Huevos Rancheros

(2 servings)

  • 1/4 chopped onion
  • 16 oz can of tomatoes
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 4 tortillas
  • 4 eggs
  • Cooking oil
  • a pinch of chili powder
  • Chili peppers to taste
  • shredded Monterey to sprinkle on top
Chop the onion and chili peppers, and mash the garlic with a press (finely chop garlic if you don't have a press).

Set a small frying pan to mid-high heat. Add 1 dash of oil to the pan. Add the tomatoes, onion, garlic, chili powder and chilis. Once the sauce is boiling, reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes.

On a second, larger frying pan, fry two tortillas in a very small amount of cooking oil (about 30 seconds on each side). Put the tortillas on a plate.

Now fry two eggs without overcooking them or cooking the top of the egg. Place one egg on top of each tortilla and fully cover the eggs with the sauce. The sauce will cook the top of the egg. Repeat the frying process for the other eggs.

Serve with beans and some shredded cheese on top.

Huevos Rancheros is a Mexican classic.
