San Miguel: Mexican Breakfast

Ok, I have to leave you with one last post about the food in San Miguel, as it’s what I’m missing the most: Mexican breakfast.

For example, my favourite Mexican breakfast — clockwise from left: Crepes filled with mushrooms, “green and red” sauces, refried beans with queso fresco, squash blossom quesadilla and scrambled eggs in green sauce:

Along with this, we added lots of red and green sauce:

As well as extra quesadillas with corn tortillas made to order, cooked outside on the grill:

Out of all the toppings available, my favourite was huitlacoche (a fungus that grows on corn, and is mightily delicious):

And another great breakfast — clockwise from top: An egg steamed in a sarsaparilla leaf (tastes a bit like peppermint!), chilaquiles (crispy corn tortilla chips covered with sauce – in this case, green sauce), refried beans with queso fresco, jicama spears, pico de gallo and avocado:

Along with some fresh tamales:

And we finished the meal with a bit of mild cheese (all the cheese I found in San Miguel was mild):

And when we did breakfast at home?  Fried plantains… how can you go wrong?

    I miss the food too – my tastebuds will be thanking Pria for many years to come : ) Such good finds!

    Also, I love that I am now a hand model. I never did get that manicure.

    My breakfasts in San Miguel were a little different — a plate of sliced fruit, followed by eggs, corn tortillas, and salsa (prepared by my host mom). Starting the day with a plate of fresh fruit is such a good idea, but somehow, I never do it at home…

    It was so nice to read your posts about (and see the photos from) San Miguel — sounds like a great trip!
