Mexican Eggs


Mexican EggsPerfect for a brunch menu and most of the work can be done the day before. Double the recipe for large crowds. If you make the sauce ahead, make sure you reheat it before you crack the eggs in. Otherwise adjust the cooking time for the sauce to heat. This is a winter winner for a Saturday or Sunday stay at the table and eat and talk and make more toast and coffee and repeat days. I love those days
