Take a look at this pic — see that bowl of green goodness in the center? That’s the Homemade Jalapeno Sauce and it’s the key to this breakfast platter. Everything else in that pic is negotiable…but not the Jalapeno Sauce! Here's how to make this great breakfast...
You’ll need a half pound of fresh jalapenos, that’s usually about five medium-sized jalapenos. And yes, five jalapenos will give your sauce some heat! But the acidity of the vinegar will temper the heat, so don’t worry about it being overwhelming.
Start by sweating 1/4 onion and a single garlic clove in some oil over medium heat. Once the onion is browning you can add: 1 teaspoon Mexican oregano 1/4 teaspoon cumin (optional) freshly cracked black pepper
Let these aromatics heat up for a couple minutes and then add the remaining ingredients: the rinsed, de-stemmed jalapenos 1/4 cup white vinegar 1/4 cup water 1/4 teaspoon salt
Bring this up to temp over medium heat and let it simmer for a couple minutes. Then add it all to a blender along with: 6-8 cilantro sprigs the juice of 1 lime
Give it a whirl and say hello to your Homemade Jalapeno Sauce! It’s got a vibrant, delicious flavor along with some zipppp from the jalapenos. Once you’ve got this Jalapeno Sauce on hand then everything else on this breakfast platter is negotiable, so feel free to get creative with the fixings.
For this batch I roasted a cubed potato in the oven after coating it with oil and chile powder. The potatoes take about 30-40 minutes in the oven, so if you want some roasted papas it’s always best to start them first.
I also made some crispy, cheesy corn tortillas for this batch. Simply add 4 corn tortillas to a dry skillet over medium heat. Add some cheese to half of the tortilla. I also added thinly sliced tomato to each of them. Once the tortillas are warm you can fold them in half and cook each side until they are getting crispy.
I also scrambled 6 eggs in plain ol’ butter and cooked some bacon in the oven for this batch. Once the eggs are done it’s time to serve everything up! Be sure to put the Jalapeno Sauce in the center as that's the key to this breakfast!
Dipping the crispy, cheesy tortillas in the Jalapeno Sauce is my favorite part :) Okay, I hope you try out this Jalapeno Breakfast at some point.
