Huevos Rancheros

Here is a recipe for Huevos Rancheros.  It's a great dish for breakfast and brunch.

  • 1.5 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 Finely chopped onion
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 2 Chopped tomatoes
  • 20 oz. canned chopped tomatoes
  • 8 Eggs
  • 4 Flour tortillas
  • 2/3 cup Swiss or cheddar cheese
  • 1 Chopped bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup water

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet on medium heat.
  2. Add the onion and bell pepper. Stir and fry for 3 minutes, or until soft.
  3. Gradually add garlic, oregano, both canned and fresh tomatoes and 1/4 cup of water. 
  4. After it has boiled, reduce the heat, cover the skillet and let simmer for 8-10 minutes, or until it is thick.
  5. Make 8 hollows in the sauce with a spoon and crack an egg into each space.  Cook the eggs for 5 minutes or until they have set. Melt the cheese over the mixture.
  6. While the eggs are cooking, heat the tortillas, then cut them into quarters.
  7. Serve with the mixture on top of  the tortillas.  It makes about 4 servings.
