Huevos Rancheros

This classic Mexican dish beautifully showcases our farm-fresh eggs!

Ingredients:
4 eggs
4 corn tortillas
½ yellow onion, peeled and diced
1 15-ounce can of crushed tomatoes (or 1-2 very ripe tomatoes)
½ of a 6-ounce jar of diced green Anaheim chiles
½ teaspoon chipotle chile powder
Olive oil
Butter
Freshly-chopped cilantro, for garnish
Sea salt

Method:
1. To make the sauce, sauté the onions with about a teaspoon of olive oil in a large skillet on medium heat. Once the onions are translucent, add the tomatoes and their juices. (If you are using fresh tomatoes, chop them first, then add. Note that fresh tomatoes will take longer to cook than canned ones.) Add the chopped green chiles and chipotle chili powder. Bring to a simmer, reduce heat to low, and let the sauce simmer while you prepare the rest of the dish, stirring occasionally. Add salt to taste if needed.

2. To prepare the tortillas, heat a teaspoon of olive oil in another large non-stick skillet on medium high heat, coating the pan with the oil. One by on, heat the tortillas in the pan, a minute or two on each side, until they are heated through and softened. Remove to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm.

3. Using the same skillet, add about 2 teaspoons butter to the pan and heat the pan on medium high heat. Crack 4 eggs into the skillet and cook for 3 to 4 minutes for runny yolks, more for firmer eggs.

4. To serve, spoon a little of the sauce onto a plate. Top with a tortilla, then a fried egg. Top with more sauce and sprinkle with cilantro before serving.

Variation: Try topping each tortilla with cooked and crumbled chorizo sausage for an extra kick!
