New Year’s Day Brunch!

Huevos Rancheros

This tasty, filling brunch recipe makes the perfect New Years Day Brunch.  It’s a medley of Mexican seasonings, black beans, and eggs over easy. Huevos Rancheros bring the flavor (and the fiber) without the fat. Serve this with Tijuana Coffee Chaser.

 

Ingredients
1 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 medium onion
2 clove garlic
1 tbsp. chipotle sauce or other hot sauce
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 can tomatoes in juice
1 can black beans
¼ c. fresh cilantro leaves
¼ tsp. salt
1 tbsp. margarine or butter
4 large eggs
4 corn or flour tortillas
1 avocado (optional)

Directions
In 4-quart saucepan, heat oil on medium until hot. Add onion and garlic, and cook 8 minutes or until beginning to brown. Stir in chipotle sauce and cumin; cook 30 seconds, stirring. Add tomatoes; cover and cook 3 minutes to blend flavors, stirring occasionally. Stir in beans, half of cilantro, and 1/4 teaspoon salt; heat through, about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Meanwhile, in 12-inch nonstick skillet, melt margarine on medium. Crack eggs, 1 at a time, and drop into skillet. Cover skillet and cook eggs 4 to 5 minutes or until whites are set and yolks thicken.
Place tortillas on 4 dinner plates; top each with some tomato mixture and 1 egg. Sprinkle with remaining cilantro. Serve with avocado and additional hot sauce if you like.
