Chilaquiles is a traditional Mexican dish that combines tortillas with layers of salsa and cheese. This makes a perfect group dish for the Super Bowl or Sunday Brunch, because of the tortilla chips. Serve with margaritas for best results

1 jalapeño pepper, stem and seeds removed
1 white onion, halved again
4 garlic cloves
1 bunch of fresh rinsed and dried cilantro leaves (with stems)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 bag of Tortilla Chips 13 ounce
2 cups of Natural and Kosher Mozzarella shredded cheese
1. Put in a food processor the tomatillos, garlic, jalapeno, onion, cilantro, salt and pepper and process until you get a pretty smooth salsa.
2. Combine salsa and equal amount of vegetable broth OR water in a medium saucepan. cover and bring to boil over high heat then reduce to a simmer for about 30 minutes
3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place half the chips in a 3- Qt baking dish- squish them together so the bottom of the dish is covered ,spread a layer of cheese, then a layer of salsa
Repeat the layering with the remaining chips, salsa mixture, and cheese on top- Bake until the casserole is hot and the cheese melts, 20 to 30 minutes.
