Food / Breakfast / Mexico / Eggs.
One of the breakfast choices in Mexico is eggs in a variety of styles.
Quiero huevos fritos con tocino, bien cocido, y frijoles refritos.
I want fried eggs with bacon, well-cooked, and refried beans. Quiero huevos rancheros. (Son huevos sobre una tortilla con una salsa picante.)
I would like eggs ranch-style. (They are eggs on a tortilla with a warm salsa picante on top.) Quiero huevos revueltos con pimientos y cebollas.I want scrambled eggs with peppers and onions. (This is served with a lightly spicy sauce and beans, a style known as ‘a la Mexicana’.)Huevos fritos volteados con tocino y frijoles. Los huevos pueden ser duros, medios o tiernos.
Eggs over-easy with bacon and beans. The eggs can be hard, medium or soft. Omelette de hongos, pimientos y queso.
Omelette with mushrooms, peppers and cheese. ¿Cómo le gustan los huevos? (How do you like your eggs?)
- estrellados (sunny side up)
- revueltos (scrambled)
- tibios (boiled)
- volteados (over-easy): suaves (soft), medios (medium), duros (hard)
¿Cómo le gusta el huevo tibio? (How do you like your boiled egg?)
Me gusta suave (soft), medio (medium), duro (hard).
¿Cómo le gusta el tocino? Me gusta dorado. Me gusta crujiente.
(How do you like your bacon? I like it golden. I like it crispy)
Another desayuno (breakfast) menu. The huevos al gusto (eggs as you want) come with tocino (bacon), o (or) chorizo (spicy sausage) o jamon (ham), o ‘a la mexicana’ (scrambled with peppers and onions) o ‘naturales’ (plain). There is also an option for chilaquiles, a very popular breakfast dish in Mexico, layers of crunchy cut-up tortillas in a spicy tomato sauce topped with cebollas (onions) and queso (cheese) and/or crema (cream). On the menu they are served with pollo (chicken), carne asada (roast meat, usually pork) and frijoles (beans), at times with huevos fritos.And of course you can get your huevos with ‘hot cakes’, not very Mexican but served everywhere!
