What do I have in my kitchen? Huevoes Rancheros for the Husband

On Sunday my husband wanted something spicy and savory. Geoffrey loves Mexican. I wanted to make Huevos Rancheros, but most of the recipes I looked at used regular salsa and I did not want that.

I looked into my cupboard and decided to create my own dish with what I had in my kitchen. Lets just say, It was a huge success. My husband devoured the entire plate and informed me that I hit a homerun.

Let's see what you think.....

2 links of Chorizo, out of casing
1/4 cp. chopped onions
1 can pinto beans
1 can of Salsa de (Something...I can't remember, sorry. It is really hot and in a yellow small can)
2 whole Chipotles in Adobo
2 TB of the Sauce in the Can of Chipotles in Adobo
2 flour tortilla, grilled
3 eggs
1/2 cp. monterary jack cheese
2 jalapenos sliced thin

1. I pureed the pinto beans and added the salsa de..., the Chipotles in Abodo and lots of Abodo Sauce. I salt and peppered. It tasted spicy and yummy. Set a side.
2. I browned the Chorizo and added the onions. When browned and the onions are soft I added the thick spicy sauce.
3. I grilled the tortillas and layed on the bottom of a plate. I added half of the cheese.
4. I cooked the eggs over easy. When the eggs where done I added the sauce to the tortillas, topped with the eggs. I added the rest of the cheese and then topped the entire thing with the jalapenos.


  1. Yuuum!

    My honey and I are experimenting more and more with peppers now that I know how to handle them (HAA!!). This looks like something he might dig~ I'll have to ask him and see :) Great job! The pictures are delicious!

  4. What do I think?
    I think I had better not show this to my husband otherwise he will want it immediately!!! Nice one!

  5. Gosh you just brought back memories of my single life, late night drinks and dancing and then my friends and I would hit a diner in Dallas for this very dish! No hangover bloody mary needed here, just huevos rancheros! Ole!!!

  8. Huevos rancheros reminds me of a small Route 66 diner in New Mexico. They serve the best h.r. that I've ever tasted. I think it's time to replicate the memory in my kitchen. Thanks for the post!
