7am: Steam is rising from this hearty bowl of red, which packs enough spice to wake up one's taste buds but not kill them.

A San Antonio breakfast favorite: chorizo and eggs. In the background on the plate are refried beans and potatoes.

At 6:59am, one minute before opening, the July San Antonio air was so hot and humid that it fogged up my camera lens the moment I stepped from the car.

This photo doesn't show how moist, spicy and delicious the chorizo and egg filling is, but it does give an indication of just how excellent the tortilla is that contains it.
