simple and tasty huevos rancheros

{shell and jake christmas eve} 
i'mmmmmmmmmmm bacccccccccccccckkkkkkkkkkkkkkk.. this year the holiday season was extra kaotic.. 2 days after christmas I had a family dinner party.. {recipes will be coming soon but we had tri-tip, scalloped potatoes and green beans bundles.. oh my word.. good} then for new years i had an impromptu new years party and we served burgers and brats and had a condiment bar.. again very good..
also on christmas morning.. jake asked sam to marry him!!! and she said yes.. we are all so excited and happy for them.. lot's of great things happening..
every christmas morning since i was about 12 we've had huevos rancheros for breakfast.. about a million years ago i had stayed at my cousin andi's house over christmas break and she made me this breakfast.. i fell in love.. i immediately went home and made it for my family.. they loved it.. so my mom said why don't you make this for us on christmas morning and so i did and have for the past 35 years.. i even made it last year when we were in hawaii.. it's tradition.. it's special.. it's awesome!!

huevos rancheros
prep. time: 10-15 minutes
cooking time: 20-30 minutes
servings: 4


canola oil
homemade refried beans
8 farm fresh eggs
8 corn tortillas
4 flour tortillas
sour cream
shredded cheddar cheese


make your homemade refried beans.. while they are cooking cook your tortillas.. in a medium/small iron skillet heat canola oil over medium high heat.. {you want the oil to come up 1/2 way up the pan} once hot, take your tortillas one by one add them to the hot oil.. cook a minute or two on each side.. you want them slightly crispy.. remove from oil and stack on a paper towel lined plate and then cover with foil or tortilla warming container.. when you get to your flour tortillas i usually cut them into fourths.. and fry them also.. once tortillas are cooked, the beans made, i heat up the salsa in the microwave for a minute or so.. now it's time to fry your eggs.. in a medium non stick skillet melt a little butter over medium heat.. cooking 2 eggs at a time {i use two pans} cook your eggs until your desired doneness..

to serve:

add two corn tortillas to your plate.. smear a little refried beans on top.. add your eggs then top with cheese, sour cream and salsa.. serve with a wedge of fried flour tortilla for dipping..  i like to add a little tobacco also..

it is by far one of my favorite breakfasts!! and my mom always sets the table so's such a special morning!! and remember to  

enjoy and get cook'n!!
