One of the best parts of the cafeteria at the university where I earned my undergraduate degree is the "International" food station which show cases cuisine from a variety of cultures throughout the year and that food station is where I was first introduced to huevos rancheros.
The huevos rancheros I had was made up of a warm tortilla painted with refried beans, an over easy egg on top with cheese. Deliciosa!
Through my research I have discovered that there are a variety of ways to make this dish with a wide variety of ingredients. My personal favorite variation is huevos divorciados (divorced eggs) which is the basic huevos rancheros recipe, but one egg has a red chile sauce and the other a green chile sauce.
My huevos divorciados is quite a bit Americanized by the cheese and sour cream, but easy to make nonetheless.
-Salsa (Red and Green)
-Salt and Pepper to taste
|Heat tortillas in a skillet while you fry two eggs.
If the eggs are done before the tortillas take them off the heat.
|Spread some refried beans onto the warmed tortillas and then top each tortilla with an egg.
|Heat up salsa in the pans used for the tortillas and eggs.
|If you're looking for a good green salsa I use Pace Garlic & Lime Verde.
|Top one egg with the green salsa and one with the red.
|The red salsa.
|The green salsa (I love the Garlic Lime Verde so I used more green).
|Garnish with shredded cheese and sour cream as desired.
