mini huevos rancheros December 10, 2008

Posted by mrstetris in brunch, huevos rancheros, kids, mini, party, whole foods market.

i made these for pk and i this morning.  it was delicious and easy to make!  although i added and changed some things, i found this recipe on wholefoodsmarket.com.

this recipe is great for a brunch party or a simple and trouble-free breakfast to make with kids.  i love that you can prepare each mini cake to each persons liking, since some people do not like meat, cilantro, onions, etc.



4 (5-inch) corn tortillas

Olive oil spray

1/2 (15-ounce) can refried beans

4 large eggs

1/2 cup salsa

4 tsp shredded cheddar cheese or queso fresco

1/8 cup chopped fresh cilantro

1/8 cup chopped onions

1/8 cup grape tomatoes

¼ cup cooked chorizo crumbled or 2 slice of bacon crumbled (optional)


Preheat oven to 350°F and oil a standard 12- cup muffin tin.

Heat corn tortillas one at a time in a dry skillet over medium-high heat for 15 to 20 seconds on each side, just until they are soft and pliable. Spray each warm tortilla with canola oil on both sides. Press and fold each tortilla into a muffin cup. Place a small ball of foil in the center to hold in sides of tortillas. Bake 5 minutes.

Remove foil and add 2 tablespoons refried beans to each corn tortilla cup, pressing them down into bottom of cup. Make an indentation in the center of the refried beans and carefully crack an egg into each indentation. Bake in the middle of the oven until whites are just set, about 15 minutes.

Remove cakes from the muffin pan carefully, using 2 spoons or small spatulas. Top with a spoonful of salsa and sprinkle with queso fresco, cilantro, onions, tomatoes, and crumbled chorizo/bacon. Squeeze a little lime juice on each cake.  Serve immediately.
