Step Two: Huevos Rancheros

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 (6 inch) corn tortillas
  • 1 cup re-fried or black beans with green chilies
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup salsa (optional)

Cooking Instructions:

  1. Heat oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Fry tortillas one at a time until firm, but not crisp. Place on paper towels to drain grease.
  3. Combine the beans and butter in a microwave-safe dish. Cover, and cook in the microwave until heated through.
  4. When tortillas are done, fry eggs over easy in the skillet.
  5. Add more oil if the tortillas have absorbed it all.
  6. Place tortillas onto plates, and spread a layer of beans on them.
  7. Top with cheese, a fried egg and salsa.

For our concoction we merely made the eggs in a basket as mentioned to replace the tortilla step in the huevos rancheros recipe. Then topped with the ingredients from the rancheros recipe – beans, cheese, salsa.
