Known as the "hangover meal", chilaquiles are much more than a good cure for hangover. They are great for brunch or dinner.
• Place the chicken, water, garlic cloves, onion, parsley and salt in a large saucepan. Cover and simmer until chicken is tender, about 20 minutes. Remove and shred the chicken. Reserve 2 cups of the stock.
• Cut tortillas in half and cut each half into 3 pieces. Place ¼” oil in a large skillet. Heat oil over high-heat, when really hot but not smoking; add a bunch of the tortilla pieces making sure they don’t overlap, and fry, stirring constantly, until they are golden and crisp, 3 to 4 minutes. Place a paper towel on top of a plate and transfer fried tortillas to the plate. Repeat until all the tortillas are fried.
• Pour the Mexico City sauce in a medium sauce pan, add one cup of the reserved broth and the chopped cilantro. Bring to a boil. Lower the heat and cook, uncovered for 5 minutes. Add the epazote and lower the heat.
• Add the tortillas and the shredded chicken and stir carefully. Serve chilaquiles on each plate and top with cream and cheese. Provecho!
