Two Peas and Their Pod: Recipe for Huevos Rancheros

Recipe for Huevos Rancheros

I usually don't make New Years resolutions, but I do like to set goals for January or any other month. Well, this year we set some goals as a couple and one of them was to eat more protein.

Most people get plenty of protein, but I don't eat meat, so I struggle with this sometimes. And since we cook and eat together, most of our meals are meatless. Poor Joshua. I don't care if he eats meat, it doesn't bug me, we just usually go the veggie route. I am glad he likes veggies:)

So I am trying to sneak more protein into our diets. We recently made huevos rancheros for dinner. It is traditionally served at breakfast, but I don't think I could stomach this in the morning. It is more of a lunch/dinner meal for me.

There are tons of variations of this meal, we really didn't follow a certain recipe, we just used our favorite flavors. We used flour tortillas and topped them with the goods. Josh fried up two eggs for his, but I used scrambled egg whites. We both used black beans, tomatoes, cheese, cilantro, avocado, and fresh lime juice.
I really liked this meal.

It was easy, filling, and loaded with protein!!

Huevos Rancheros

Flour tortillas
Eggs (or scrambled egg whites)
1 can of black beans (rinsed and drained, low sodium)
1/2 small onion, diced
Cumin, to taste
Diced tomatoes

Shredded cheese (we used Colby and Pepperjack, I go light on the cheese, Josh loads it)

Avocado, diced

Fresh cilantro, chopped

Fresh lime juice

Heat up your tortillas. In a small sauce pan, warm up your black beans with the onion and cumin. Fry up your eggs or scramble your egg whites. Place the eggs on the flour tortilla. Top with the beans. Next, add all of your toppings-tomatoes, cheese, avocados, cilantro, and lime juice.

One of those TWD corn muffins would be great with these! Mimi's cafe has my favorite huevos rancheros, but they ARE so easy to make at home. These look de-lish!

I'd eat this for any meal! I was just thinking that I wish that I thought to serve the Dorie corn muffins with huevos rancheros. Next time, I will be sure to do that and try this recipe!

We love huevos rancheros in my house - I made some scarlet runner beans in mole a few weeks back, and I threw some in the freezer just so that we could have huevos rancheros with them.

This is one of my favorite breakfasts. I use corn torts and cover them with refried beans, then eggs, cheese, salsa, tomato, green onion and lots of chopped lettuce. Mmm, good!
