~Huevos Rancheros~

Serves 5

5 homemade corn tortillas

10 cloves oven roasted garlic, peeled and mashed

1 can re-fried beans, heated

2 cups extra sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

fresh lettuce or spinach, chopped

salsa (homemade is best)

5 large eggs, basted

10 slices of thick sliced bacon, fried until crispy

a handful of fresh cilantro, chopped

Sriracha hot sauce

salt and pepper

The very best corn tortillas are homemade. If you’ve never had fresh tortillas, you are in for a treat. HERE’s an easy RECIPE.

Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a cast iron or nonstick skillet. Heat tortillas, one at a time in the oil until they become soft and slightly crispy on both sides. Remove tortillas to individual plates.

Top each tortilla with ingredients in the following order:

a couple oven roasted garlic cloves, mashed and spread over tortilla evenly

heated re-fried beans

shredded cheddar cheese

lettuce or spinach


freshly basted egg

a couple strips of the bacon, crumbled over top

cilantro, Sriracha, salt and pepper to taste

    Ten cloves of OVEN ROASTED garlic…don’t forget or that garlic will overpower the whole dish and people may start calling you Stinky 🙂 hee hee Hmmm, garlic cookies eh? Maybe a savory “cookie” to go with cheese and vino?

    OMG, you had me at 10 cloves of garlic!! This looks amazing. And I totally want to tackle homemade tortillas – my husband would drop at my feet! Quick question – i don’t ever have shortening in the house…could i sub with butter or coconut oil?

      Hi Justine!
      It’s one of our favorite breakfasts. I need my shot of protein in the morning. This is the only recipe where I use shortening. I think trying to substitute coconut oil might work! I’m going to try it. Shortening is so unhealthy. Thanks for the inspiration 🙂 I think butter would burn…hmmmm…I’ll get back to you on this. xo
