Huevos Rancheros

My definition: delicious! definition: a Latin American dish of eggs, usually fried or poached, topped with a spicy tomato sauce and sometimes served on a fried corn tortilla with the addition of vegetables and cheese.

Wikipedia definition: a classic Mexican breakfast dish popular throughout much of the Americas consisting of eggs served in the style of the traditional large mid-morning fare on poor farms. The basic dish consists of fried eggs served upon lightly fried corn tortillas topped with a tomato-chili sauce. Refried beans, slices of avocado, or guacamole may accompany the dish.

No matter which way you slice it, huevos rancheros makes me happy at least once a week as I begin my journey across New Mexico to try as many different versions as I can. And then report back to you. Do I have my favorites? Yes! But this isn’t about me; it’s about the beautiful variations on a moonlight (or in this case “egg”) theme.

I hope you enjoy the journey as much as I do… cheers! Aye-yi-yi-yi.
