Love me a Mexican breakfast..

For me, there is nothing more delicious than warm flour tortillas, scrambled eggs with avocado, chile, beans and rice all folded up ready to eat.

Just had a chile relleno for breakfast from last nights dinner...heaven
Soy Chorizo is fantastic and from what my meat lover friends say, you cannot tell its made with soy..scrambled up with warm tortillas.

What's your fave Mex breakfast items?

      I love this dish. Especially my version.

      Ladle a bit of salsa onto the bottom of a plate (so the tortillas don't stick)
      Top with a corn tortilla.
      Slather on a good amount of refried beans (I add chopped chilies to my rfb)
      Top with another tortilla.
      Cover with a good amount of salsa
      Lay sunny side egg on top
      Sprinkle with shredded Jack cheese
      Sprinkle with broken up fried chorizo (removed from skin)
      Garnish with chopped cilantro/green onion mixture.

      Break open egg yolk and enjoy.

      Not exactly traditional however I did have a Mexican tell me it was a lot closer than what I though.


    2. In this town it has to be Taco Bell.

      1. Calabacitas guisadas with black beans and tortillas, yum!! Also, I always enjoy mex-inspired tofu ranchero with lots of avocado.

          Will you explain more about what calabacitas guisadas are? Sounds good anyway!

        2. When I lived in San Diego, I had machaca and eggs quite frequently. Or breakfast burritos. Or chilaquiles.

          1. 1) Torta de lechon w/ chicharrones & habanero salsa,30&30th in Playa del Carmen, under the blue tarp.
            2) Huevos motulenos, fruit plate in Yucatan
            3) Migas at Cisco's bakery in Austin
            4) Pan dulce and cafe at any Sanborns in DF
            5) huevos revueltos, with real Mexican bacon (hard to find)
            6) omelette with cheese and huitlacoche, topped with a warm thin red sauce
            7) Not Mexican, but my new Bahamian b'fast is callled "fire engine"; Google it.

              8) Grilled fresh conch with a couple huevos sunny side up at Los Pelicanos in Puerto Morelos, Q. Roo MX, at sunrise right on the water, with refried black beans and fresh squozen OJ.

                If you have coffee with a fire engine breakfast, you could be a menace to society.

                  Muchas gracias for the Cisco's mention; since the inexplicable closing of Las Mananitas on Congress, I have not known where to get my Austin Migas.
