“I am addicted to huevos rancheros and crave them often. These are super quick and easy to whip up, and are easy to make for one (or more)! I make these for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. These ingredients (including the corn tortillas) are good wrapped up in a burrito-sized flour tortilla, if you're on the go, or for a convenient work breakfast. High in protein, low in fat...and SO GOOD! If you don't have El Pato tomato sauce, you're better off using some sort of taco sauce (like Macayo's brand) or a chile-based salsa...definitely don't use regular tomato sauce (no spice), and I personally don't suggest tomato-based salsa.”
