Huevos Frijole Rancheros

If you saw last night's blog, you know I made some yummy fish tacos. Well, as usual, I made too much rice and beans and decided to use some of them up for tonight's dinner. With corn tortillas, rice and beans, cheese and salsa, I knew exactly what I wanted to make - Huevos Rancheros (or at least my east coast American version). I added a side of blue & white potato's for a full meal. Scrumptious!

(Serves 2)

Huevos Rancheros
3 corn tortillas
1/2 C rice & beans mixture
2 eggs
4 T butter
salt & pepper
shredded cheese (optional, NOT traditional)

Warm oven to 300. In a frying pan melt 2 T butter and fry 2 of the corn tortillas on each side. Slice third tortilla into 1 inch strips and fry. Place each whole tortilla on baking sheet and spread with 1/2 the rice & beans mixture. Put the sliced tortilla on the sheet to the side. Place in warmed oven.

Fry an egg on 1 side, leaving yoke runny (if you like, if not, by all means fry it up!). Gently slide egg onto tortilla and bean mixture and place back in warm oven. While that's finishing, cook up the side.

Blue & White Homefries
2 potato's - one white, one blue (if available, if not, use any potatoes you have), peeled & diced
1 small onion, peeled & sliced
salt & pepper
2 T butter

Melt butter in skillet over medium heat and add potatoes. Cook for 5 minutes until they start to brown. Add onions, salt and pepper and stir thoroughly. Cook another 2-3 minutes.

Serve on the side of a plate with ranchero. Top everything with cheese, fried tortilla strips and salsa! Devour with a good beer.
