This is one of those breakfast dishes that taste better when made at home, I gave it a shot this week by simplifying it a bit, I cheated and used El Pato sauce rather than making my own. I was a hUnGry girl so to avoid a grouchy me I used the canned stuff. Pato is perfect for this, plus I like the cans.

You’ll Need:
6 corn tortillas cut into quarters
1 can of El Pato
1 small onion, thinly sliced
salt and pepper to tase
4 eggs
1 cup of oil for frying tortilla chips
1 jalapeño sliced
few sprigs of parsley or cilantro
queso fresco or cotija cheese
mexican cream or crème fraîche

Method:
-heat oil in a skillet over medium heat
-add tortillas and watch them turn into a light golden brown color, you have to watch them carefully or they’ll burn on you, it takes about three minutes.
-once golden brown, drain chips over paper towels. You can also bake and avoid the whole frying process as well. Just make sure you drizzle the tortillas with olive oil to avoid burning.
-dispose of oil
-using the same pan, place chips back into pan and add eggs
-mix to coat chips with the eggs until cooked
-add your can of El Pato sauce and mix again, this step is takes about a minute
-plate your chilaquiles and garnish with cheese, parsley, onions, jalapeños and cream to tase!

Looking for lunch for two under ten? then look no further……Lucky Deli in L.A.’s Chinatown has some special treats for you. They have dim sum, bao, duck, and my favorite dish…a giant rice noodle stuffed with scallions and pork bits (cheong fun). I would have taken a picture of it but I ate it, (again). It’s so not fancy, don’t wear your Jimmy Choos or Prada sandals.
Have a wonderful weekend!!

Love Surfas, this weekend I had the fortune to attend one of their cooking demos hosted by food photographer & Master chef contestant; Becky Reams.  The demo was a three course meal wich consisted of; Smoked trout roulettes with brioche crackers, hot sauce mousse and shaved cucumber, no photo of this one, ate it before getting a photo of it :).  Second course knocked my socks off, it was ginger beer braised pork served over grits and a radish salad. My first encounter with grits and boar!! Tasting unknowns is so much fun lately, I truly enjoyed it. Untitled
The salad was topped with shiso leaves, have you had those? That was another first for me. For dessert, chef Becky made an inverted carrot cake with a cream cheese frosting, caramel mouse with coconut & pecan crumble……Untitled
My taste buds where spinning with joy.  Inspiring experience overall.  Now to try one of these recipes at home!
