(Faux) Huevos a la Mexicana Enchilada – bringing the flavors of Mexico back home, with two kinds of spicy pepper and plant based comfort food goodness!
This is a new spin on breakfast for dinner.
This could also be enchiladas for breakfast.
Whatever you call it, call it good. It reminded Jason and I of the huevos rancheros and huevos a la mexicana we enjoyed in December. I just rolled them up enchilada style!
Cold and rainy is still what’s happening outside here in Portland, so comfort food is what’s happening inside.

Happy Friday, everyone – TGIF, indeed.
