Chilaquiles

Maybe I'm just swimming in Spicehound's wake . . . . First meal in the new place was an easy one as kitchen items are coming in one box at a time. After visiting Pzzaz! in Rocky River, a great little store that primarily carries salsas, hot sauces, and rubs, I wound up with some CaJohns Raspberry Chipotle Salsa (from Columbus, OH--it may not say on the label, but rumor has it that the salsa contains local raspberries) and some great organic blue corn tortilla chips (from Toledo). Cowboy George, the store's proprietor, is shockingly aware of what his products are made of. While I'm normally a traditionalist, and the thought of raspberry salsa grossed me out, I was really surprised at how much I enjoyed the salsa. It also worked great for breakfast.

This was just some heated salsa with chips stirred in. After the chips were soft I cracked two Plum Creek eggs on top, added some salt and pepper, and threw the pan into a 400 degree oven for about 10 minutes. At that point the egg whites set up a bit and I slid the whole mix onto a plate for a pretty hardy breakfast.

After breakfast a friend came over. We had some Gypsy coffee, picked the rest of the ripe peaches off one of the trees in the yard, and walked over to the Ward 17 Farmer's Market at W65th and W. Clinton. I think I like the new neighborhood.

glad you got those peaches. This sounds delicious. I must say I did a melon bread pudding last week (I just got to your melon post.) it was delicious.

OHMom, no need to be jealous. It shouldn't be too tough to plant your own.
