When you are looking for a hearty breakfast you can not beat Huevos Rancheros.  It is a filling, tasty delight with so much going on.  You can do fried eggs, braised eggs, poached or scrambled any way you choose it will be mighty delicious.

Finally, after many years of searching, we found the best corn tortillas.  They are made by a Canadian company by the name of Casa Bonita.  When heated in a dry cast iron pan, they stay soft, pliable and are delicious.  No more hard, dry, crumbly corn tortillas!

2 free range eggs, I braised mine but cook any way you prefer

1 corn tortilla

1 small green onion, sliced

2 Tblsp. minced cilantro include the stems

1/2 cup re fried beans, canned or homemade

1/2 an avocado, sliced lengthwise

grated cheddar cheese


Heat up a cast iron pan on medium high heat.  Meanwhile, cook your eggs and keep warm, and heat up the re fried beans on low heat and keep warm.

Place the corn tortilla in the hot cast iron pan and cook about 20 seconds each side, then place on a plate.  Slather on the re fried beans with a sprinkling of green onion, cilantro and cheddar cheese.  Top with the eggs adding remainder cheese, green onion and cilantro.  Top with salsa, and add sliced avocados. Such a hearty, yummy, satisfying, breakfast.
