Huevos Rancheros by #diningwithdaveh

I've been hearing talk of huevos rancheros for a long time, so finally decided to give them a go, adding my own twist! You can add chillis to taste, but I'd recommend using at least one... For a really special taste, use black truffle salt and freshly cracked black pepper... Enjoy!!



4 servings
  1. 4 mushrooms
  2. 1 onion
  3. 2 birdseye chilli
  4. 2 clove garlic
  5. 1 green bellpepper
  6. 1 red bellpepper
  7. 1 olive oil
  8. 1 salt
  9. 1 cracked black pepper
  10. 4 large eggs
  11. 2 can chopped tomatoes
  12. 1 1/4 bunch fresh coriander
  13. 4 tortillas
  14. 1 cup grated cheese
  15. tabasco sauce
  16. 1 lime


25 mins
  1. Finely chop onions, peppers, chillis, garlic and mushrooms (you can add or subtract chillis as required, or even change types, but I'd recommend using at least one). Slice lime into quarters and place in the fridge

  2. Add 2 or 3 decent chugs of olive oil to a large wok and put on high heat

  3. Add chopped onion, peppers, chillis, garlic and mushrooms, then stir fry on mid to high heat for 10 mins to caramelise

  4. Add both cans of tomatoes, plus salt and pepper to taste. Bring to the boil, and then simmer on low to mid heat for 8 mins to allow mixture to reduce

  5. Once mixture has reduced to an almost stew-like consistency, use a large spoon, or other rounded utensil to make 4 pockets in the mixture (you'll know when it's ready, as the pockets will more or less keep their shape and not dissolve)

  6. As quickly as possible, crack all 4 eggs into their respective pockets (this is to ensure that all of the eggs receive similar cooking times)

  7. Cover pan with large lid and cook on low to mid heat for 3 mins (this gives you perfect runny eggs -add more time as required for desired consistency)

  8. Remove lid and sprinkle fresh chopped coriander across the top

  9. Serve to warmed plates immediately (alternatively, you can bring the pan to the table and serve into warmed tortillas with a sprinkle of grated cheese). Add squeeze of lime juice and dash of Tabasco sauce to taste
