Mexican food is one of the most exciting and flavorful cuisines from around the world. And what better meal to experience the fantastic food than breakfast? The rich and filling huevos rancheros is a classic that makes an extravagant breakfast on the weekends. The egg, bean and tortilla dish is a favorite, and you can even top it with some tomatillo salsa, or whip together a side of the best refried beans to make it a feast. If you like to have sweets for breakfast, drop the pancakes and french toast so you can fry some delicious churros or New Mexican sopapillas. So if you’re bored with your breakfast, spice it up with some of our favorite Mexican breakfasts.
New Mexican Sopaipillas
“I remember childhood visits to a restaurant on Albuquerque’s Old Town Plaza. We’d press our noses to the glass as cooks rolled out the dough, cut it into squares or triangles, and plopped them into the vat of hot, bubbling fat, then, that dramatic moment, when the pallid little dough shapes magically inflated and turned golden brown. We’d seize one of the warm puffs of dough, bite off a corner, and drizzle honey into the hollow cavity.” —Cheryl J.

Mexican Bean and Cheese Sandwich (Molletes)
The bolillo, a French-style crusty white bread roll from Mexico, is the traditional foundation of this comforting dish, but a kaiser or most any other sandwich roll will work well.
