A Curious Coupling … That Works

For the morning after Valentine’s … What Wine Goes with Breakfast Tacos?

One of the things that I crave the most when I’m traveling in Europe is homemade breakfast tacos made with handmade white flour tortillas by Central Market. And so, when I recently returned from a two-week (and too long) trip to Italy, this staple of Tex-Mex gastronomy was at the top of my list: freshly made white flour tortillas, thinly sliced Colby Jack, eggs hard-scrambled with nutmeg and freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano (my Italian twist), Goya frijoles negros (Goya, de rigueur), Herdez salsa casera (I recommend using the canned salsa although the bottled is also good) and creamy Texas-style guacamole (as opposed to the California chunky style that I grew up with).
