A Spoonful of Sofrito: A Dozen Magnificent Mexican Breakfasts!
A Spoonful of Sofrito: A pinch of advice that will add a lot of flavor to your life.
A Dozen Magnificent Mexican Breakfasts!
If you've never had the pleasure of starting your day off with a Mexican breakfast, then you my friend have not lived. Mexican breakfasts are incredible. Now, I recognize that it's not for everyone-some folks don't want to eat refried beans or tamales for breakfast-and I get that, but it is still worth a try.
Mexican breakfasts can be incredibly creative, satisfying, and invigorating. The combination of slow cooked well seasoned meats, sauteed veggies, and delicious corn meal tortillas can give any Lumberjack breakfast a run for its money.
Let me make something clear: I'm talking about a real Mexican breakfast, from one of the eateries in the Eater.com article below, not the Taco Bell Breakfast menu! That food is a one way trip down Diarrhea Road!
Tomorrow morning treat yourself to an incredible Breakfast Taco, a toasted pan dulce with butter, or a plate of Chilaquiles. You'll be doing yourself a favor.
Read the article, get yourself some grub, and Buen provecho!
Few cuisines offer the breakfast latitude that Mexican does, from a lively range of fried egg platters, to giant heaps of chilaquiles made from last night’s tortillas, to hot tamales, to Texas-style breakfast tacos, to the cudgel-size bean-bearing burritos of California. And then we have the sandwiches called tortas and cemitas, each with its own special breakfast potential, and the colorful sweet rolls known as pan dulce, available in any Mexican bakery. Here, in observation of Eater’s Breakfast Week, we serve up some of the best Mexican breakfasts in town.
