The colorful world of Mexican breakfasts

Much like colorful Mexican festivals, such as Dia de Muertos and bustling carnivals, Mexican breakfasts are happy, appetizing, and highly nutritious (via Travel Triangle). Who could choose just one?

One of the most popular breakfasts in Mexico is called huevos rancheros (farmer’s eggs), which consists of fried eggs, corn tortillas, spicy salsa and additional ingredients, such as onions and avocado slices (via SBS). The dish is also popular across the border in the United States, and it’s easy to see why. Those opting for lighter meals should try the authentic Mexican tamales, made with different ingredients wrapped in corn dough and then steamed in corn husks until tender. And hungry diners who have had a rough night can opt for the menudo, a typical Mexican hangover remedy. This hearty stew is made with beef, tripe, onions, cilantro and a spicy chili-based sauce.

Tortilla lovers would probably love the chilaquiles, made with fried wedged corn tortillas and topped with salsa, eggs, cheese, and sometimes shredded chicken. And if nothing satisfies you, street food is a great option where you can choose from enchiladas and corn on the cob, delicious tacos and a variety of mole sauces (per BBC). There’s a delicious breakfast for everyone in Mexico, and we’re already thinking about packing our bags and booking a bed-and-breakfast.
