Machacado "con huevo" or in english known as "with egg" is a dish that consists of processed dried beef. When any Mexican dish is labeled as "a la Mexicana" it usually tends to mean it's a bit spicy and contains peppers, onions, and tomatoes. Machacado con huevo is one of my most favorite Mexican breakfast dishes growing up as a kid, and well I can probably still say that it's probably still my favorite dish today.
