Huevos Rancheros

We love Bobby Flay so much that we recently combined two of his recipes: Green Chile Cheeseburgers and Huevos Rancheros. Jarrod made the Green Chile sauce that Mr. Flay is so famous for, I made our delicious black beans and fresh tortillas. We added a couple of fried eggs and had a magnificent and simple dish!

First the green chile sauce

2 poblano chiles, grilled, peeled, seeded, and chopped
1 medium white onion, grilled and chopped
1 to 2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons chopped fresh epazote, or fresh oregano leaves
1/4 cup cold water
1 tablespoon honey
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

We followed this recipe exactly with the minor adjustment of not grilling the onion. Anyone who has tasted a raw onion versus a cooked one knows that this is hardly minor. Jarrod didn't think the onion needed to be grilled - even when I told him that it did. Too much work, he said. Work that is well worth it! Next time we'll cook the onion! 

When frying the eggs, we like to do it with the green chile sauce in the pan as well. We just crack the eggs in a saute pan, pour some sauce on top, and cook sunny side up. While the eggs are cooking, place some black beans on the warm tortilla. When the eggs are done, just slide the egg and sauce on the beans. Jarrod likes to add cheese to his plate for additional flavor. Easy, delicious, and cost effective!
