Huevos a la Mexicana

¡Hola amigos!

Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner.  I’m a fan of Mexican food and margaritas so I am a fan of this holiday.  Now, I’ve only eaten authentic Mexican food once, from Tijuana, so I can’t really speak to true authenticity here.  I hear that Mexican food differs throughout all areas of Mexico, but I will say that I do enjoy a plate of Mexican-American food from time to time.  So I thought I would share these Mexican-style eggs with you.

These eggs are really easy to put together.  You can make your own salsa like I did here or use your favorite bottled salsa.  The name “Huevos a la Mexicana” comes from the red tomatoes and green chiles in these eggs and represents the colors in the Mexican flag.  You can make your eggs as spicy as you’d like.  Because I usually serve these with black beans and avocados, I tend to add a bit more heat.  ¡Muy caliente!

If you have a great recipe you’d like to share, post the link in the comments below.  I’m always looking for new recipes!

Anywho, feliz Cinco de Mayo mis amigos and enjoy your day.
