Layered Breakfast Tortilla Pie – Stacked layers of tortillas filled with seasoned eggs, cheese, and tomatoes.
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.
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!
