Post Taco Night: Huevos Rancheros

I love taco night. Taco or fajita night consists of organic grass-fed beef, black beans, cheese, sour cream, avocado — you get the idea. Whatever your taco night consists of, you basically have the ingredients for wait for it... a Huevos Rancheros Breakfast! 

All you need to do is fry the tortilla and fry an egg. Fry the tortillas in vegetable oil, in a pan enough to coat, causing them to puff and become crisp. 

Set tortillas aside and heat your leftover fajita/taco ingredients in a pan. Assemble your tortillas, adding a fried egg, then cover with cheese and broil in the oven until cheese melts. Top with sour cream, avocado, fresh tomatoes, jalapeño and cilantro!

Again, that is why I love taco night — huevos rancheros the next morning!

E.A.T. local E.A.T. well
