Eggs Barbacoa


Ingredients:
  • 1 (15-ounce) can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
  • 6 tablespoons bottled low-sodium salsa (such as Green Mountain Gringo), divided
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 8 (6-inch) corn tortillas
  • Cooking spray
  • 4 large eggs
  • teaspoon kosher salt
  • teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup*hot Beef Barbacoa
  • cup (2 ounces) queso fresco, crumbled
  • cup finely chopped green onions
  • cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 4 lime wedges
Instructions:

Place beans in a food processor; process until smooth. Combine beans, 2 tablespoons salsa, and 2 tablespoons water in a small saucepan over low heat until warm, stirring occasionally. Keep warm.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Lightly coat both sides of each tortilla with cooking spray. Place 1 tortilla in pan, and cook for 30 seconds on each side or until toasted. Repeat procedure with remaining tortillas.

Add water to a large skillet, filling two-thirds full; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer. Break 1 egg into each of 4 (6-ounce) custard cups coated with cooking spray. Place custard cups in simmering water in pan. Cover pan; cook 8 minutes. Remove custard cups from water. Sprinkle salt and pepper evenly over eggs.

Place 2 tortillas on each of 4 plates, and top each tortilla with 2 tablespoons bean mixture. Top beans with 2 tablespoons Beef Barbacoa. Place 1 poached egg on each plate so it overlaps both tortillas. Top each serving with 1 tablespoon remaining salsa. Sprinkle each serving with 2 tablespoons cheese, 1 tablespoon green onions, and 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro. Serve with lime wedges.

This was accompanied by a mixed fruit salad, Mexican rice, and pear bellinis
Sorry, Sir Loin, but I need to ask what barbacoa is. Reading this before breakfast has created a drool event.

Breakfast this morning was a real treat. I cut out the neck stuffing chunk from yesterday's turkey, peeled off the skin, sliced it and put it on a bed of the wonderful giblet gravy and nuked it. I felt so special that I got to eat the whole chunk.

I don't think I'll use the bacon fat to cook up the onions and celery again. It was really, really good, but didn't have that traditional taste I was looking forward to.

Place a slice of fresh bread in with the rock of brown sugar and it will soften up in a matter of an hour or so.
