After vacationing in Mexico, I really missed all of the incredible food. This is the breakfast that I ate nearly every day that I was there.

Hearty and satisfying, it was perfect for an active day of hiking and water sports. Filling enough for a light lunch or supper. Quick and easy, too!

This recipe I found on the back of a package of pepper jack cheese.
