About the history of this dish, it is said that Governor Felipe Carrillo Puerto visited the town of Motul, where he was from, to take a delegation to see a cenote near the place.
In an improvised way, the governor and revolutionary leader decided to eat there together with his guests.
Chef Jorge Siqueff, who was traveling with the governor, not having complete dishes, decided to put fried eggs, beans, peas and tomato sauce on a single plate .
Carrillo Puerto was accompanied by José Vasconcelos, Diego Rivera and other personalities who were delighted with the dish. History says that when Vasconcelos asked what dish it was, Puerto pointed out: “they are authentic Motuleños eggs”.
