Country: X for Xalapa — Mexico

Dish: Vegetarian Mexican Brunch — Black bean Huevos Rancheros, Spicy Home Fries & Sangrita

Today we are going to Xalapa, Mexico. Technically ther are no countries starting with X, so as a group it was decided that we pick a place that starts with X and then make a dish from that place or the country it belongs to. ‘X’ is the only alphabet that I didn’t have a country or dish planned. First I decided to a place in Spain, but then I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to cook from my favorite Mexican cuisine, so ended up with Xalapa, Mexico.

Another factor that made me want to do Mexican is Bobby Flay’s Mexican brunch that he made on Cooking Channel. Every he made looked so good that I wanted to recreate the whole meal at home. Huevos Rancheros has been on my to-make list forever, so this gave me an opportunity to try it.

Huevos Rancheros or ‘rancher’s eggs’ is a popular breakfast dish that has eggs and is traditionally served on rural Mexican farms. This dish consists of fried eggs served over fried corn tortillas and topped with tomato-chili sauce.

I added some black beans to the tomato-chili sauce to make a protein rich dish and served it with spicy home fries and Sangrita. This is a very filling and delicious breakfast/ brunch or any time meal.
