Okay - while this is by no means traditional huevos rancheros since hey there is no ranchero sauce, it is quick, Mexican-inspired and really, really delicious! I cooked the eggs sunny side up in a mild olive oil and put the lid on for the last minute to set the tops a little. I served the eggs generously sprinkled with fresh ground pepper over top of Trader Joe's all-natural Salsa Autentica. It is not chunky or thickened and is the perfect consistency to serve with the eggs. I also turned to Trader Joe's for the black beans on the side. They are already seasoned with onions and peppers and are a really nice and healthy alternative to meat on the side. Vegetarian refried beans would be good as well. A few Garden of Eatin' tortilla chips and some slices of avocado for good measure. Voila! A fast, tasty and healthy weekend breakfast! Oh, and of course the key is farm fresh eggs. Happy Saturday!
I was born and raised in NJ, first in Hunterdon County, later relocating to Monmouth County, and finally I am in Northern Ocean County. I work In Middlesex County and went to college in Mercer County. Whew... Therefore, I have knowledge of much of the Garden State. I am passionate about food; especially local foods. I have been addicted to farm markets since I was very young. I have a great husband and two of the best daughters anyone could wish for. NJ is an epicurean's delight! I would love your comments and questions.
