Whenever I have an unexpected crowd stop by my home for breakfast, I like to lay out a delicious taco spread, also known as a "taquiza." A taquiza consists of various taco fillings for your guests to prepare a taco according to their preferences. From scrambled eggs, potatoes with chorizo to beans, cheese and nopalitos, everyone will walk away with a belly full of their favorite breakfast taco. To spice things up, I like to include condiments such as a variety of salsas, pico de gallo, crumbled cheeses and whole Serrano chiles. Next time you have guests over for breakfast or brunch, plan a simple taquiza with readily available ingredients that can be cooked quickly. This no-fail plan is inexpensive and a guaranteed success.
