    DJ BBQ's Day of the Dead quesadillas

Beat the morning after the night before with this booze-busting breakfast from heaven...


Preparation time
25 mins

A handful of potatoes, diced
Olive oil
1 red onion, diced
2 peppers, red and yellow, diced
3 tomatoes, deseeded
1 chorizo sausage, diced
2 eggs
Salt and pepper
A bunch of coriander
4 flour tortillas
Sour cream
3 avocados
1 deseeded red chilli
1 lime

Serves 2-4


“Nobody ever did anything awesome on a hangover. Ever. And I don’t have to tell you how hard hangovers suck, especially after the Christmas party season when we were all so damn pumped to stick our heads in the communal punch and inhale until we puked.

“But your morning after doesn’t have to be a dick. No way – not when you’ve got this on your plate to sort yourself out. This breakfast is the one. Not only is the salt from the chorizo gonna replenish all those salts you pissed out the night before, but it won’t use up your remaining brainpower to make or eat.

“Forget using any forks and knives – just scoop this mother up with your hands. Make a tortilla sandwich! If this doesn’t sort you out, then shit, I’ll come over there and massage your brain myself.”

01 Boil your spuds

Throw your potatoes into a pan of salted boiling water for 8 mins, then fry them in oil until they start to turn brown, and remove. “You gotta do these on their own, because the water from the pepper and onion will stop them browning up,” says DJ BBQ. 

02 Mix it up

Add three-quarters of the red onion, the peppers and two of the tomatoes to the pan. Cook for 5 mins, then remove and set aside with your potatoes. Add the chorizo to the pan and fry it until it browns and the juices run out. “Now put everything back in, and look at that mosh pit of breakfast awesomeness,” says our American breakfast pro.

03 Just add eggs

Your mouth should be watering on an oceanic scale by now. Make a well in the middle of your mix and crack the eggs into it. Fry them until the white is cooked, then season with salt and pepper and add chopped coriander. “Serve with tortillas, sour cream and fresh guacamole and kick that hangover in the butt,” DJ BBQ advises.

BONUS POINTS: Make a killer guacamole by mixing the avocados, one tomato, the chilli and the leftover onion, then squeeze the lime over the top.
