Sedona Bed and Breakfast: What's for Breakfast?
Sedona Bed and Breakfast Hotels or Inns all have two things in common: a good nights sleep, and an authentic breakfast. We are not talking about your standard, pre-fabed hotel breakfast; we are talking about a freshly prepared meal that gets your day going, like the Cowboys enjoyed in the old west at the morning Chuckwagon.
Afterall, a good breakfast will kick start your day as you head off to enjoy one of the many Sedona Lodging Attractions. The Southwest Inn at Sedona recently received (for the 4th year in a row) an award for being Sedona's Top Rated Hotel. Part of that award came from our attention to the breakfast, which we serve.
Unlike many of the Hotels in Sedona, the Southwest Inn prepares their breakfast fresh everyday. We start off with freshly ground coffee; and then we present a mixture of healthy and organic choices, including: fresh yogurt, hard boiled eggs, organic cereals, fresh organic oatmeal or porridge, a selection of toasted breads, our Belgian Waffle, and our signature dish-the Taraumara Burrito.
The Taraumara Burrito is our own receipe, which comes from the ancient Taraumara Indian tribe that lived in the Copper Canyon of Mexico. These are the guys who would routinely run 60 to 100 miles--A DAY. The New York Times best selling book, Born to Run features the Taraumara Indians as their subject matter. Our guests often ask us for the receipe, so here it is, but be careful what you do with all of that renewed energy!
We use a rice cooker, which has a button labeled Brown Rice. Once all of the ingredients are mixed in, you simply push the Brown Rice button. Cooking time usually takes 1 and 1/2 hours.
This portion is what my family of 4 uses:
- Pour in 3 cups of water
- Mix in 3/4 cup of black beans, 1/4 cup of brown rice, and 1/4 cup of Chea Seeds and Quinoa.
- Mix in the following spices:
- 1 teaspoon of oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon of cumin
- 1 teaspoon of sea salt
- 1 tablespoon of chili powder
After this mixture has finished its cooking cycle, add the following fresh ingredients:
- 28 oz. of chopped tomatoes
- 4 oz of chopped green chilies
- 3 cups of fresh basil
- 4 chopped garlic cloves
Combine this mixture by folding it into a burrito and cook at 350 for 30 minutes. Before serving, you can add fresh salsa or sour cream, if you like. This is the basic receipe, which can be modified or altered in many ways. We would love to hear of any innovations that you come up with.
So next time you stay at one of the Sedona Bed and Breakfasts, please consider the Southwest Inn at Sedona, where you can enjoy one of our frehly prepared Taraumara Burritos.
