Huevos Rancheros for Breakfast

September 23, 2011

Huevos Rancheros are a hearty breakfast that help you get your morning started.  Tortillas are layered with beans and then a freshly fried egg is placed on top with salsa, avocados, and queso fresco (similar to feta).  This version uses salsa verde (green salsa) instead of the traditional red, feel free to add your favorite salsa.  Fresh beans are always best but canned will work well in this recipe too.
