Gizzi Erskine's huevos rancheros

Gizzi Erskine's huevos rancheros
  • Serves: 2
  • Prep: 0mins
  • Cook: 10mins

Gizzi says: "One of my favourite brunch recipes must be huevos rancheros, the classic Mexican dish of corn tortillas with a spicy tomato sauce, fried eggs and avocado."

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 red chilli, finely chopped
  • 400g can chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon tomato purée
  • a splash red wine vinegar
  • a good handful of fresh coriander, chopped
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 200g can refried beans
  • 4 small corn tortillas
  • 2-3 tablespoons light olive or vegetable oil
  • 4 large British Lion eggs
  • 1 avocado, finely chopped
  • Chilli sauce to serve

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a small frying pan. Add in the garlic and chilli and stir fry for 1 minute or until the garlic starts to soften and go golden. Add in the tomatoes, purée, red wine vinegar and half of the coriander and over a medium high heat cook for 9 minutes, then season to taste.
  2. Heat up the refried beans in a small saucepan. Heat a frying pan and toast the corn tortillas in them for 20-30 seconds on each side and lay two on each plate. When toasted put the oil in the pan and fry the eggs (Gizzi uses free range) for 1-2 minutes, basting the yolks with the hot oil as you go.
  3. Spread a spoonful of the refried beans on the two tortillas, then dollop on two spoons of tomato sauce on top. Top each plate with two fried eggs, some avocado and the rest of the coriander. Finish with a drizzle of chilli sauce.

#eggsmyway #eggs #brunchThe best place to store your eggs is in the fridge. Eggs should be kept at a constant temperature below 20°C, so to avoid temperature fluctuations in a domestic kitchen store them in their box in the fridge. But they are not kept in the fridge in the supermarket we hear you cry! Most modern supermarkets are kept below 20°C so refrigeration isn’t necessary. Keeping your eggs in the fridge at home ensures optimum freshness and food safety which is eggcellent news for any #egghead #tofridgeornottofridge #eggmyths #facts #egghacks #britishlioneggs #factfriday
