Huevos Rancheros


One of our favorite Meatless Monday meals! Huevos Rancheros are so fast and easy to make and each person in your family can create their own just the way they like it.  Of course my kids only like them with the tortilla, beans, and egg, and cheese.  They are so boring 🙂  How can you not love a plate that looks as gorgeous as this!

The only things your have to cook for this are your veggie pan salsa and your fried eggs.  I will let you in on a little secret.  When we are crunched for time, I just use a store bought fresh salsa, or my Home Made Restaurant Style Salsa, but I love the flavors of this quick pan salsa when we have the time.

Chop up your tomatoes, peppers, onions, and garlic and throw them in a non stick frying pan with a little non stick spray and some salt and pepper and chili powder.  Cook and stir on medium heat for about 5 minutes and then set aside.

Then I usually get my breakfast griddle out to fry my eggs so that I can cook 8 eggs at once.  Cook them how you like; hard fried, scrambled, or over easy.  

Open your can of refried beans and warm them in the microwave.  Now it’s time to layer!

Start with a warm corn tortilla (I warm them on the griddle).  Next, spread your beans on and top with your egg.  Scoop on your warm pan veggies.  Then I put on a hand full of cabbage slaw mix, sliced avocado, fresh cilantro, and feta cheese.  It would also be delicious with Mexican Cojita cheese, but since most people don’t have that on hand, I went with feta.  And there you have it! Quick, easy and full of fresh veggies. 🙂
