Huevos Rancheros
1/4 chopped onion
1 16oz can tomatoes
3 garlic cloves
4 tortillas
4 eggs
Cooking oil
pinch of chili powder
Chili peppers to taste
shredded Monterey Jack or Manchego cheese


Chop the onion and chili peppers.

Mash the garlic with a press, or simply by smashing it or cutting it into tiny pieces.

Set small frying pan in mid-high heat. Add 1 dash of oil to frying pan.

Add the tomatoes, onion, garlic, chili powder and chilis. Once the sauce is boiling, reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes.

On a larger frying pan, put some oil and fry two tortillas for about 30 seconds on each side.

Put the tortillas on a plate, and fry two eggs without overcooking them or cooking the top of the egg.

Place one egg on top of each tortilla, and fully cover the eggs with the sauce. The sauce will cook the top of the egg.

Now repeat the frying stages for the tortillas and the other eggs.

Serve with beans and some shredded cheese on top!

Make sure that you only use a pinch of chili powder, otherwise the sauce will have a sweet taste. Not good.

Huevos Rancheros is a Mexican classic. This dish is very easy to make and it is perfect for breakfast.
