Huevos Rancheros

Huevos RancherosA traditional south-of-the-border, ranch-style egg dish served for breakfast, brunch or supper.

Recipe Ingredients:

4 teaspoons vegetable oil or melted butter - divided use
2 (7 to 8-inch) flour tortillas
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
4 large eggs
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Wisconsin Pepperjack, Monterey Jack or Cheddar Cheese - divided use
1/3 cup medium or hot salsa
2 tablespoons tomato catsup
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro or thinly sliced green onions

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (205°C).
  2. Brush 2 teaspoons of the oil over one side of tortillas. Sprinkle chili powder over tortillas; place on a baking or cookie sheet. Bake until crisp and golden brown, about 8 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, heat remaining 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add eggs. Cover skillet; cook until eggs are just set, 3 to 4 minutes.
  4. Transfer tortillas to two serving plates; top each with 1/4 cup of the cheese and two eggs.
  5. Combine salsa and catsup in same skillet. Stir well and heat over high heat until hot. Spoon mixture over eggs; top with remaining cheese and cilantro.

Serves 2.

Variation: 1 cup heated canned refried beans may be spread over the tortillas before adding eggs. Garnish with diced ripe avocado, if desired.
