I'm re-posting this because I'll be at a Wine festival on Saturday then driving to Waco (AGAIN!) on Sunday night so I won't get a chance to do a Meatless Monday post. Why does this sound like I'm too lazy to actually post something interesting? Uh, probably because I am? I'll say sorry now just to get it out of the way.
Read on at your own peril.
This is my go-to Sunday breakfast, lunch or dinner. I've made several versions of this recipe but the basics are the same. Eggs, beans, salsa.
I mix it up a bit with whatever ingredients I have on hand. No corn tortillas in the house; I use flour. No refried beans; go for black beans (our personal favorite anyway). No chili sauce; tomato sauce, a can of green chilies, and chili powder. Dip a finger in that bad boy to taste. Hot enough? Add hot sauce.
4 corn tortillas
vegetable oil for frying
1 1/2 cups refried beans
4 to 8 eggs, fried
1/2 cup red or green chili sauce
1 cup shredded yellow or white cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese
1 cup shredded lettuce
1 medium tomato, diced
1 avocado, sliced, diced or mashed
Dip tortillas into hot oil for 2 seconds; drain on paper towels. Arrange tortillas on individual ovenproof plates. Place in a warm oven. 200 or 225 degrees will do. Remove all but 1 tablespoon of oil from the frying pan. Add beans and cook, stirring until heated throughout; spread over tortillas.
Fry eggs in skillet to your preference (me; I go for runny. JR likes his a little hard). You want them a little under done. Arrange one or two eggs over each tortilla; pour sauce on top. Sprinkle cheese over tortillas. Broil until cheese is melted.
Pretty it up with the lettuce and tomato around the tortilla. Top with a little sour cream and a whole lot of avocado. Okay, you may not be a big avocado eater. Though personally I don't understand this phenomena I do realize that there are some out there that just don't like it. Around these parts we eat no less than 6 to 9 per week. I could eat my weight in guacamole. And Cheetos. And candy corn. And........
See that wasn't so bad was it? Don't answer that question. Just pity me because I'm sitting in a hotel room in Waco eating a soggy room service sandwich. One glass of wine is just not going to cut it.
