A Note To Myself...

  When I feel betrayed my first reaction is to lash out... but I know that is the weakness of my flesh...  So I am going to work on memorizing these couple of verses for moments such as now when my heart aches and my stomach is in knots and I just need that little reminder that God has me...

  Romans 12:19 - Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.”

 Proverbs 3:6 - In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.

 John 3:16 ESV - “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

 Psalm 46:1 ESV - To the choirmaster. Of the Sons of Korah. According to Alamoth. A Song. God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble

Quite Possibly My Favorite Breakfast Food Ever!

Say it with me, "chee-lah-KEE-lays" Chilaquiles are lightly fried, stale tortillas cooked in a salsa verde and topped with cheese. They have many variations just like burritos and enchiladas. Some versions top them with tomato sauce, a fried egg or a piece of chicken or beef.  But MY #1 version has 2 eggs over easy and a yummy piece of ham steak or arrachera on the side!

Ingredients:
6 corn tortillas (cut into 1" wide strips & each strip cut in half, or 2 cups of tortilla chips)
2 cups salsa verde
1 cup shredded white cheese (queso quesadilla, queso chihuahua or in a pinch mozzarella)
Oil for pan


Preparation:
Lightly coat a medium frying pan with oil. Heat over medium-high heat and add in tortilla strips (or chips) and lightly fry until slightly crispy.  Quickly pour sauce over chips and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer chips in sauce (but do not stir them)until the chips have absorbed enough liquid to become soft. 

While it is simmering make 2 eggs over easy (for the perfect eggs over easy click here)

Place the eggs over easy on top & sprinkle cheese on top and let cheese melt. Top with sour cream, cilantro & thinly sliced onion & serve immediately.
