To celebrate our country’s diversity, I made this Mexican-inspired version of a classic American strata in which bread soaked in milk and eggs is topped with layered leftovers and cheese. This traditional brunch dish often includes bacon and other meats, but many Mexicans base their diet on beans, corn, and peppers, so I chose this healthy and satisfying option. Like a frittata, bread pudding, or crustless quiche, it invites your own inventions.
