This is the Chilaquiles de Mercado dish.  It’s crispy tortilla strips topped with tangy tomatillo-serrano sauce, carnitas, cheese, avocado slices and a side of flavorful beans.  Every bite was delicious.

And the French toast was tasty.  Thick slices of egg-soaked bread fried to perfection and dusted with powdered sugar.  It’s the dessert of the breakfast.
