Huevos Rancheros

Huevos Rancheros

Fried or poached eggs on a warm corn tortilla topped with fresh salsa, spicy black beans and shredded cheese.

I'm still in denial that theres a mountain of snow outside my front door, so of course I had to make something south of the border.  And I need some protein in me to go dig my car (and house) out!  Black beans and eggs = perfect snow shoveling energy food!

Now I have to apologize for the lack of tomato on my huevos rancheros (as many of you know, salsa on any kind of mexican food is quite important).  I will be blaming Snowpocolypse 2013 for that, we are totally out and my car is buried in no tomato today.  But when you make this, please use salsa!

The black beans were fried up with some chopped green chiles, and I used corn tortillas toasted on the stovetop for a real authentic taste - kind of like a taco shell....yum!
