Mexican Huevos Rancheros

Mexican Huevos Rancheros


Somerset Foodie Huevos Rancheros

Chilli and eggs are a combination that doesn’t always spring to mind here in Somerset, but around the globe they are an absolute staple. The Korean’s top their famous Bibimbap Rice bowls with a fried egg and chilli sauce, the Japanese love to add boiled eggs and chilli oil to a fragrant ramen noodle bowl and devilled eggs - with Italian roots - are generally accompanied with a little Tabasco sauce or chilli powder. The latter has generally slipped away from favour along with the hostess trolley and the electric carving knife.

For me, one of the best egg and chilli combination is the Mexican Huevos Rancheros (ranch eggs) it’s a real celebration of simple flavours that combine to taste amazing. We have all the ingredients you need to make this popular dish, great for breakfast, Sunday brunch or a perfect light lunch. I’ve embellished this classic dish slightly with the addition of the black beans.

We've also created a Huevos Rancheros Recipe Kit Box if you'd like to order the key ingredients in one simple click. 

Ingredients
Serves 4

4 x Sanissimo Tostadas (baked corn tortillas)
4 x Fresh Eggs
1 x 560g can of La Sierra Black Beans, drained
1 x 220g can of Salsa Ranchera
Couple of pinches of cumin Seeds
4 x Fresh tomatoes, finely chopped
A few sprigs of fresh coriander, chopped
Fussels Cold Pressed Rapeseed Oil for frying
Salt

This dish is so simple to put together and so rewarding to eat. Our Sanissimo Tostadas taste amazing and are perfect for this dish, the flavour of the corn really shines through. Of course you could use our classic soft tacos for this and fry them in a pan to crisp them up, but the Sanissimo Tostadas are ready to go. Any left-over tostadas you have will easily get eaten - dipped in guacamole, houmous or anything that takes your fancy.

Start out by dicing up your tomatoes and chopping up the coriander. Then heat a frying pan on a moderate heat (you’ll need two for this recipe), add a little rapeseed oil and then a couple of pinches of cumin seeds. Allow the seeds to sizzle for a few seconds before adding the black beans. Let the beans fry for no more than a minute, whilst you start heating your second pan for the eggs. Once the beans have sizzled and popped a little, add a spoon of the Salsa Ranchera, turn off the heat and leave them in the pan until ready.

Now all that’s needed are the eggs, sunny side up is essential. Fry them in the pan as normal, I also add a pinch of salt to them whilst they’re cooking.

Eggs cooked, beans done, time to plate up. Start with the tostada, pile on a generous spoonful of beans, the egg goes on top and garnish the dish with the chopped tomatoes, coriander and spoon over the Salsa Ranchera.

Enjoy!

Korean Bibimbap
Korean Bibimbap

Until a few years ago, I'd never heard of a bibimbap (pronounced "bee-bim-bap"), then all of a sudden, street food style vendors started popping up all over London offering this famous Korean dish. It's not surprising, in 2017 CNN Travel included a bibimbap in their top 50 World's best dishes. It literally translates as 'mixed rice' and to be honest, anything goes...
Grilled Asparagus with Warm Black Rice Salad, Broad Beans, Confit Tomatoes and Lemon & Garlic Dressing
Grilled Asparagus with Warm Black Rice Salad, Broad Beans, Confit Tomatoes and Lemon & Garlic Dressing

The black rice takes about 35-40 minutes to cook, it's grown in Italy and like wild rice, it has a slightly chewy 'al dente' texture with subtle nutty and vanilla flavours. It's the perfect foil for the assertive flavour of asparagus and with some sweet preserved tomatoes, crisp radish, soft broad beans, fresh herbs and a delicious garlic and lemon dressing, this dish is a total winner.

Pinsa Romana with Artichokes, Burrata Cheese & Toasted Hazelnuts

I'm a massive fan of 'pizza bianca', they really show off the quality of the pizza base and the flavours that you choose to put on top. There is a summery freshness to this recipe, perfect for al fresco dining and sharing with friends - something chilled to go alongside finishes this picture perfectly.
