Quieres Huevos Rancheros?

46 comments /
Yo quiero Huevos Rancheros!! Okay, apparently I'm all about simple lately...because this is yet another easy, but delicious dish. This month's Second Sunday San Antonio recipe, Huevos Rancheros was chosen by Spryte of Spryte's Place. Eggs with Ranchero Salsa is something we eat often and without thought around our house. I make a few versions of Ranchero Sauce...that I usually just refer to as blender salsa because A) there is no chopping involved, B) it's tasty & quick and C) It keeps well in the refrigerator. It is also one of those things that has no "set" recipe...it changes a little bit every time. I've given a basic salsa verde recipe before...and now I'll give you the "recipe" for this specific ranchero sauce...which I changed from Gloria's recipe (can't help myself Gloria). Please click here to see Gloria's recipe from her book Foods and Flavors of San Antonio...and cook along with us this month...it's quick and delicious!
Huevos Rancheros
Ranchero Sauce w/ Avocado:
1 tomato
5 tomatillos, husked & rinsed
3 cloves garlic, peeled
2 jalapenos
4 dried puya chiles
1/4 c. water
sea salt
1 avocado, diced
1/2 small red onion, small dice
small handful cilantro, rough chop
For the rest:
butter
eggs
corn tortillas
First, make the ranchero sauce...Place tomato, tomatillos, garlic, jalepenos & dried chiles in medium pot and add water to just cover. Simmer gently until just tender. Remove veggies to a blender jar and add 1/4 cup of water. Blend until smooth.
Add avocado, red onion and cilantro.
Season to taste with salt. Set aside and make eggs and tortillas...it goes quickly...you're almost done!
Drop a pat of butter into small saute pan. Once it begins to form little bubbles, crack in an egg or two. Once the eggs have begun to set on this side, give them a quick flip. Cook another minute or so, depending on how you like your eggs. For the tortillas, I just turn on the flame on the stove and set a couple of tortillas over each one, flipping and moving until warm and browned the way you like them. Place the tortillas on your plate, slide the eggs on top of the tortillas, then spoon the Ranchero Sauce over the top of it all. Ricos! Ready for breakfast??? Or lunch or dinner for that matter! Join us for Second Sunday San Antonio....Huevos Rancheros roundup will be posted August 9th over at Foods & Flavors of San Antonio.

  14. This post seriously made my mouth water! I'm literally drooling here. What a great combo of flavors! I've only had huevos rancheros once. My friend, Moreno's mom came all the way from California to visit us at college. She made some fabulous huevos rancheros one morning for breakfast. It looks like yours could rival hers...

  25. I'm really looking forward to trying your salsa verde if I can tone down the heat enough for hubby (half of a seeded jalapeno in a big pot of something is way too spicy for him).

    ReplyDelete
  26. Sure is a lot more interesting than poached egg on toast, which is my standby breakfast LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  27. In Texas many friends and I would stop in for this at a local hole in the wall after a night of dancing and drinks...can be better than a bloody mary for a hangover...those days are gone, but not the love for it!

    Ummm I think I have all the ingredients for breakfast tomorrow...your fault, lol!
