Huevos Motuleños

Robyn came to visit me in Montreal this past weekend (yay!) and we made the most labour-intensive, filling, delicious breakfast ever: Huevos Motuleños!

Robyn found the recipe here, and we modified it a bit by making our own cornmeal tortillas and refried black beans.

Take a gander (click for larger picture!):

The layers are, from bottom to top:

  • Homemade cornmeal tortilla
  • Re-fried black beans with sauteed mushrooms and onions
  • Two fried eggs (almost invisible in this picture) 
  • A reduction of pureed tomato, garlic and Serrano pepper (spicy!) 
  • A mixture of cottage cheese and feta cheese (a substitute for queso fresco, which we couldn't find)
  • Crumbled Italian sausage
  • Avacado
SO GOOD! We made the tortillas and the black bean mixture the night before, because we knew it would take a while to prepare and assemble everything. 

Here's a bonus picture of me rolling out cornmeal tortillas with a bottle of scotch (I don't have a rolling pin)
