Spicy Desayuno

Every time I go to Latin America, I come home inspired to eat spicy eggs and beans for breakfast. And without fail, this lasts for a few days, and I fall back into my comfortable and entirely boring oatmeal routine.

There is something hearty and invigorating about eating spicy food in the morning – quite the opposite of the relaxed, sleep-inducing effect American pastries tend to have. Fresh from a weeklong holiday in Costa Rica, where I ate Tabasco-laced eggs coupled with rice and beans every morning, I’m trying to keep some spice in my morning meal. Here’s a simple rice and bean recipe you can keep in the fridge and warm up to accompany scrambled or fried eggs.  It’s a delicious way to kick-start your morning.

  • Saute onion, bell pepper, garlic, and cumin in a small amount of oil
  • Add small amount of tomato sauce or salsa
  • Mix with cooked black beans and rice
  • Add salt, pepper, chopped cilantro, and salsa to taste
  • Serve alongside scrambled or fried eggs

Que rico!
