Why I Love This Recipe

ReciMeals are designed to be complete meals that need only be accompanied by a beverage, and sometimes a side salad or slice of bread. A ReciMeal provides significant amounts of at least three of the five MyPyramid food groups: about 1/2 cup of fruits, 1/2 cup of vegetables, 1 ounce equivalent of grain foods, 2 ounces or the equivalent of lean meat or beans or 1 cup or the equivalent of milk per recipe serving. The classic Mexican dish, huevos rancheros, means “ranch eggs.” Topped with spicy tomato sauce, this protein-rich dish makes a great brunch, lunch or dinner meal. Serve with a side of vitamin C-rich canned fruit salad, mango or pineapple if you’d like.

Ingredients You'll Need

4 (6-inch) corn tortillas
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 large garlic clove, chopped
1 tablespoon plus
2 teaspoons vegetable oil, divided
1 can (15 ounces) diced tomatoes with green chiles
1/8 teaspoon chili powder
4 large eggs
1 avocado, sliced
1/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1 cup shredded lettuce
1 cup canned fat-free refried beans, warmed


Stack tortillas; wrap in foil. Heat at 350°F for 10 minutes until warm. In a medium, non-stick skillet, cook and stir onion and garlic in 2 teaspoons oil until onions are soft and translucent. Add tomatoes and chili powder. Reduce heat to simmer; cook uncovered for about 8 to 10 minutes until sauce thickens slightly, stirring occasionally. Keep warm. In a separate large, non-stick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Crack eggs, keeping the yolks intact and slipping each one gently into the skillet. Cook covered until whites and yolks are set and cooked through. Arrange a warm tortilla on each plate. Put a cooked egg on each tortilla. Top with tomato-onion sauce. Top with avocado, cheese and cilantro. Serve with lettuce and refried beans.
