After starting to make tortillas, huevos rancheros was only a matter of time. Spring is prime egg season, and the hens are all laying eggs. I make lots of dishes with eggs this time of year: deviled eggs, pickled eggs, custard, sponge cake, and Ken made a souffle for my birthday. Huevos rancheros is a combination of ingredients with a focus on tortillas and eggs. Here is what I did:
Heat the tortillas
Spread with homemade cream cheese
Add a meat/bean layer - I used our beans cooked with pork in a spicy sauce with onions and garlic
Top with basted eggs, chopped parsley, Ken's hot sauce, and crumbly homemade cheese
Sauerkraut is a traditional food; people salted food to preserve the food and its nutrition. Sauerkraut from the crock that has not been heat processed contains all the original vitamin C with a bonus of new lacto- fermented probiotics. People who do not eat dairy often use lacto-fermented also known as cultured vegetable to promote healthy digestion.
Once in a while I even cook sauerkraut for a change of pace. I saute onions, add the sauerkraut and simmer a few minutes. I also stuff poultry with sauerkraut; it tenderizes the bird, and adds great flavor.
