Huevos Rancheros

I grew up in the southwest area of America until I was about 16 years old. We loved the trips we took to Mexico as a family and it certainly began a life long passion of travel that I still have today.

One of the dishes I have rediscovered is Huevos Rancheros.. My cousin makes it faithfully every year on New Years morning and we have happily been on the receiving end for 2 years now.
We love breakfast, and so we were delighted to have another yummy, cost friendly idea for brunch. It's fresh flavors are a lovely way to start out your day, but you can also make it for dinner too!

For this recipe I will tell you how to prepare it for one person.
Feel free to email me with any questions or comments! I love to hear from you!

 2 tortillas and eggs serve one person


2 corn tortillas
2 Eggs
3 Tbs of refried beans beans...or make your own by simply crushing whole canned beans with some seasoning and butter!! YUMMO!
4 Tbs of shredded cheese
4 slices of avocado
3 Tbs of Salsa
A few sprigs of fresh cilantro/coriander
Frying oil
1 Tbs of sour cream

* Lightly fry your corn tortillas and place on a paper towel to cool
* Heat up your refried beans in a small pan
Poach or fry your eggs
* Move your oven rack up to its highest point and turn your oven on broil
* Assemble your Huevos Rancheros by first placing your corn tortillas in the baking dish, add your beans to the top, add your eggs, add your cheese and salsa
*Pop into the oven and allow to brown and the cheese to melt, about 5 minutes
*Dress with slices of avocado, cilantro and sour cream

***I also fry some potatoes like in my recipe under brunch labeled eggs florentine.. minus the tumeric... and fry up some bacon!

Hi Rebecca, thanks for your comments on my blog, because of which I could find yours :-)...will be following you pronto...I liked your eggs benedict recipe especially...also love the way you always connect things with your family! And btw, you look absolutely stunning!

Serving sizes and this sight.....

As many of you have come to realize, I am usually making huge amounts of food and alot of times for more than just my family. However, I would be horrified to think that someone who was living alone, or with only a couple people in their home would feel discouraged about this..
Simply use division for most of these recipes if they are too big. With the exception of baking, which requires a fair amount of science, these recipes can be adjusted and modified with ease! And if you feel stuck, either leave me a comment or email me and I will try to respond to you as soon as I can.
Thanks fellow foodies, hope you eat something yummy today and enjoy the fact that you didn't spend lots of money at a high end restaurant!

Enjoy! I love to hear from you all!
