    These Mexican-style eggs (aka huevos), scrambled in a tomato-based salsa, take hardly any time to make, yet they're so delicious. The jalapeno in the salsa gives this dish its kick -- simply add more or less, depending on your heat preference.

  • Spicy Paleo Pumpkin Muffins

    Who says muffins have to be sweet? This recipe, which is grain-free and vegetarian, takes things to the savory side with the warm flavors of smoked paprika and cumin and a good dose of chili flakes for heat. They make a great grab-and-go breakfast, especially alongside a tall glass of cold real milk!

  • Chorizo and Eggs

    This spicy sausage scramble is easy enough for a busy weekday morning, but weekend company-worthy as well. The chorizo packs such a flavor punch that these eggs don't need much beyond a little sauteed onion and some plumped raisins to make it complete.

  • Cheddar and Jalapeño Biscuits

    If you like enchiladas for dinner, then you'll probably love chilaquiles for breakfast--they're basically the same ingredients! True Mexican comfort food, chilaquiles (pronounced chee-la-KEE-less) are strips of fried tortillas simmered in salsa, often served with eggs and a side of beans. We offer two homemade salsa recipes -- make them as hot or as mild as you like.
