My favorite breakfast food to order out is huevos rancheros. The best place I’ve found it in Bend is at the Victorian Cafe: vegetarian huevos rancheros: two blue corn tortillas with eggs-over-easy, vegetarian chili, black beans, cheese and avocado.
After reading Smitten Kitchen’s post on these delights, I elected to try my novice hand at it. I added avocado and sour cream…it was delicious and my sweetie asked for seconds.
This dish is easy, cheap and sure to get you rave reviews in the kitchen. Maybe for a special sleepover?
Heat a nonstick skillet over medium. Add a drop of olive oil and one corn tortilla. Once it starts to bubble or brown, flip it and add a sprinkling of cheese (whatever you life, but try the Mexican kind). Once the cheese begins to melt, crack and egg on top. Wait until it starts to turn white at the edges and flip it over as best you can. It’s OK if the yolk isn’t center, just don’t break it!
Sprinkle cheese on the other side and cook until the egg is at your desired firmness. Slide onto a plate, then top with more cheese, black beans (cooked with a little cumin), your favorite salsa, sour cream, avocado and hot sauce. Some pan-fried Mexican chorizo would be delicious, too, and I’ve found it at Newport Market and Albertsons (or any store that sees a lot of Hispanic customers).
