Skillet Huevos Rancheros

Skillet Huevos Rancheros

This was a perfect Sunday morning breakfast. I sautéed some onion then added drained black beans along with some seasonings and enchilada sauce. I layered a small cast iron skillet with a corn tortilla topped with the black bean mixture then cracked a couple of eggs on top along with some tomato. I baked it until the egg whites were cooked through but the yolks were still runny. I topped it with cotija cheese, bits of diced jalapeno, and fresh cilantro. I served these huevos rancheros with spicy salsa and lime wedges. My husband loved it and so did I.

How to Make Skillet Huevos Rancheros

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Coat a small cast iron pan with cooking spray.

Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté for 3-5 minutes or until softened. Add the rinsed and drained black beans to the skillet along with the enchilada sauce. Season with a couple of dashes of oregano, coriander, cumin, garlic powder, sea salt, and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Cook for 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat.

Heat the tortilla over a gas flame on both sides for 20-30 seconds OR heat in a microwave for 10 seconds, or until pliable. Place the tortilla in the bottom of the prepared cast iron skillet.
