Huevos Rancheros {Kind Of}

While these aren’t near authentic Huevos Rancheros, they are a nice twist on those wonderful Mexican Ranch Eggs. 

I tossed onion, zucchini, and cherry tomatoes in olive oil, oregano, salt and pepper and then roasted them for about 20 minutes until the onions were tender and the tomatoes began to burst. 

This mixture took the place of the traditional tomato-chili sauce and refried beans. 

You could substitute with whatever fresh veggies you have on hand, after all this is eat of the fridge/pantry week.

Warm corn tortillas in an oiled skillet then remove them to fry the eggs. 

To serve, we layered the corn tortillas with the roasted veggies, fried eggs, a sprinkling of grated cheese, jalapenos slices, fresh cilantro & scallions, and a dollop of sour cream.

You’ll notice the hash-brown potatoes in the background, found those in the bottom drawer of the fridge. 

They were very happy to see me.

This was a really nice light brunch.  The roasted veggies still had a little firmness giving the dish a wonderful fresh feel.  

Huevos Rancheros could definitely be a Breakfast for Dinner dish. If you’re an egg lover like me check out some of our favorite incredible, edible egg recipes HERE.
