huevos rancheros

My normal breakfast is a rushed affair that consists, on most weekdays, of an egg in a basket. But on Saturdays, I love to make something extra special that I can enjoy out in my patio. This is a fantastic brunch and easily serves up to 3 people. It’s meaty, it’s hearty and really delicious. And I think I don’t need to convince you that fried eggs dropped in anything is heavenly. huevos rancheros

I’ve made many variations of this in the past. I have also used up leftover chilli for the meat sauce and it always turns out delicious. I like to serve this taco style but accompany this with whatever your heart desires–crisp tacos, nachos, baguette. You can top it with a dollop of sour cream and jalapenos too for a spicy kick!
