AWED: Huevos Rancheros and a Recipe Marathon!!!

Dhivs: You really love Eggs, don't you? (a.k.a: Are you not sick of these egg recipes? huh?)

Me: *devilish smile* No way!!..I will not rest until I make all possible egg recipes, from every cuisine..;) hehehahaha!

... and Here I am with a classic, piquant Mexican breakfast - "Huevos Rancheros": meaning 'eggs ranch-style' or 'eggs country-style' in Spanish. To me, its bean mixture spread on a tortilla topped with a fried egg..! It a simple, delectable blend of Mexican flavors which serves as a great breakfast entree.

Adapted from here


1 tbsp Vegetable oil
1 medium Onion, finely chopped
2 cloves of Garlic, crushed
1 tbsp Hot sauce (Recommended: Chipotle Sauce)
1 tsp ground Cumin
1 can Tomatoes in juice, drained and chopped
1 can Red Kidney beans, rinsed and drained (Recommended: Black Beans)
Fresh Cilantro leaves, chopped
Salt to taste
1 tbsp Butter
4 large eggs
4 Wheat Tortillas, warmed (Recommended: Corn Tortillas)

P.S: Here some yummy home-made Whole Wheat Tortillas


1. In saucepan, heat oil on medium until hot. Add onion and garlic, and cook until beginning to brown. Stir in hot sauce and cumin; cook for 30 seconds, stirring.

2. Add tomatoes; cover and cook 3 minutes to blend flavors, stirring occasionally. Stir in beans, half of cilantro, and season with salt; heat through, about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.

3. Meanwhile, in a nonstick skillet, melt butter on medium heat. Crack eggs, 1 at a time, and drop into skillet. Sprinkle little salt over them. Cover skillet and cook eggs 4 to 5 minutes or until whites are set and yolks thicken.

4. Place tortillas on 4 dinner plates; top each with some bean mixture and 1 fried egg. Sprinkle some dry herbs. (oregano and rosemary) for extra flavor.

This is my final entry to dear Dhivya's AWED: Mexican event.
