Huevos Rancheros with Hash Browns

Wednesday, 17 Sep 2008

Huevos Rancheros (Country-Style Eggs) are a New Mexico favorite and are rumored to have great hangover-curing powers.   The sauce can be made ahead and stored – just add a little bit of water when you reheat it.  I could see using this sauce on top of grilled chicken or steak with some cheese, or in a hot flour tortilla with cheese.  This recipe makes four servings.


1 cup chopped onion
2 large garlic cloves, minced
2 cups canned crushed tomatoes
1 cup chopped roasted green chile
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon vinegar
salt and pepper
fresh lime juice and wedges and cilantro (optional)

Cook onions and garlic in a large skillet until soft.  Add other ingredients. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer approximately 15 minutes.  Just before serving, a squeeze of fresh lime juice and chopped cilantro can be added.

Eggs and Tortillas

8 corn tortillas
8 eggs
¼ cup cooking oil
1 tablespoon butter
3/4 cup shredded Colby Jack cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Set aside an oven-safe dish for tortillas and put paper towels in the bottom for draining. Cover the bottom of a sauce pan with cooking oil and heat on medium-high until bubbly.  Dip tortillas one-by-one into the hot oil, just for a few seconds, until softened.  Put the tortillas into the dish, layering with additional paper towels as needed and then put the dish in the oven to stay warm.

Pour out excess oil in the pan so that just a couple tablespoons remain. Reduce heat to medium.  Add a teaspoon or two of butter and let it melt in the pan.  Fry eggs two at a time (or however many will fit in your pan).  Spoon some of the oil/butter mixture over the eggs whites to help them cook evenly. Add more butter to the pan as needed. The frying usually takes around two minutes.  I like to leave the yolks soft.

Assemble plates by putting two slightly overlapping corn tortillas on each plate.  Put two fried eggs on each plate on top of the tortillas.  Sprinkle shredded cheese on top of the eggs.  Spoon sauce over the whole thing.  Garnish with a lime wedge and cilantro spring.  I also like serving this with a plate of warm flour tortillas – they’re great for soaking up extra sauce and the liquid of the eggs.  You can wrap some in foil and put them in the oven while the corn tortillas are warming.

Hash Browns

12-15 small red-or-white skinned potatoes, cooked, with skin on
¼ cup chopped onions
2 tablespoons butter
Salt and pepper

I used the leftover potatoes from last night’s Grilled Potato and Shallot Packages.  Left over baked or boiled potatoes work well, too.

Chop up cooked potatoes and mix with onions.  Melt one tablespoon of butter in a pan on medium-high heat.  Add potato and onion mixture.  Allow potatoes to brown on one side before turning (usually about 10 minutes).  Turn potatoes and add more butter.  Season with salt and freshly-ground pepper.  Cook until potatoes are evenly golden brown on the outside and onions are soft.
