Over-the-top huevos rancheros breakfast waffle stack

Hi, I'm Gina. I like food. A lot. That's what you'll find on Running to the Kitchen with the occasional smattering of fitness, sarcasm & weimaraners. 

Flavors of Mexico for breakfast

Decadent, savory breakfast waffles go Mexican, complete with cheese, avocado, salsa, refried beans and runny eggs.

Flavors of Mexico for breakfast

This breakfast is a Mexican food dream. If you're a fan of all the sides when it comes to a Mexican dinner, then you're going to love them piled high on waffles with a fried egg on top for breakfast. These make an excellent brunch because, if you're anything like me, it takes a few hours of being awake to be able to make refried beans. So save it for the weekend, and then dig in.
