Crepas Enfrijoladas

Today has been an amazing day for this country. It somehow feels like a gust of fresh air in this very uncertain time in history. I am aware one single man cannot change the world or magically make everything better, but at least there is hope and many times hope is the only currency that can keep us going.

But now turning to what this blog is about, food, I present to you these crepas enfrijoladas (crepes with bean sauce) that were inspired by my friend Adriana of Madeline Cocina. She made egg tacos with a bean salsa, something that my mom makes and calls enfrijoladas, which literally means “in bean sauce”.

However, I made crepes stuffed with scrambled eggs instead of tacos and used a variation of this bean sauce. The crepe recipe can be found here. For the sauce I blended 1 cup of cooked pinto beans, 1 cup of diced tomatoes, 1/2 onion and 2 garlic cloves. I then seasoned and cooked the sauce over medium heat for 15 minutes and served it over the crepes with cream and queso fresco.

It was a very easy and delicious breakfast I had this morning before sitting down in front of the TV to witness history. What did you have for breakfast today?

  6. for me breakfast was homemade muesli rolls. I enjoyed watching the ceremony, but it was late afternoon here so had to finish by listening to his speech on the car radio as the timing ran into the kids taxi service time! I watch and listen with great interest to the future politics of your country!
