What’s for Breakfast – Mexico Style!

Tamales for BreakfastWhat’s for breakfast at a B&B in Mexico?

 Here is a sampling!

Eggs & Shrimp in Tamales

A tamale is comfort food in Mexico!  Chili rellenos are another and a favorite.   Here, we stuff a poblano chili with eggs, shrimp & queso.  Then place it inside an opened tamale. Add fresh fruit to the plate and a ripe, lucious avocado.   Served with salsas de la casa, including fresh roasted tomato, roasted  tomatillo and roasted jalapeno.  Offer Valentina’s or Huichol sauces.  Delicioso!
