Mexican Breakfast Recipes

In Cooking

Weekend breakfasts are all about extravagance and indulgence. They’re about making up for all those boring bowls of mid-week cereal and rushed rounds of toast and marmite. They’re the two days of the week when you can really do justice to the most important meal of the day and make something special. They’re about eggs, avocados, butter, bacon and brilliant baked treats. Here are eight of our favourite Mexican breakfast recipes to kick-start a wonderful weekend…

1.Eggs Florentine With Smoky Hollandaise

Eggs Florentine is the mother of breakfast ideas which is why it takes our top spot.

Whether you’re putting this dish with eggs, bacon, vegetables or all of the above, it’s breakfast royalty and fully deserves its buttery crown.

2.Huevos Rancheros

If you’ve never tried this amazing Mexican breakfast recipe, we suggest it’s about time you did.
We poached the eggs in a slow-cooked tomato and red pepper sauce made spicy with some Chipotle Chilli Paste.

This is a great brunch idea which is great for sharing if you’ve got friends coming round.  If it’s a hangover you’re trying to shake, this is guaranteed to help.

3.Champions Chilli Breakfast

A healthy and delicious breakfast idea, this champion chilli breakfast has everything a growing chico needs. If you’ve got left-over chilli con carne, this is a great way to use it up as it works beautifully with a fried egg and guacamole.

Go on, be a champion this weekend!

4.Poached Egg and Avocado Toast 

The holy trinity of eggs, avocado and chilli never fails to make a top-notch breakfast and this one’s no different. This is a simple Mexican breakfast recipe that’ll have you making it time after time.
It’s so quick to make, you could even squeeze this in on a weekday!

5.Breakfast Chilaquiles

Chilaquiles is a traditional Mexican breakfast dish. If you’ve got them, soft corn tortillas are best, but if you can only lay your hands on the pre-fried version (tortilla chips), then use those instead. A rich spicy tomato sauce is poured over the crispy tortillas and then it’s topped with cheese and fried eggs.

6.Breakfast Burrito

The great thing about a breakfast burrito is that you can fill it with up with lots of different ideas. We went for scrambled eggs, guacamole, and a good dollop of our Chipotle Chilli Ketchup

Best served with a strong black coffee and orange juice. Enjoy!

7.Mexican Scrambled Eggs

This is one of our favourite Mexican breakfast recipes for the weekend. Perfectly scrambled eggs with chorizo, spring onions and topped with deliciously spicy Gran Luchito Chipotle Chilli Ketchup.

8.Black Pudding Breakfast

In Mexico, blood sausage and offal is extremely popular. A good substitute for this would be black pudding a blood sausage originally from northern England. Put it on toast with some of our chipotle mayo and it’s delicious.
