Do the "Huev"

A hot breakfast of crispy corn tortillas covered in refried beans, topped with eggs, and smothered in zesty sauce sounds AMAZING. But huevos rancheros is a dish that's typically no bueno in the fat and calories departments. Check out our decadent single-serving version ahora. (That means NOW!)

Ingredients:
Sauce
1/2 cup chopped tomatoes
1/4 cup canned crushed tomatoes
1/4 cup chopped bell pepper
2 tbsp. chopped onion
2 tbsp. canned diced green chilies
1/2 tsp. chopped garlic
1/8 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. chili powder
Dash black pepper
Dash ground cumin
1 tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro

Base
1 tsp. light whipped butter or light buttery spread (like Brummel & Brown
One 6-inch corn tortilla
1 large egg 
2 tbsp. fat-free refried beans

Directions:
Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat on the stove. Add all ingredients for sauce except cilantro. Stirring occasionally, cook until veggies have softened, about 7 minutes. Add cilantro and cook for 1 minute more. Transfer to a small bowl and cover to keep warm.

Once skillet has cooled, clean and return it to the stove. Add butter and bring skillet to medium-high heat. Once butter has coated the bottom of skillet, add tortilla. Cook until lightly browned, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

Remove skillet from heat, spray with nonstick spray, and bring to medium heat. Add egg to the skillet and cook per your preference (we like it over medium!), about 2 minutes. Meanwhile, spread beans onto tortilla. Place egg over the tortilla and cover with sauce. Enjoy!

No Mas, Por Favor...

The dish known as huevos rancheros (translation: rancher's eggs) was created as a mid-morning meal for hard-working farmhands. We imagine if we were out roping cattle, plowing fields, and performing other farm-ish activities, we'd burn off so many calories that we'd need a nice fattening meal of fried eggs, beans, and fried tortillas. However, we sit in an office all the livelong day. It doesn't require the same kind of replenishment. But does that mean we should miss out on this spectacularly delicious dish? Absolutely not! And neither should you. Make our super-indulgent yet slimmed-down spin on the classic, and prepare to have your morning seriously rocked...
