Happy Friday friends!
Huevos rancheros was my first “adult” breakfast obsession. You know, when you finally stop ordering ridiculously sugary sweet things for breakfast like belgium waffles with strawberries and whipped cream and buckets of maple syrup and venture into the world of savory breakfasts, or those ones with the eggs, as my child self would refer to them. Huevos rancheros was the logical transition breakfast for me since, as you know, beans and tortillas are pantry staples that make multiple weekly appearances here in our household.
Unlike yesterday’s 5 minute recipe, this breakfast does take a little love and time to prepare which may not always be on your wish list on a weekend morning. But if you’re willing to roll out of bed and into your kitchen, l really can’t think of a better way to start the day. It’s also a great brunch item since it sort of bridges the gap between breakfast and lunch–a win, win for everyone!
By the way, these are pretty dang spicy–cut back on the jalapenos if you want a little less heat.
So if you’re looking for a little adventure and flavor this weekend, why not kick it off with some homemade huevos rancheros?
Huevos Rancheros Recipe
4 eggs over easy
4 corn tortillas
2 green onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 can black beans, rinsed
1/2 small white onion, chopped
2 jalapenos, chopped
1/2 can diced tomatoes with juice
1/2 cup vegetable broth
1 teaspoon salt
1 sprig oregano
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 lime, juiced
1/4 cup feta cheese
In a small frying pan, saute onions and jalapenos in olive oil until onions are translucent.
Add tomatoes, with their juice, and vegetable broth, and let reduce for 3-4 minutes.
Season with salt, oregano, cumin, cayenne pepper, and lime juice.
In a separate pan, cook you eggs over easy (this is a great tutorial!). Sprinkle with feta cheese when cooked.
Heat black beans and tortillas ( I like to char my tortillas on the stove).
Assemble huevos rancheros by placing 1/4 of the beans on 1 tortilla, top with 1 egg, and 1/4 of the tomato sauce.
Finally, add a few green onions, and repeat.
Time: 15 minutes
