¡Happy Cinco de Mayo!

hola

Here’s a quick Mexican breakfast for anyone who wants to celebrate Cinco de Mayo this morning, or any other morning.

These burritos take advantage of the leftover ingredients I had after making huevos rancheros earlier this week. That means I used chorizo, refried beans, Monterrey Jack cheese, my homemade salsa and, of course, eggs.

Chorizo & Bean Breakfast Burritos
– Chorizo pork sausage (1 link)
– 2 eggs
– 2 flour tortillas
– 1/2 cup of refried beans
– Monterrey Jack cheese, shredded
– Salsa (I used my homemade salsa)
– Margarine (or butter)
– Salt & pepper

Brown the chorizo sausage in a medium-sized pan. When cooked, place on a paper towel-lined plate and set aside. Next, (re)heat the refried beans.

Crack the eggs and beat them in a bowl with a fork. Heat two large tablespoons of margarine on medium-low heat in a pan. When the margarine is almost melted, add the eggs and stir — and keep stirring until they’re as firm as you want. (I like ’em soft, so this takes less than a minute.) Remove from the heat and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Heat the tortillas in the microwave for 20 seconds. Put half the eggs in the center of a tortilla, and the rest on the other one. Sprinkle both with cheese, a spoonful of beans and chorizo. Roll up the tortillas, cover with salsa and eat.

With eggs, beans and sausage this is a really satisfying breakfast. The salsa, which could also be put inside, adds a fresh, zesty bite. Plus, since it’s quick, you can skip the fast food breakfast, make your own and still get out of the house on time.

Happy Cinco de Mayo, amigos!

    This would have been much tastier than my yogurt this morning! Happy Cinco de Mayo. 🙂

  2. I love your salsa. We do something similar when we have fresh tomatoes. Both Mexican ideas are great.
