Huevos Rancheros with Queso Fresco- Cooking Light

A savory breakfast for dinner an excellent Cooking Light Find.   This takes less than 20 mins to make because most of it is canned ingredients. I can’t even imagine how tasty this is with freshly made ingredients, the next time I make home made Enchiladas I will be making this dish. 😉  To make this spicy add some hot spices to the salsa or hot sauce.

Ingredients

  • 1 (10-ounce) can diced tomatoes and green chiles, undrained
  • 1 (10-ounce) can red enchilada sauce
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 (16-ounce) can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
  • Cooking spray
  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 (8-inch) fat-free flour tortillas
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) crumbled queso fresco cheese

Preparation

  1. Combine the tomatoes and enchilada sauce in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 5 minutes or until slightly thick. Remove from heat; stir in cilantro and juice. Set aside.
  2. Place water and beans in a microwave-safe bowl, and partially mash with a fork. Cover and microwave at HIGH 2 minutes or until hot.
  3. Heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add eggs; cook 1 minute on each side or until desired degree of doneness.
  4. Warm tortillas according to package directions. Spread about 1/3 cup beans over each tortilla; top each tortilla with 1 egg. Spoon 1/2 cup sauce around each egg; sprinkle each serving with 1/4 cup cheese.
Note:Queso fresco is a soft, crumbly Mexican cheese found in the dairy section of large grocery stores or Hispanic markets, but use feta or goat cheese if you prefer.
