This mouth-watering dish comes from the state of Yucatán, Mexico. And this delicious adapted recipe belongs to my Big Brother José Manuel! – Thank you Bro!
The fried eggs are layered with a delicious variety of ingredients that makes it a fullfilling breakfast.
It is very important that all ingredients are hot at the time of assembly, so you will need to use a lot of pots and pans! And once ready, eat quickly. There is nothing worse than a cold fried egg!
The original recipe calls for fried plantains which are not easy to find in SA, so if you do….you are so lucky!
