Torta de Chilaquiles

Thinking of Mexico City reminded me about one of the novelty/gimmicky experiences I had recently: tortas de chilaquiles. Yes, it exists. Chilaquiles sandwiched in a bun. Actually, it's a breaded chicken sandwich garnished with chilaquiles. (You can also choose shredded chicken, if I remember correctly). It was...okay. I mean I love breaded chicken sandwiches but the chilaquiles itself added very little. The tortillas in the chilaquiles were very soggy...it was really just the sauce. Apparently the stand has been around a long time and you can follow them on facebook. Worth trying if wanting a laugh. (My Mexican wife was quite offended by the very idea!)
