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