Huevos Rancheros
Ingredients
  • 3  tablespoons  olive oil or cooking oil
  • 5 6  inches  corn tortillas
  • 1/2  cup  chopped onion (1 medium)
  • 2  cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 14 1/2 ounce can  tomatoes, drained and cut up
  • 1 - 2  chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, chopped or 1/2 of a 4-ounce can diced green chile peppers, drained
  • 2  tablespoons  snipped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4  teaspoon  ground cumin
  • 8  eggs
  • 1  tablespoon  water
  • 1/2  cup  shredded Monterey Jack cheese or crumbled queso fresco cheese (2 ounces)
  •  Cilantro or parsley sprigs (optional)
Directions

1. In a 12-inch skillet heat 2 tablespoons of the oil. Dip each tortilla, one at a time, into the oil just until hot. Drain on paper towels (do not stack), reserving oil in skillet. Keep 4 of the tortillas warm on a baking sheet in a 300 degrees F oven. Reserve remaining tortilla.

2. Meanwhile, for salsa, in the oil remaining in the skillet cook onion and garlic for 2 to 3 minutes or until tender. Stir in drained tomatoes, chile peppers, cilantro, and cumin. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Transfer mixture to a blender or food processor. Tear reserved tortilla into pieces and add to blender or food processor. Cover and blend or process until a coarse puree. Keep warm.

3. In the skillet heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Carefully break eggs into skillet. When whites are set, add water. Cover skillet and cook eggs to desired doneness (3 to 4 minutes for soft-set yolks or 4 to 5 minutes for firm-set yolks).

4. Place a warm tortilla on each of four dinner plates. Top each with 2 fried eggs. Spoon some of the warm salsa over the eggs. Sprinkle with cheese. If desired, garnish with cilantro sprigs. Makes 4 servings.
