huevos rancheros

I'm a strong believer that everything tastes better in a tortilla, or in this case - on a tortilla. Huevos rancheros, or ranch style eggs, is a relatively easy and delicious breakfast dish. Top a corn tortilla with a fried egg and salsa - done! If that isn't simple, I don't know what is. If you order this dish in Mexico, you may receive the plate with refried beans, rice and guacamole or avocado.
Not really needing a massive meal my only addition was a layer of cheese below the egg. With so many salsa and cheese options, it can be a very creative and personal dish. For example, if you enjoy salsa verde, feel free to indulge in huevos divorciados one day. Top one egg with your regular salsa, the second egg with salsa verde and divide the two with a wall of refried beans. Enjoy.

The picture below is how I normally cook my eggs for this dish and my egg sandwiches. I have a few versions of these rings and consider them a great piece of kitchen magic. In saying that, I still haven't attempted the microwave version.

Everything tastes better with salsa too.

Oh for sure Cheryl. I find myself either dipping or scooping salsa on to most things I eat. It goes with vegetables and proteins so well.

I'm tempted to draw a nose and a goofy smile with that last photo :)

I agree, things seem to taste better when you wrap them up... whether in a tortilla or pita... just the way it is :)
