Huevos Rancheros is one of my favorite meals – a big plate of eggs and tortillas simmered in salsa and smothered in cheese. This is my lame, bachelor-for-the-weekend version that I make when my dear wife is out of town.
Heat a glug or so of oil in a fry pan. Add a couple of handfuls of stale tortilla chips (or leftover nachos from the night before). When the chips start to sizzle, douse with salsa. Make 2 or 3 shallow wells in salsa with back of large spoon. Drop an egg into each well. Cover with shredded cheese and put a lid on the pan.
The eggs are done when the whites are set and the yolks are still runny – about 5 minutes. Load onto a plate and top with a couple of globs of sour cream and plenty of hot sauce. Yummmm, man food!
