Huevos Rancheros(Eggs Rancho)

Eggs Ranchero(Huevos Rancheros)

Just a quick little recipe. Made this for breakfast today for hubby thought I would share.


INGREDIENTS: Serving: 1

  • 4 eggs
  • 2 Roma Tomatoes
  • 1/3 White Onion
  • 1 Jalapeño seeded and deveined
  • Little bit of Cilantro for topping
  • 4 Corn tortillas
  • Refried beans

1.First take and chop your tomato, onion and jalapeño and add it to your blender. Hopefully this step kind of basic I didn’t take pictures of that part.

Might need to add some water if it’s not blending well into a liquid. After it’s all blended add it to a pot to slowly cook it’s a deep red.

Tomato sauce for eggs ranchero

When it’s almost to this reddish color you can fry your eggs. You want to fry your tortillas a little bit so they are not soft, just slightly stiff. Brush with lard or put a little oil in the pan before you warm the tortillas.

After the tortillas are fried a bit. Add the beans,( warm them up) on top of the tortillas. Like on the picture.

Then you add your eggs then sauce over the eggs. Put cilantro on top. You can add a little Mexican crumble cheese on top if you would like also.

I added two tortillas then two eggs on top of the refried beans. You do not need two tortillas, this is just how my husband likes it. He eats his tacos with double tortillas also.

Hope you enjoyed this short little recipe today. Have a great day or night and please..stay safe.

Japanese Fried Chicken Wings

Yes I know this is not mexican however this has always been a big hit in our home and I thought I would share it with you.

I found this recipe about 10 years ago online and have not been able to find the exact one again. I found some that are close, but they are not the same one that I had found years ago. I had even wore out the page in my recipe book that I had to do it from memory. So I hope that you enjoy this as much as we do.

Ingredients:

  • 3 pounds chicken wings
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour for coating
  • Oil for frying

SAUCE:

  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • ½ cup white vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup Oyster Sauce*

Directions:

  • Step 1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • Step 2 Dip wings in egg and coat with flour.
  • Step 3 Heat oil in a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat. Fry wings until deep brown. Place in a shallow roasting pan.
  • Step 4 In a small saucepan combine soy sauce, water, sugar, vinegar, garlic powder,salt and oyster sauce (to taste.Some like more, some like less, I believe this is what makes this so good). Bring to a boil, Pour over wings.
  • Step 5 Bake in preheated oven for 30 to 45 minutes, basting wings with sauce often.

Let cool and serve with white rice and vegetable of your liking. The reason you fry it first with the flour is for the sauce. You want the sauce sticking to the flour coating while it is baking. You can add a little thickening agent if you want to help it stick better. *I believe the oyster is the secret ingredient here. This sauce makes the whole recipe. * ( This is my opinion, once you try it I bet you will think the same.)

Give it a try I hope that you like this as much as our family does. Whenever I look up the recipe I can not find any with oyster sauce. This is the one ingredient that is missing from all the ones I have looked at online.

Just so you got an idea what you are looking at in the pictures. The first one is the chicken frying of course. Than the next is the chicken draining while waiting on the sauce to boil. The next one is the sauce.( I used roasted garlic powder that is why you see the things floating). The last picture is the finished chicken. This is after it has been cooked in the oven with the sauce over it.

A Spicy Cooking Salsa

Well today I’m going to change it up a little it and do a food post. Hope that you like spicy. I know as for myself I can not handle spicy anymore. I use to eat hot food and hot cheetos like they weren’t anything years ago. But my acid reflux says nope you can not eat the good stuff anymore. So just stuck cooking it for my family now which I don’t mind as long as they enjoy it.

Let me remind you these are just how we make things in our house. So by no means are they authentic. Some recipes I will try to get as close to authentic as I possibly can. And others I just put together what I have on hand in the house. That being said, on with the recipe.

  • 1 Chile Arbol
  • 1 Chile Nuevo Mexico
  • 5-7 Chile Pasilla
  • 1-2 tomatoes*see notes*
  • quarter of a white onion* see note*
  • 1-2 garlic clove
  • water from boiled items

Fill a medium size pot fill around half full of water. Then you want to add all the chiles listed along with your tomate, onion and garlic cloves. The 1 or 2 gloves is just to your taste. I usually add 2 myself. Then you are going to bring all these items to a boil then shut off heat and let cool down to be able to put in your blender.

Once the items are cooled off then you will need to add them to your blender, you don’t want to add it still boiling because you need to use some of the water from the boiled items in your blender so it should not be boiling. Some people do add it boiling, so that would be your choice. *the tomatoes is 1 or 2, depending if you want it little more spicy and less on the tomatoey side or little less heat and little more watery. If you use 2 tomatoes you also use less water from the pot.* *As for onion, you can use yellow or white onion which ever you have one hand, and you could add a little more if you like. These recipes are designed to make for your liking*

Once items added blend adding the boil water as needed to the consistency you would like. I make mine a little watery not much, because I cook my food in this salsa, so some the extra water has some room to evaporate a bit while cooking with the food.

Then you can pour it in a pan with steak, chicken, pork chops and even ribs. This is a versatile salsa and can go with almost anything and can be made to your liking. So go ahead play with it a little bit and enjoy your nice spicy food with sauce in the end.

Well hope you enjoyed this little recipe. More money posts and food post to come. Have yourself a great rest of your weekend. Til then stay safe.
