The origins of this recipe are authentically Mayan. In a weeklong, full-participation course I developed for my New Mexican cooking school in Cozumel, we studied the similarities and differences of Mayan and New Mexican dishes. This popular breakfast dish recipe is from a chef at the Melia Mayan Hotel, where we conducted the class.

Leftover fried corn tortillas or corn tortilla chips can be used, but the fat content will be a great deal higher.

If you have no leftover cooked chicken breast, poach chicken breasts, covered with chicken broth, in the microwave oven for 2 to 3 minutes. Or cook on top of the stove in a saucepan for 6 to 8 minutes.
