Huevos Rancheros Recipe

Weekends are a great time for big breakfasts.  I’m a huge fan of breakfast, especially big, tasty breakfasts. A couple of weeks ago I made huevos rancheros for Jeremy and me, and we loved it!  Nothing like a tasty Southwestern meal topped with eggs.  Perfect!  I typically order huevos rancheros when I see it on a menu, it’s one of my favorite breakfast dishes.

I’ll start with this: overall, this dish is fairly easy to make, but it does require 5 different components:  Spanish rice, refried beans, ranchero sauce, fried tortillas and sunny-side up eggs.  It also requires a full hour of active cooking time.  BUT don’t let that scare you off. All of the dishes are very easy to make, and the end result is so tasty, it will be worth the effort.  Promise, cross my heart.
