Perfect hangover cure

Last Sunday we both woke up feeling pretty special having had one too many beers/gin and tonics the night before... After a rather slow start to the morning we managed to drag ourselves out of bed and become compos mentis enough to think about getting some pans out of the cupboard. A glass of orange juice and this Mexican breakfast - from the good old Mexican Food Made Simple by Thomasina Miers again - sorted us out completely.

Fried corn tortillas layered with smoky tomato sauce made from tinned tomatoes, chillies, garlic, onions, sugar and lots of chopped tarragon topped off with a fried egg, grated crumbly cheese like Wensleydale or Lancashire and more chopped tarragon and accompanied by a good cup of coffee. A great pick me up after a heavy night the night before and perfect Sunday soul food.


  1. Oh my, that does look pretty terrific, even without a hang over!

  2. Ah. You can't beat a fried egg to cut through that morning-after fog. Love the Mexican twist -almost makes me want to wake up with a hangover just to try it...

  3. Yes, it definitely made a change from the usual egg and bacon sarnies! Not that you can go wrong with an egg and bacon sarnie mind you... but nice to have a change.

  4. this looks delicious! I might try this - starting with the gin and tonics.

  5. Wendy - yes it's a very tasty breakfast. Makes a nice change from the usual fry up!
