Food: Huevos Rancheros

I haven’t done a food entry in a while.  So here’s what I’m cooking for dinner tonight:


…Huevos Rancheros, which to my understanding is a spicy egg and bean dish served on a tortilla (at least, that’s what I’ve gleaned from looking at the picture and reading the ingredients list).  I have been trying to find more healthy evening meals that aren’t going to leave me feeling short of energy, like quite a lot of ‘diet’ foods do because all the real nutrition has been removed.  This recipe is actually from Runner’s World and features in their running manuals and on their website HERE.  It’s full of protein and good fats.  The really great thing about it is that it’s quick (10-12 minutes) and simple (only heating and chopping really) to prepare, so is a good choice when you’re feeling like you have hardly any time to prepare food after a long day at work and a post-work run.

(NB it would probably be even quicker if I didn’t insist on using every pan in the kitchen thus creating more washing up than really necessary)

Here’s mine:



Ok, so I’ve managed to hide the tomatoes and refried beans under the eggs and I also went for a margarita over a tomato juice, but I think this counts as a success.  It was also very tasty, though it’s one of those dishes where you probably have to make it a few times, adjusting the level of chilli, before you get it quite how you like it.  I knew mine was just the right type of spicy by the fact the cats took one smell and sauntered off without even one attempt to steal a bit.  I will definitely be having this again  🙂
