Today’s Google Doodle Celebrates The Best Breakfast Food, Chilaquiles

As we speak’s Google Doodle is a foodie’s delight. The Doodle is a celebration of considered one of my very favourite breakfast meals, the great chilaquiles, which paradoxically I made for myself not as soon as, however twice this week.

In keeping with Google, Oakland-based visitor artist Chava Oropesa created the Doodle.

The chilaquile is an easy dish, although you possibly can spruce it up as a lot as you want. At its most elementary, you simply want some fried tortilla strips or chips, some enchilada sauce, some cheese and a fried egg or two. Cowl the chips in enchilada sauce and cheese, warmth it up, prime with eggs, devour. Simple, fast and scrumptious!

As with all Mexican dishes, the kind of chilaquiles you’ll discover in Mexico varies by area.

You’ll be able to add avocado, guacamole, salsa, cotija cheese, melted queso, jalapenos, or actually no matter your coronary heart (or abdomen) wishes, together with slow-cooked pork or hen. You would even assume means exterior the field and make a inexperienced chile gravy and do a hybrid biscuits and gravy chilaquiles, although possibly with corn muffins as an alternative.

My level is, it is a nice alternative to set the universe proper in the event you haven’t had chilaquiles earlier than. You’ll be able to decide pink or inexperienced enchilada sauce. I believe it’s completely fantastic out of a can, however in the event you wished to get actual fancy-like, you may make it from scratch. Simply don’t overcook the eggs! You need the yolk good and runny. One other good thought is to make your individual tortillas and use some for tacos for dinner, then use no matter’s left and fry them up for breakfast the following day.

Chilaquiles could be traced again to historical Aztec instances, however have been solely launched to American eaters by Encarnación Pinedo, “The Spanish Prepare dinner” in 1898. I’ve had them in Mexico and and US eating places, although largely I simply make them at residence.

I’ll say, a very good batch of hash browns with runny eggs can also be within the operating for finest breakfast meals. And it’s laborious to beat do-it-yourself biscuits and gravy. However I believe if I needed to decide only one breakfast for all times, it will be chilaquiles. Although I do additionally love breakfast tacos.

Or possibly huckleberry pancakes. Arduous to beat huckleberry pancakes.
