Huevos Rancheros

Prepare the flavors of Huevos Rancheros, a dish that blends breakfast and dinner in a tasty way. Picture eggs, beans, and more coming together for a flavor-packed meal, stepping away from the usual morning routine.

To create this dish, gather simple ingredients like eggs, black beans, corn, onion, garlic, bell pepper, diced tomatoes, and green chilies. These elements mix to form a hearty salsa bursting with savory goodness.

Start by sautéing chopped onions, garlic, and bell peppers until soft and fragrant. Add diced tomatoes, green chilies, cumin, chili powder, salt, and pepper, letting the mixture simmer to fill your kitchen with inviting aromas.

Toss in black beans and corn, letting them soak up the flavors. Warm flour tortillas in a skillet, giving them a cozy touch before joining the party.

Now, crack eggs into the salsa, creating pockets of deliciousness. Cover the skillet and let the eggs cook to your liking.

Assemble your creation by placing a tortilla on each plate, spooning the bean and egg mix on top, and sprinkling with shredded cheese. Add fresh cilantro for an extra pop of flavor.

With around 400 calories per serving, this Huevos Rancheros is not only tasty but also satisfying. Feel free to add your twists, like sour cream or avocado slices. Enjoy a laid-back breakfast-for-dinner experience that might just become a favorite!
