Huevos Rancheros

A classic made healthy


4 organic corn tortillas

1 pound ripe tomatoes, coarsely chopped

2 serrano peppers, chopped

1 large clove garlic, peeled and smashed

1/2 small onion, chopped

1 1/2 Tbsp canola oil

salt, to taste

fresh ground black pepper, to taste

4 large eggs

chopped cilantro for garnish

Queso fresco if you like



1. Preheat oven to 350°F, place corn tortillas wrapped in foil in oven for 10-15 minutes to warm through

2. Place the tomatoes, chili peppers, garlic, onion in a blender.  Blend but retain some texture

3. Heat 1 Tbsp oil in a large heavy non stick pan on high heat. Add the tomato mixture and cook, stirring frequently for 10-15 minutes.  The sauce will darken, thicken and start to stick just a little bit when it is ready.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.

4. Warm your plates in the oven, fry your eggs in a non-stick skillet (less oil required).  Cook them sunny-side up , until the whites are solid and the yolks are set but still runny.  Season with salt and pepper, remove from heat. Place 2 warmed tortillas on each plate, top with fried eggs.  Spoon your salsa over the whites and the tortillas and garnish with cilantro (and queso fresco if you like) and serve.
