Mexican food is among America's favorite ethnic foods. However, the great taste of Mexican dishes does come at a certain price and in this case that would be the fact that it's high in fat. Yet there are ways to make these spicy meals a bit healthier and our recipe for Huevos Ranchers follows this idea. The great thing about Mexican meals is that they can be easily prepared at home and the recipes are based on the extensive use of fresh veggies, beans, lean meat and grains.

Tortillas, beans and rice are the corner stones of Mexican cooking and as we know, these products are very rich on carbohydrates, fiber, protein and iron. For ages now, a Mexican table without tortillas is like an empty table. Americans have much love for tortilla and as a matter of fact, they are now more popular than all other ethnic breads, like pita brad, bagels or English muffins. Nowadays, tortillas serve as a substitute for traditional breads and can be used in all types of recipes to hold a variety of fillings, toasted with salad on top.

Huevos rancheros is one of those Mexican dishes that screams for salsa and tortillas. It's a classic Mexican breakfast that consists of fried eggs served on corn tortillas smothered with salsa.

   1. The first step is to make the Ranchero sauce. Heat up some of the vegetable oil in a medium-sized pot. Add in the onions, cayenne, jalapeno and garlic and stir it for about a minute. Depending on your taste for chili, you can add the chili power and peppers along with the salsa sauce. Then you have to add the tomatoes and their juices in the pan by breaking them up with your hands and again, cook and stir for about 2 minutes. Add the chicken stock and let the whole mixture simmer in the pan for around 15 minutes.

   1. Now it's time to prepare the tortillas.  Heat up the oven to about 150 degrees Fahrenheit and place the serving plates inside to warm them up. Use the remaining vegetable oil over a medium-heated pan to cook the tortillas one by one until they start to brown, each side should be ready in about 30 seconds. When a tortilla is ready, place it in the warming plates in the oven to keep them warm while you continue cooking.

   1. Fry the eggs with the same pan used for the tortillas while adding one teaspoons of oil per 2 eggs.

   1. Place 1 warm tortilla on a plate and spread 2 tablespoons of warm refried beans. Place the 2 fried eggs on top of the tortilla and cover them with your warm Ranchero sauce. Ready for immediate serving.
