Huevos Rancheros

  • 8 eggs
  • 8 plain tortillas
  • 1 can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 small brown onion, chopped
  • 1 small clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp vegie salt (similar to vegie stock; use regular salt if unavailable)
  • Grated cheese (to taste)
  • Jalapenos (to taste)
  • Tabasco sauce (to taste)
  1. Fry the onion and garlic in a little oil until soft, then add the kidney beans, tomato, paprika and vegie salt.
  2. Cook until heated through then divide the mixture evenly between the tortillas.
  3. In the same pan, fry up the eggs.
  4. While they're cooking you can place the other ingredients on top of the bean mix (sliced avocado, jalapenos, grated cheese and tabasco).
  5. When the eggs are cooked, placed them on top of everything else.
Serves 4 hungry people, or 8 less hungry people.

One time when I was feeling particularly motivated I made the tortillas from scratch using this recipe (well worth the effort).
