Coffee Cup Chilaquiles

My mom is a thoughtful gal. She knows I'm always trying new recipes, so when she read an article in her local newspaper (The Buffalo News...three cheers for western New York!) about cooking in a coffee cup, she clipped it out for me. And when she and my sister came for Easter, we gave it a whirl.

In case you were curious, coffee cup cooking is...(long pause while I try to think of an adjective that starts with "c")...great! Without any fancy ingredients or equipment, you can enjoy a healthy and delicious breakfast in three minutes. And it's much more fun than a bowl of cereal. (Says the girl who could eat cereal for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.)

Monday morning when you think you don't have time to eat, grab a mug and throw together Coffee Cup Chilaquiles, which is sort of like a Mexican omelette with tortilla chips. Jazz it up with your favorite taco toppings...salsa, guacamole, sour cream. And you'll still make it to your 9:00 a.m. conference call on time.

Let's make breakfast!

P.S. That fabulous manicure belongs to my sister. She has the best nails! Over and out.
