Breakfast


The breakfast of your dreams, prepared by Pati and her sister Alisa. This episode includes both quick, simple dishes and ones meant for a deliciously messy morning feast.

Holly Morris and the Fox 5 News crew threw a fiesta at my house this morning for Mexican Independence Day, which is this Saturday, September 15. This is Mexico’s Fourth of July! 

We started by gathering a few chiles from my backyard garden. And Kelly, from Capital Decor, made some gorgeous chile arrangements to spice up my kitchen. 

Then, I make Rabo de Mestiza with Holly. Rabo de Mestiza is a dish where eggs are poached in a tomato and poblano sauce. It’s perfect for an Independence Day brunch because the white eggs, green chiles and red tomato sauce represent the colors in Mexico’s flag.

Mexican-style eggs

“All I want is a hamburger, a hot dog, a Pizza, a nice big steak, some Texas style bar-b-q and a big plate of pancakes… no tacos or anything Mexican ok?” My dad said, after devouring the welcoming meal I prepared for him, which happened to be Tacos de Guisado.

Guisados are Mexican style stews, which can be ladled into warm corn tortillas. There are plenty of Fondas or small restaurants that specialize in them throughout Mexico. Since my dad loves them, I received him with three of his favorites: Chicken Tinga heavy on the chipotle, beef cooked in a green salsa with cubed potatoes and nopalitos, cactus paddles, sauteed with onion, Guajillo Chilies and corn. There were also refried beans and white rice, as they are such friendly sides to tacos.

After he made it clear that he didn’t want anything Mexican for the next three days, making me laugh so hard along the way, we set off to satisfy his cravings.
