My take on Huevos Rancheros
I started out with another tortilla cutout (like on the quesadilla burger), sprayed a Pyrex bowl, and put the tortilla in the bowl. I used the bowl that was used to cut out the shape of the tortilla. This way it just has a slight raised edge after being baked. Then I add refried beans, Fire sauce from Taco Bell (you can use a sauce made from canned tomato sauce and a good amount of cumin to get a nicely flavored sauce without the heat), salsa, and cheese.
While that’s in the oven, I poach an egg (I’ve noticed most Huevos Rancheros recipes use a fried or baked egg. I personally prefer poached because the whites are fluffy and you still get a runny yolk without having that nasty butter crisp on the whites).
The easiest way to poach an egg is to put about half a cup of white vinegar in the water. The vinegar helps the egg white stay together. Then just stir gently around the edges of the pot and let it boil until the white is firm.
After all of this was done, I put the egg on the baked tortilla (and its friends) and threw some chopped green onion and my chili con queso on there with a tiny bit of seasoned salt and ground black pepper.
Obviously those toppings are optional. I’ve heard this meal is delicious with black olives and lettuce, and I’ve also had it with chopped tomatoes on top.
Be creative with it, and enjoy! <3
