Have I told you all how much I love breakfast?  Oh yeah, probably about a bazillion times.  But I love breakfast.  And as much as I love the sweet stuff – pancakes and waffles and cinnamon rolls – if you put an egg in front of me, it will get me every time.

Do you know what else I love?  The March issue of Every Day with Rachael Ray.  I love every issue, but this Tex-Mex inspired issue has so many recipes bookmarked.  I think this is already the second recipe I’ve done from this issue, and I have another on the way.  I seriously want to make everything in this issue!!

This breakfast idea is perfect for any Tex-Mex lover.  Tortillas, jalepeno, hot sauce, all mixed in with delicious eggs – this is my kind of meal.  And even though this is technically a breakfast dish, I made it up for lunch one day and it was the perfect lunch.  It would make a perfect breakfast for dinner idea, too!  Oh, and hey – how about a midnight snack?  Ok, so you get my point – this would be perfect 24 hours a day!

What is your favorite time of day to eat breakfast foods?

  1. I love Migas…I don’t always love eggs for breakfast, but if they are done like this (Mexican or southwest style) I love them almost as much as I love my sweet breakfast foods. I love to eat breakfast food for dinner, too!

  4. With my crazier than heck schedule lately, we have been eating a lot of ‘breakfast dinners’ in our house! Living in Texas migas are a favorite of ours to spruce up plane ole’ scrambled eggs. Love ’em!

    Breakfast for dinner is quite possibly my favorite type of dinner…and between the avocado and the tex-mex flavors…this would be an instant love.
