Oaxaca - Mexican Breakfast



We absolutely love breakfast in Mexico - Huevos a la Mexicana, Huevos Rancheros, Huevos Divorciados (like Rancheros, but with both red and green salsa - why choose?), we love them all. Back in Oaxaca, we are now staying in a place with a kitchen, so we've been able to shop at the local mercados and cook. The picture above is a chorizo and vegetable hash topped with a huevo estrellado. The chorizo here is fantastic, and we've been using a lot of it.

When we were in Puerto Escondido, we had a breakfast dish that was new to us - Huevos al Albañil, which loosely translates as "homebuilder" or "bricklayer" eggs. It has eggs scrambled in big chunks mixed with salsa (usually green, but sometimes red) and served on top of corn tortillas. This is our version, with some chorizo on the side:
