Very Mexican!

 Last weekend I prepared a breakfast for us that was "muy mexicano".

I made "huevos a la mexicana"... scrambled eggs with diced tomatoes, chopped onion and jalapeño pepper.  It had been described as the most quintessential Mexican breakfast dish.  I topped it with a bit of shredded "cotija" cheese.  "Cotija" is an aged cheese that is somewhat similar to Parmesan in flavor.

I made the "frijoles refritos" (refried beans) from scratch, not from a can.  They are topped with "crema" and more "cotija" cheese.

I had a couple of extra avocados that needed to be used, so I also made some guacamole.

If I do say so myself, "¡Muy delicioso!"
