Huevos Rancheros

Yesterday was a snowed-in-cuddle-up day and it called for a nice warm breakfast.  When we lived in El Paso we became spoiled with the abundance of authentic, fresh Mexican food.  We ate Mexican food several times a week.  One of our favorite dishes is the breakfast staple, huevos rancheros.  This recipe that I threw together yesterday is not authentic.  But it is quick, simple and quite tasty. 

Here's what you'll need:
Tortillas (we used flour)
Shredded cheese (we used Colby)
Refried Beans (we used vegetarian)
Sour Cream

You will also need two skillets.  In skillet number one set about frying up two eggs (or three if your husband has spent the morning shoveling the neighbor's driveway and he's hunnry).
In skillet numero dos turn the heat to medium and heat up the tortilla, flipping it once after 30-60 seconds.  Once you've flipped it, spread some shredded cheese and some refried beans.  That will heat while the eggs cook to your desired doneness.  Once your eggs are done, slide them from skillet one onto the tortilla, slide the entire tortilla situation (fist pump!) onto your plate.  Top with salsa, sour cream and cilantro.  Or don't, it's your huevos you can do whatever you want with it. 
This is such a tasty morning treat that takes about 5 minutes to prepare.  My snow shoveling hubby was so happy with breakfast that he did all of the cleaning.  And that, my friends, is a success in my book.
