I never skip breakfast, but I tend to be somewhat of a broken record. My usual breakfast is an egg sandwich (or overnight oats) with iced coffee … pretty much every day. I love this simple morning routine, but once in awhile I like to make a meal that’s a little more exciting.

One way that I change things up is by adding a delicious Mexican twist to ordinary breakfast foods, like scrambled eggs. It’s easy to do with the right ingredients, like crunchy tostadas, homemade refried beans, and tasty La Vaquita® Queso Fresco.

My favorite breakfast lately are these yummy Mexican Breakfast Tostadas. They’re the perfect way to shake up your morning routine!

They’re fresh tasting and full of flavor, plus simple to make.

The first step is making the tostadas from corn tortillas. It couldn’t be easier to bake the homemade tostadas, but if you want to skip a step, you can find ready made tostadas in many grocery stores.

The crunchy tostadas get topped with my easy and delicious homemade refried black beans, scrambled eggs, tomatoes, and avocado. A sprinkle of queso fresco and a few dashes of hot sauce complete the dish. The whole meal takes minutes to make and is so tasty!

A generous crumble of this fresh cheese, that’s hand wrapped in Texas, is an easy way to add authentic Mexican flavor to any recipe.

I love the story (which represents traditions handed down through generations of Mexican homestead cheese-makers) behind La Vaquita®! In 1971, Maria Castro, who newly emigrated from the state of San Luis Potosi, Mexico began making queso fresco in her Houston home. Her artisanal, small-batch process was based on a recipe she learned from her grandmother on their family farm in Mexico. Word quickly spread among friends and neighbors about the authenticity and quality of Maria’s cheese and requests for it began to trickle in.

Queso fresco is a mild tasting, fresh cheese that’s meant for crumbling (not melting). Try crumbling a little La Vaquita® Queso Fresco on your favorite dish for a little Mexican flair!
