Two of my favorite food genres (yes I describe food in genres) are Mexican food and breakfast food, so Mexican breakfast food is pretty much the perfect food combination in my mind. A few months ago I had a craving for Mexican breakfast food so I looked around the cupboards and my house to see what I could make. I came up with these super easy huevos rancheros that turned out to be a delicious combination of slightly crispy tortilla chips, tangy salsa, melty cheese, and hot eggs, they’re now a regular on my breakfast menu!
I started by making some microwave nachos, I used to make these all the time as an after school snack. Spread some tortilla chips on a plate, top with salsa and shredded cheese, and pop them in the microwave. You can use any kind of salsa you want, I like to use jarred southwest salsa since it has black beans in and and the jarred salsa tends to have more juice than fresh salsa.
Then you fry some eggs to your liking, I usually go with over easy to over medium. Place the eggs on top of the nachos.
Top the eggs with more salsa, then shred some cheese on top, cover with a pan lid and let sit until the cheese melts.
Serve with guacamole as you like.
Enjoy a delicious breakfast!
