El Guapo's Cantina Huevos Rancheros

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 2 (6 inch) corn tortillas
  • 1/2 cup salsa roja
  • 3 ounces refried beans
  • 2 ounces chorizo
  • 3-4 ounces Monterey jack/cheddar cheese blend
  • 2 ounces Mexican crema
  • 1 ounce avocado, diced
  • 2 tablespoons diced onion and cilantro

Instructions

  1. Warm the corn tortillas in a microwave or skillet only to a point where they are more pliable.
  2. Warm the salsa roja in a skillet and dredge the tortillas in the sauce, making sure they are completely covered.
  3. Place one tortilla on a plate and spread 1 1/2 ounces of refried beans on top. Continue to build by adding 1 ounce cooked chorizo and 1 1/2 to 2 ounces cheese. At this point, you may place under a broiler for a few seconds to melt the cheese – or place in a microwave and warm briefly.
  4. Lay the next tortilla on top and repeat the build order.
  5. Finish the plate by placing 2 poached eggs on top and garnish with avocado, cilantro and onions. Drizzle with the Mexican crema.
  6. To poach eggs: Place water into medium saucepan and add 2 1/2 tablespoons white vinegar per quart of water. Break eggs individually into separate custard cups. When water is at a rolling boil, add one egg at a time and cook for 4 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and place on paper towel to remove excess water.
  7. Serve immediately.
