Dangerously Daydreaming

"All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible." ~ T. E. Lawrence

Tasty Tuesdays: Huevos Rancheros

This is the good stuff, the “rei” (Spanish for “king”) of breakfasts!  It’s easy to make, delicious, and hits the spot when you’re craving Mexican cuisine.  I made this last Saturday and it was great to fuel us for the busy weekend.  So without further ado, let’s dig in.

What you need (serves 4):

  • 8 eggs
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil (or olive oil) – divided
  • 1 16 oz can refried beans
  • 1 12 oz tube beef chorizo (leave this out for a vegetarian version)
  • 2 roma tomatoes – diced
  • 3 green onions – chopped
  • 4 oz cheddar or pepper jack cheese – shredded
  • 8 tortillas

What you do:

In a skillet over medium heat cook chorizo.  Drain of excess grease as needed.

In a separate skillet on medium low add oil and cook eggs over-easy.  Set aside when done.

In a sauce pan on medium heat, warm refried beans.

Warm tortillas in a skillet on the stove top.

Spread refried beans over top of tortillas.  Place over-easy egg on tortilla.  Scoop two spoonfuls of chorizo over egg and garnish with tomatoes, green onions, and cheese.

Serve and enjoy!
