Want the recipe that made the Mr into rocket man?
When we went to Napa for the first time, the Mr decided it was high time he try huevos rancheros. He loved it. So the first time I made it for him, he loved it and this is version #2 which I subbed black beans for hummus and added avocado. Here's what you'll need for one serving.
2 small corn tortillas
2 large eggs
1/2 small avocado
1/4 cup cooked black beans (from dry, not canned)
1 strip bacon (I use nitrate free 40% less fat)
1/4 cup pepper jack cheese
1/4 cup salsa
1 green onion, chopped
3 small peppers (I used thai chiles)
Fry the bacon and put it to the side. Keep the little bit of leftover oil in the pan.
Get your peppers, seed them, cut them into strips and fry them a little to make them soft and flavor the oil with some heat.
Cut up your strip of bacon into small pieces.
Put your tortillas into the oiled skillet over medium heat.
In another skillet, crack two eggs over medium low heat, add 1 tbsp of water and cover while you tend to your other ingredients.
Get a serving spoon and gently loosen the avocado from its skin. Remove the pit and cut into slices.
Flip over the tortillas. This is about how brown you want them to look.
Then it's time to layer!
Add your tortillas to a plate.
Add your avocado slices.
Sprinkle on half of your black beans.
A tablespoon of salsa to each tortilla.
Add your eggs on top.
Top with remaining salsa and black beans.
Add pepper jack cheese.
Garnish with green onion, bacon and peppers!
It looks like a heapin' mess but if you like Mexican food and would like a good, hearty breakfast to start your day, this is it. It clocks in around 650 calories but is full of protein and good fats.
