Mexican Breakfast

Country : Mexico

Though Mexican cuisine is a blend of indigenous (Indian) and Spanish influences, most Mexicans continue to eat more native foods, such as corn, beans, and peppers. Such foods are cheap and widely available. Bread and pastries are sold, but the tortilla, homemade or bought daily at the local tortillerĂ­a (tortilla stand), is the basis of the typical meal. Flour tortillas are also eaten, especially in northern Mexico, but the corn variety is most popular.

Breakfast in Mexico can range from a simple cup of coffee to a huge spread featuring huevos rancheros. 

Mexican cuisine has been one of my favorite, I guess , because it has Indian traits, for today I have a spread where I served this breakfast for dinner. Somehow a elaborate breakfast is a complete no in our family, since it was a working day I planned it for dinner.

The menu

( potatoes stir fried with onion and pepper)

Mexican Bean Tortilla

The accompaniments

The complete menu was a hit, the stuffed tortillas tasted fantastic . The combo of spinach and salsa was amazing. My hubby loved the rice and did not mind them as it is.
Potatoes are a hot favorite , so one can't go wrong with them.
The Banana Buritto...well inspite of my not eating banana I loved this , the nutella banana combo is eternal. You could surely add some nuts to make it perfect breakfast.
Hot cocoa is a all time Mexican treat, which was relished by my niece.
All in all a lovely meal.
