Weeknight Meal

Usually huevos rancheros are made for breakfast.  In fact I had them for breakfast when we were in Costa Rica!

I am STILL trying to figure out exactly how to make those beans!

Last night we re-visited these flavors for dinner.  Super simple and quick, perfect for a weeknight meal.

Huevos Ranchero – Serves 2

  • 4 tortillas
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup uncooked beans cooked with 1 jalapeño, 1/2 onion, and 1 clove garlic (or 1 cup cooked)
  • cilantro
  • scallions
  • avocado
  • salsa of choice

Jess, please forgive me for using split pitas, the store was out of tortillas!  I made the beans in the slow cooker with onion, garlic, and jalapeño while I was at work (you could totally used canned but I am trying to never use them again).  Once I got home from yoga, I  slapped the pita (tortilla) with some beans and cheese and threw it under the broiler.  I cooked our eggs to order, pulled out the beans, topped with egg, avocado, cilantro, scallions, and salsa.

Amazing and easy any day of the week!

Have a great weekend!

    Hi L.B., why are you banning canned beans?
    Does “yoke” equal “yolk”?

    • Heather says:

      Yes, yoke = yolk I am just really bad at grammar and spelling! I think homemade beans just taste better than canned. There is also the sodium, BPA, and cost factors.

        True about canned pdts (and related enhanced premium you have to pay not to have the sodium and BPA)! One item I wanted to suggest (because I’ve been using it for so long and I find it incredibly convenient), is the pressure cooker: if you leave your beans soaking for a good 24 hours, than a pressure cooker will get the job done in 20 to 40 min (according to the bean type). Cheaper than using energy during the day and I promise it’s incredibly tasteful (just add some garlic and laurel to the water) – once ready, a bit of freshly ground black pepper + evoo will do wonders (if you add turmeric, combined to the black pepper it will turn the dish into a powerful anti-cancer meal too!).
        Side note – Congrats for your work on the blog: I’m eager to read it as often as I can!
