When I go to a Mexican restaurant for breakfast, I usually order huevos con chorizo, mainly becuase no one can make huevos rancheros like I can. Well, they could, really, but they just don't bother. I hate my beans refried, and I don't want rice for breakfast. Here is MY version of Huevos Rancheros:
CHEF CAINE'S HUEVOS DEL RANCHO SUPREMOS
Ingredients (for 2):
4 small or two large corn or flour tortillas
4 Tbs butter
2 cups of your favorite WHOLE beans. ( No refried beans please. That's gross!)
1 pound Mexican chorizo
1 cup shredded cheese of your choice
1 cup of your favorite salsa
1/2 cup sour cream (optional)
1/2 cup guacamole (optional)
Place beans in a saucepan on medium heat. Thoroughly cook chorizo in frying pan, then add to the beans, mix well, and keep warm on low heat. Melt 1Tbs butter in cast iron skillet or frying pan. Heat each tortilla in skillet until lightly brown on both sides, adding 1Tbs butter for each tortilla. Place one large tortilla or the two small tortillas side by side, on each plate. Spoon half of bean/chorizo mix over the tortillas. At the same time, place two eggs in a second frying pan with lid and keep lid on until eggs have a light white coating on yolks. Gently place eggs on top of beans, sprinkle 1/2 cup cheese on eggs, add 1/2 cup salsa on top of cheese, and garnish with sour cream and/or guacamole. Serve with a small mixed green salad with your favorite dressing, or a tropical fruit salad with honey yogurt dressing.
Oh, I make my own chorizo too. The commercial ones are too greasy and the meat all beut disappears when you cook it.
2 cloves mashed garlic
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon vinegar
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 pounds ground pork
2 Tbs cooking oil of choice
Mix everything together in a bowl, divide into thirds, roll each third into a log, and wrap in plastic wrap until needed. If you like it a little spicier, use New Mexico chili powder.
