Huevos Rancheros Ala Larry

It’s been awhile since I’ve made a breakfast that I thought was pretty special but this one sure hit the spot.  I was sitting behind my computer in the early morning and began thinking about breakfast options and I thought I might just have a bowl of leftover Charro Beans but decided I put in the effort for something better and included eggs. 

I knew we had all of the ingredients for Huevos Rancheros utilizing the beans and since they were awesome, I knew they would make this dish special so the first thing I did was reheat a bowl full in the microwave.  While the beans were heating, cooked a couple of corn tortillas in a skillet and laid them on a plate.

Then I used a slotted spoon to remove the warm beans from the bowl, let them drain off the liquid, and added them atop the tortillas.

Next came shredded cheddar and back in the micro wave for 30 seconds to melt it.

While the cheese was melting, I cooked the eggs sunny side up with a lid on the pan and when done, I slid them out onto the tortillas – a little off center – added a little more cheese and chopped cilantro.

I cannot imagine I’ve ever had better huevos rancheros which was due in large part to the Charro Beans, which may be the best Mexican beans I’ve ever had – you may want to make them for your next pot of beans - I'm sure they would go well over some Mexican cornbread.  Just click on the link for the recipe and for this batch I used four cups of pintos that I had cooked rather than canned beans.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.
