Huevos Rancheros




  1. Heat oil in a skillet large enough to hold a corn tortilla. Fry each tortilla tender-crisp, about 30 seconds per side.
  2. Drain each and keep warm in paper towels.
  3. Discard all but a trace of any remaining oil and reduce heat to warm.
  4. Have the shelled eggs ready to slip into pan without breaking yolks. Cook only until whites are set, seasoning with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Quickly place 1 egg per tortilla and keep warm while quickly heating salsa in the same skillet.
  6. Pour salsa over eggs.
  7. Top with cheese, which will melt as eggs are served.
  8. Serve with hot refried beans and a small mound of Chorizo (Mexican sausage).
