Huevos Rancheros

Huevos Rancheros make a real stick-to-your-ribs breakfast.  You can whip these up in no time at all.

Mexican ingredients are so widely available that you can get traditional corn tortillas, four tortillas, salsa, refried beans, jalapeno peppers and sour cream all ready to go.

Really this is as easy as frying eggs.

I like the stiffer corn tortillas in Huevos Rancheros but the flour ones will work too.   Use tortillas that are about 8″.

Slather the refried beans on the bottom of the tortilla so you get some in every delicious bit.

I actually like making my own black beans. I make a batch of these and then freeze them in 2 cup containers.

Serve the other condiments on the side. You can choose the level of spiciness you want by choosing mild, medium or picante salsa.

If you like a real bite to your meal you can add as many jalapeno peppers as you want on the side.

I like a hit of lime juice on top of the salsa and beans.  You can serve additional refried beans on the side if you like as well.

If you are serving a crowd get the condiments out on the table. Prep a number of tortillas with the refried beans.  Warm them in a 300 degree oven while you are frying the eggs. It’s okay if they get a bit crispy- they should be!
