I think I have found my favorite breakfast meal…..ever! I have heard of Huevos Rancheros, but I had never tried them before. Oh wow…they are amazing!! This sauce is so good, that I have used it to top Eggs in a Basket and Chicken Nachos!
Now I told you the other day, that I made these two different ways. The photo above is the traditional Huevos Rancheros with a crispy tortilla. That is what they would look like in a restaurant. These are the pureed sauce Lisa version with soft tortillas…..
because I am a rebel and I like eating with my fingers. 🙂 I have told you many times now, that I do not like chunky sauces. So, I blended the sauce with an immersion blender…..
Perfect! This sauce has a kick to it, so adjust the Chili Garlic Sauce according to the level of heat that you can stand!! 😉 I realize that using Chinese Garlic Chili Sauce is probably breaking some rules, but this is Iowa and I cannot find red chili sauce!
Besides, this sauce is amazing. I use it in stir-fry recipes all of the time. Maybe I should have called these “Fusion Huevos Rancheros”, lol.
Don’t be afraid of the spice, it really isn’t that bad with the 2 Tablespoons of Garlic Chili Sauce…and I am a whimp when it comes to spicy!! The sliced avocado does a wonderful job of balancing out the the flavors and the heat. The Tequila Sunrise was also a nice way to wash away the residual heat.
I made these 3 different times last week, they were that good. The kids were actually teasing me about it. I am sure I will make them again in the future…..near future!
