Expressing creativity via cooking is not only a form of entertainment for me but also a method of self care for me. So using my imagination, being able to eat, and it look nice for me is a good time. Anyway I came up with this dish by using all the leftovers from taco night. I usually will make breakfast burritos or tacos with the left overs but one morning I really wanted to impress the person I was making breakfast for so I came up with this lovechild of a tostada, Mexican pizza from Taco Bell, chilaquiles, and a quesadilla. So here I give you…”The Morning After” inspired by all those things aforementioned as well as a track “Where are my panties” off one of my favorite albums that shall never be taken out of rotation ever “The Love Below”. Ok, I know y’all tired of me talking and you’re here for the steps. Keep in mind I’m just giving you technique and a loose guideline. You can literally customize this annyyyyyy way you want, make it vegan, make it vegetarian, make it with all the meat you want. Get Freaky, you know the vibes.
What I used:
- 2 Corn Tortillas
- 1 Scrambled Egg
- Cooked red potatoes
- Veggie Sausage Chopped
- Pepperjack Cheese
- Red and Green Salsa
- Sour Cream
- Enchilada Sauce
- Sauteed Bell pepper
Ok so boom, heat about 2 tablespoons of oil in a pan and and fry one side of your tortilla for about a min or two until you see it crisp up. Then flip it over, once you flip it over layer your fillings onto your tortilla, then grab you second tortilla and place it on top. Press the top tortilla down gently to ensure all the ingredients meld together and the cheese melts (if you are adding cheese).
Once you notice the bottom tortilla getting crispy go ahead and flip that thang and cook the other side for about 3 mins, use your eyes you want your tortillas to be golden brown and crispy damn near like a chip.
Once done remove from heat and top! I highly reccomend drizzling some enchileda sauce on top first (this gives chilaquiles vibes) then add any topping your desire and enjoy!
*Also make sure that each component is seasoned to your liking. I seasoned the egg with salt and pepper and some chili power, the potatoes were left over from another meal so they had garlic and various seasonings on it. Just make sure you have enough flavor otherwise this joint is gonna be bland AF.
