Breakfast for lunch, or dinner anyone?  Most people are pretty set in their ways for breakfast.  Busy mornings generally call for un-fussy meals, but you might be tempted to set your alarm clock 15 minutes early just to make this delicious Mexican favorite (or hit snooze and make it for dinner).  Either way, your taste buds will be awoken by the different textures and layers of flavor in this super clean, gluten-free and dairy-free recipe.  It takes less than 15 minutes to whip it up, and it is perfectly balanced with the correct macro nutrients.
