Huevos Rancheros Verdes

Huevos rancheros or “ranch eggs” is a classic Mexican dish that is great for a quick dinner. Traditionally, it’s made with a red tomato-based sauce. Here we use tart and tangy green salsa instead. Serve with: brown rice and slices of avocado.

Serves 4

Prep Time 30 min

Total Time 30 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups very thinly sliced romaine lettuce
  • 1 scallion, sliced
  • 2 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 3 teaspoons canola oil, divided
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, divided
  • 1 15-ounce c pinto beans, rinsed
  • 1/2 cup prepared green salsa, (see Tip)
  • 8 6-inch corn tortillas
  • Canola oil cooking spray
  • 3/4 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 4 large eggs

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Step 2

Combine lettuce, scallion, cilantro, 1 teaspoon oil, lime juice, 1/8 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper in a bowl; set aside. Combine beans and salsa in another bowl.

Step 3

Coat both sides of each tortilla with cooking spray. Place tortillas on a large baking sheet in 4 sets of overlapping pairs. (Each pair should overlap by about 3 inches.) Spread about 1/3 cup of the bean mixture on top of each pair of tortillas and sprinkle with 3 tablespoons cheese each. Bake until the beans are hot and the cheese is melted, about 10 minutes.

Step 4

Meanwhile, heat the remaining 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Crack each egg into a small bowl and slip them one at a time into the pan, taking care not to break the yolks. Season the eggs with the remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt and pepper. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook undisturbed for 5 to 7 minutes for soft-set yolks. (For hard-set yolks, cover the pan after 5 minutes and continue cooking until the yolks are cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes more.)

Step 5

To assemble, place an egg on top of each pair of tortillas and top with a generous 1/4 cup of the lettuce mixture.
