Start your celebration first thing in the morning with these Cinco de Mayo Breakfast Ideas!
Hey Weary Chef friends! My name is Kelley from the Grant life and I am SUPER excited to be sharing 7 Cinco de Mayo Breakfast ideas with you today. Why? Well, I am a breakfast AND Mexican food lover. So naturally, when the two come together I sort of get excited. (And yes, food gets me excited. Can’t help it really.)
Best Cinco de Mayo Breakfast Ideas: 7 Traditional Recipes
Mexican Breakfast Hash – Oh my gosh, yall. This is a toss everything together and out comes something delicious – a type of breakfast. And the flavor combination sounds pretty amazing!
Mexican Tofu Scramble – I have never tried tofu before, but this scramble might change that! Low calorie and full of flavor? Umm, yes please! Ps.. take a look at the cilantro “rice”!
Loaded Breakfast Totchos – Ok, I’m slightly biased on this one since it’s one of our favorites at the Grant house, but these totchos are SO GOOD! (Totcho – tater tot nacho.) My husband requests these all.the.time.
Homemade Corn Tortillas – Andi shared these bad boys here at The Weary Chef the other day. And guys, I fell in love. I fell in love with a tortilla! They just look so fluffy and super easy to make. Image all the breakfast goodness you can stuff into one of those!
Horchata – I’m from South Texas so this horchata is perfect! We drink it all the time and it’s just so creamy and refreshing. Pour a big ole glass for Cinco de Mayo and enjoy!
Overnight Breakfast Enchiladas – I saw these the other day and I thought “GENIUS!” Overnight breakfast enchiladas. Literally, all my favorite things wrapped up into one delicious breakfast dish!
Loaded Breakfast Tostadas – These are a fun spin on a classic tostada, except I loaded these with eggs and bacon. Oh and onion, jalapenos, bell peppers. And cheese. All on top of a crispy tortilla!
Alright, that’s all the deliciousness for today. I’ll be back in a month or so to share some more breakfast recipes with y’all. And if you can’t wait till then – pop over to my site to get a ton of great (and easy!) breakfast ideas!
