Huevos Rancheros

16 Jan

Ingredients:   Yields 4 servings

  • 3/4 pound ground sausage
  • 3 cups homemade tomato salsa or 1 @10oz can of RoTel diced tomatoes
  • 4 corn tortillas
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • 4 eggs
  • vegetable oil
  • 1 @ 4oz can chopped green chilies or chopped olives if you don’t like the green chilies
  • salt
  • pepper

In a skillet over medium heat brown sausage all the while breaking it down into crumbles.

Heat a 10″ skillet over medium heat and add about 1/8″ of vegetable oil. When vegetable oil is hot fry each corn tortilla separately until it is lightly browned, turning a couple of times during the process. Set aside on a paper towel to drain.

In a small covered sauce pan over medium low heat warm the tomato salsa.

When the tortillas are all fried, turn the heat down to medium low, wait about 5 minutes for the oil to cool then cracked all 4 eggs into the skillet. Season each one with salt and pepper and fry them. (When I am done frying the eggs I generally put them between 2 paper towels to blot off excess oil)

Assembly of the Huevos Rancheros:

  1. Place the fried tortilla on a plate or serving platter. Top with 1 tablespoon of salsa and distribute over the entire tortilla.
  2. Top with fried egg.
  3. Add 2 tablespoons of browned crumbled sausage.
  4. Top sausage with 1 more tablespoon of salsa.
  5. Sprinkle 1/4 cup of the Mexican cheese blend atop of everything.
  6. Finish all of that off with 2 teaspoons of chopped green chilies or olives. Whatever your preference is.
