Ian's Huevos Rancheros

For Mother's Day, my husband took the helm in the kitchen and I was like YESSSSSSSSS.

He cooked, he cleaned, and did I mention that he'd also shopped for all of the ingredients? 


He made his version of huevos rancheros, a traditional Mexican breakfast dish. One of our favorites. Last night I told him I wanted to blog about it today, so he gave me the run-down:

H U E V O S    R A N C H E R O S

Ingredients:
Corn tortillas
Eggs
Refried beans
Salsa verde (green)
Sausage (chorizo is the traditional choice)
Avocado
White cheese (cotija is traditional and can be found at most grocery stores)
Black olives, sliced
Sour cream
Lime wedges
Cilantro, for garnish


He started off by warming up some refried beans on the stovetop in a pot. Then he heated some olive oil in a pan and browned the corn tortillas on each side. Onto a plate they went. Next he fried some eggs. I don't love a gooey runny yolk, so he fried mine over hard -- his was over easy. If you're adding sausage, you can throw this into the pan now to start warming it up. He used some leftover sausage we had from a meal earlier in the week, but chorizo is the traditional sausage choice.

Once the beans were heated and the eggs were cooked, he topped the corn tortillas with the beans, a fried egg or two, and poured salsa over top. He then added the sausage, avocado slices, some sliced black olives, crumbled white cheese, a hearty dollop of sour cream, and two lime wedges. We have cilantro growing in our raised cedar bed outside, so we garnished with that.

As we were devouring this breakfast, we also agreed it would make a perfect dinner as well! Full of protein from the beans and eggs, especially if you add sausage, too.
