Huevos Rancheros

I haven't posted a recipe in a long time. I actually haven't been cooking a ton of new food lately. I have been lazy and have relied on old favorites. I did make a yummy dinner last night, but forgot to take a picture, but I'll post the recipe anyway because it was so good and easy and inexpensive.

I don't remember where the original recipe came from, I think it was Bon Appetit, but I can't find it on their web page. I altered it anyway, so here is my version of

Picture from
Huevos Rancheros
6 teaspoons minced garlic or 6 garlic cloves
6 T oil, divided

2 cans of black bean, undrained

2 cans diced tomatoes ( I used one with green chiles and one just plain)
1 1/2 c diced onion
half bunch cilantro
1-2 tsp. diced chile adobo (it makes it pretty spicy but deliciously smoky)

10 corn tortillas, deep fried until crispy (or use tostada shells)
20 eggs, cooked anyway you like. (We mostly had them over easy)

Queso fresco or other cheese
Diced avocado

Heat 2T oil in small skillet. Sautee garlic on medium until soft. Mash if using whole cloves. Set aside.

Heat 4T oil in medium saucepan. Sautee onion until soft. Add tomatoes with juice and cilantro. Add half of the garlic and adobo, if using it. Simmer until thick. Salt and pepper to taste.

Heat undrained beans with remaining garlic. Heat through and mash slightly.

Cook eggs using desired method.

Place a tostada shell on plate. Top with a generous spoonful of beans. Gently place on 2 eggs. Top with a generous spoonful of sauce. Top with cheese and avocado if desired. A squeeze of lime is very good on top as well. Enjoy.

We ate our with potatoes fried with peppers and onions. Very delicious.

Oh darn! I just ate but I think I know what I'm gonna make tomorrow night! That really sounds yummy ... it's mexican, it has to be, right?

I sure love that quilt. Think that just might be something I need to make when I get old and retire ;-)

This is such a good idea! I love your recipes. Britton loves Huevos Divorceados, which is just huevos rancheros with half red salsa and half green. If you get a good recipe for green sauce let me know :)

That sounds delectable.

I tagged you.

LIzzy, Its Em! I'm so excited for Thanksgiving. If you haven't seen Twilight by the time we go I definitely want to see it again!

This looks great, I always love your recipes...though I prefer just to go to dinner at your house than cook them, it always turns out so much better that way :) We miss you guys.

I always enjoy reading your recipes. I'm looking for a new turkey recipe this year. Last year's turned out great but the whole family is asking for something new this year. Any ideas? Of all people I believe you would have an excellent one.

I don't know how often you check your comments, but I have to reply to your
comment on my blog. All I can say is Wow!concerning your Turkey trot and the family Thanksgiving Day. Sounds like it was as much fun as we had. Did I tell you that my brother (the one who had the heart transplant) lives in LaVerkin? He's just around the corner from you, right?

Hey Seniorita, lets plan on McDonalds tomorrow if that's ok. What time do you want to go?
