Huevos para almerzo 

(Eggs for brunch)

Well it is time for another super easy recipe!!!  I ate at Kerby Lane in Austin, Texas the other day and found a tasty dish!  I don’t remember what it is called but I remember most of the ingredients.  Of course I could not make their sauce called who-knows-what… So I decided just work with whatever I had at home. Voila! I came up with this scrumptious dish!  There is now another meal I can add to my brunch list and easy to-go breakfast for work.  This can literally take no more than 10 minutes!  I made several (with the avocado on the side) and pre-packaged them for the week.  You can heat it up in the microwave for just one minute and there is your healthy and easy meal!  They are hubby approved as well! 🙂

Ingredients: 

Two eggs

1 Corn tortilla

Black beans- about 2 tbsp (whole or refried – I used fat-free organic refried)

Dash of dried Parsley

Pepper and salt to taste

Uncured bacon

Your favorite salsa! (I used Texas Brew’s Fire Roasted Poblano Salsa)

Cheese – I like to use mozzarella cheese

1/2 avocado – cubed

Start cookin’!

1)   Cook your eggs over easy just the way you like it!  You can cook them any other way but I like mine a bit runny.

2)   Cook your bacon like you want.  For the busy and rushed folks out there, place a paper towel on a plate, put the bacon on top and then cover with another paper towel.  Cook the bacon in a microwave for 1 ½ – 2 minutes.  Don’t burn the bacon!  The paper towels will also soak up any extra bacon grease.

3)   Warm up a corn tortilla and place it on a plate.  I warm mine in a microwave for 45-60 seconds.

4)   Warm-up the refried beans.

5)   Cover the tortilla with the refried beans.

6)   Place the cooked eggs on top of the beans.

7)   Place the cooked bacon on top of the eggs.

8)   Add as much salsa as you want! I used about 3 tbsp and then added more later… Mmm!

9)   Sprinkle a fair amount a cheese (or more!) on top.

10)  Add the avocado.

Grab your fork and enjoy!

Cheers!

Super Easy Sweet Potato Fries

20131013-210500.jpg

Pre-heat oven at 450 degrees

What you need:

•parchment paper
•cookie sheet
•sea salt
•dried parsley
•cooking spray
•small sweet potatoes

**Cayenne Pepper (optional)

Peel as many sweet potatoes as you want. I peeled 5 very small ones.  My sweet potatoes came from a local grocery store. The small size makes it easier to cut.  I had to go all Jackie Chan on the bigger sweet potatoes because they were so thick and hard! I am SO glad I found a bag of small sweet potatoes.

Slice the potatoes.  The thicket the slices are, the longer it takes to bake all the way through.  Place your fries on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper.  Spray the fries with cooking spray then season with sea salt and parsley.  For those who like a bit of a kick, add a sprinkle of cayenne pepper! Yum!

Bake at 450 degrees for 20 minutes or until they are as crispy as you want.  Just don’t burn the fries!  Eat them plain or with your favorite dipping sauce. Enjoy!

Organic Tuscan Herb Olive Oil

20131013-204918.jpg

I discovered on of the best local shops in Austin, Con’ Olio Oils & Vinegars!!

They have a wide variety of oils and vinegar blends.  This shop is awesome!  You can grab a little sample cup and taste the mouth-watering infused oils and vinegars.  My favorite oil to use for dips and marinating is the Organic Tuscan Herb Olive Oil.  It taste like it came straight from Italy!

Marinate chicken or fish for 30 minutes in the fridge with this must have ingredient!

 

Order your oils online or stop by is you are in Austin!! It’s such a great city!! 🙂

Cheers!

Texas Brew Fire Roasted Poblano Salsa!

Texas Brew Fire Roasted Poblano Salsa!

This salsa is amazing! I recently tried it at the 2013 Austin Hot Sauce Festival. My fiancé and I agreed that we should purchase a bottle or two… or three!

As a Hispanic woman, I unexpectedly developed intense heartburn and acid indigestion. 😦 This is so sad! We love spicy food but my stomach does not!  This salsa is perfect for those of you who can’t handle too much kick.  It does have a slight kick but it is just right!

Check their website (http://www.texasbrewsalsa.com) for a list of super markets where you can find this delicious salsa! I use this as a dip and for cooking! Check out my Huevos Para Almerzo recipe!

Sunflower Seed Butter

Sunflower Seed Butter

I have no idea why I NEVER tried this before! It is amazing! This is perfect for those who unfortunately cannot eat peanut butter due to allergies. I am not allergic to peanut butter but I did discover that it causes extreme bloating and some dehydration. Peanut butter is so good too! I had to find a replacement. This Trader Joe’s sunflower seed butter is great and affordable. My other choice was a Sprouts brand which was on the pricier side.
