May not be original Huevos Rancheros, but it's good and so easy!

I have made a similar dish using chunky hashbrowns rather than tater tots and everyone liked it. Not sure how this recipe came by the name of Huevos Rancheros Casserole though. Authentic Huevos Rancheros are not made with potatoes, but they do contain beans, usually black beans or refried beans. Also, the eggs are fried, not scrambled. When made with scrambled eggs, the dish is called Huevos a la Mexicana.
