going to try this if I find enchilada sauce. Looks yummy!! It’s so easy to get stuck and cook the same things over and over again when you live in a van. Thanks for sharing this!
