On Saturday evening I went out and ran 22 miles. It was a total slugfest but I got through it by thinking of the great brunch I had on Saturday afternoon. I made oatmeal raisin pancakes with a fried egg and a slice of toast. It was fantastic.
So when on Sunday morning I woke up without any soreness and drove El Diablo out to the country to get a 1 hour recovery ride and 20 minute recovery run I had images of what I could use to refuel when I got home. For whatever reason my mind went straight to a Mexican breakfast. What should I make? Would I make migas with vegan chorizo? Would I make huevos rancheros? What would I make?
Then it hit me and I immediately called Karen to ask her if she went grocery shopping to get me a red onion and an avocado. I knew I had eggs and black beans in the fridge so the ingredients were there to make a great Mexican breakfast.
When I was done with the ride I called Karen and she had not gone to the grocery store as she had gone out to run. This was perfect for me as I stopped in and picked up 1 lime, cilantro, salsa verde, red onion, jalapenos and an avocado. Ingredients set and now to high tail it home to cook my recover breakfast. Here is the recipe for you.
