Meatless March Meal #12: Huevos Rancheros

This dinner was actually really good! I would seriously consider making this at least once or twice a month. And it's pretty a simple recipe. Jordan loved it as well. And needless to say, there were not any leftovers :) I think though, that it does make the perfect amount for 2-3 people. Of course, it can easily be made for more. 

Original recipe found here, but I changed it up a bit. So my recipe is different.

Huevos Rancheros

Ingredients: }} prep time: 25 minutes }} cook time: 10 minutes
1 1/2 c thinly sliced romaine lettuce
1 green onion, sliced
2 T fresh cilantro, sliced {optional: as in, we didn't have any cilantro and it still tasted fab}
3 t olive oil
2 t lime juice
Salt {just a pinch or so}
Pepper {just a pinch or so}
2 c Refried beans {recipe to follow}
6" corn tortillas {we had 8}
Shredded cheddar cheese
4 eggs

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Combine romaine, cilantro, green onion, lime juice, salt, and 1 t oil. Combine beans and salsa in a separate bowl. Put just enough salsa in to make it a slightly runny consistency--maybe a 1/4 to 1/2 cup {but to your liking is best}.

2. Coat tortillas with cooking spray on both sides. Place tortillas on a baking sheet, overlapping just barely.

3. Spoon the bean & salsa mixture onto the tortillas, and sprinkle with cheese {however much you like}. Then bake for about 10 minutes, or until beans are hot and cheese is melted.

4. While your tortillas are cooking, crack your eggs into a skillet, without breaking any of the yokes. Cook for about 5 minutes, flipping once when the eggs are cooked on the bottom.

5. Assemble two tacos, one egg, and a portion of the lettuce mixture onto your plate. Eat and enjoy!
