As I was sorting through my few Mexican inspired dishes on zee bloggy, I noticed that, a.) there’s no Margaritas! (WHaaaaaaT?!?) and b.) my awesome Layered Breakfast Tortilla Pie was nowhere to be found!

How could I have missed posting my favorite Margarita recipe!? Argh! I will get around to it, you just wait. First, I need to share this awesome breakfast dish because it is incredibly delicious, and you can be all festive and serve it for breakfast this Sunday!

If this breakfast item is not your forte, I am going to give you a few other options that you can get down with on Cinco de Mayo.

Top Two:

Avocado Feta Salsa

Chicken Enchiladas

Bottom Two:

Fish Tacos with Creamy Lime Mustard Sauce

Ice Cream Chimichangas


That is all sorts of deliciousness, right?!

By the wayz, while you are partying it up with that tequila and tortilla, I will be stuffing my face with Mom’s delicious lamb casserole and these Croissants with Sesame Seeds and Feta. I just made a batch and they are aaaaamazing! We are celebrating Easter this weekend! No, I’m not losing it… it really is Easter… Orthodox Easter. We celebrate a bit later than everyone else. Not always, though. Sometimes it falls on the same day as yours.

Anywho! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend watching those horses race while chugging down a few pitchers of Margaritas and Mint Juleps!

To those celebrating Easter, Christ is Risen! Христос Воскресе!

  1. This looks heavenly Kate! We’ve been making breakfasts (other than cereal) on Sunday mornings. This will be a hit! Hope you had a great Easter. 🙂

  2. I just saw my first stack layered of tortilla this morning (on food blog – wish it was real). Now I see yours! YUM!!! I can have this for breakfast or lunch, even dinner! Thank you for the recipe. I always wanted to know more ways to use tortillas (I’m not very creative) and this is fantastic!

  3. Kate, your Breakfast Tortilla Pie looks ah-mazingly good! I eat this way (TexMex) nearly every weekend for breakfast. My fave foods and flavors! Let’s do brunch. Don’t worry…I’ll bring my Coconut Ginger Lime Margaritas! 😉 xo

  4. Looks good! Where there are tortillas and eggs and cheeses there can be no wrong.
    What’s the purpose of having two tortillas per layer? Just curious:)

  5. No margaritas! *eep* Oh well, this tortilla pie will more than make up for any lack of tequila. I’ll have two slices, please! (And make ’em big!) 😀

    This looks yummy indeed!
    Happy Easter Kate. I bet you will be exhausted by Sunday night…..I know I’ll be…..with lunch at my mother’s and dinner at my mother-in-law’s…….I just hope I’ll be able to get into my clothes by Monday. 🙂

  7. Yummy breakfast dish. I’ve been putting off making a couple of similarly themed brunch recipes for a while now but this weekend is probably a good time to trot them out.

    I took a quick peek at the other dishes, especially the fish tacos, as I’ve been wanting to make some of those as well.

    Funny that I haven’t seen any tamale recipes posted in a while now. I made some a while back and really wanted to squee together about their general tastiness.
