This Huevos Motulenos breakfast is hearty layers of meat and protein and more protein and eggs and cheese and awesome.
I didn’t know breakfast until today.
I was sad and alone in a world with only sugary sweets and prepacked bars and tarts to lure me in. For years I spend searching for a savory meal to satisfy the wrenching from my empty stomach in the morning and fuel me through the day. And today is the day that I found just that.
This Mexican breakfast is hearty layers of meat and protein and more protein and eggs and cheese and awesome. All topped with a delicate sprinkle of cheese. Crunch from the tostadas, spice from the salsa, and oh sweet mother of all that is good the egg and beans are amazing. Add some pickled red onions and toss some sweet fried plantains on the side and this may be my final request.
The hunt is over, fellow Carnivores. This is the breakfast you have been searching for.
