Labor day weekend and Sunday afternoon Chilaquiles

This weekend we didn’t go out of town, we decided to spend it here at home going out to dinner and enjoying random things the south bay has to offer.

Saturday we went to get coffee with friends, swam for a short time, then decided to go to Mulligans and play Mini Golf. Which turned out to be a lot of fun!

Here’s the guys riding the go karts.

Sunday we spent more time at home, I made pancakes for breakfast (because I wanted to use my fresh farmers market blueberries), made chilaquiles for lunch, and saw 2016 Obama’s America.

So on to the chilaquiles, I had never had chilaquiles until about 6 months ago. Now I have had it a few times and I really like it. I decided to make mine with some extra veggies i had from the farmers market.

#1 – Cut up veggies ( I used mushrooms, bell pepper, and squash)

#2 – Sauté with a little oil, season to taste. ( I used salt, pepper, garlic salt, and chili powder)

#3 – While that is sautéing, whisk eggs with a little salt and pepper and set aside.
(I love these Rhode Island Red eggs I got from the farmers market)

#4 – When the veggies are cooked to your liking remove them. (they will be added back in later)

#5 – Add a little more oil to your hot pan.

#6 – Add day old tortilla chips. Sauté for 3-5 minutes in the oil.

#7 – Add your favorite tomato sauce or salsa and cook 3-5 more minutes.

  1. Looks delicious! I am going to try this. Today, so far, took a 2 hr walk around Pt. Fermin beautiful day. The park was starting to get big areas reserved for lots of BBQ’s. My friend and I started our walk from my house to Pt. Fermin Park, we walked down Paseo Del Mar for a while, turned around and walked to the look out at the end of Pacific Ave, walked around the bluff on Bluff St., my most favorite street in San Pedro, stopping to look at the view out towards Cabrillo beach, which is starting to gather the beach goers, took the 39th st stairs back up to Pacific Ave, on back to home. Later, my husband Rick and I are going to Granny’s Yogurt! (In keeping with Danielle’s theme…San Pedro is little Hollywood, do a lot of filming around here, I’ve seen many a big star! Love it!)
