Breakfast for Dinner: Huevos Rancheros

I always seem to have a craving for Mexican food. However, when Colin suggested huevos rancheros I was hesitant. I’ve never liked incorporating eggs into my meals other than a simple scramble for breakfast, or fried eggs alongside some toast or an English muffin. However, this turned out very well!

Ingredients:

6 eggs
6 flour tortillas
1/2 can chili
1 can diced tomatoes
1/2 Tablespoon Dried ground ancho pepper, cumin, chili powder, red pepper flakes
Rice a Roni Mexican Rice (optional, side dish) 

Recipe:

1. Fry all the eggs to your preference.

(Be sure to pepper the eggs)

2. Combine chili and tomatoes in a pot and cook on low heat.

3. Add the spices to the chili mixture and cook until liquidy like a sauce.

4. Cook tortillas in microwave or on stove.

5. Place tortillas on a plate, with an egg on each.

6. Drizzle with sauce and whatever other toppings you would like.

7. Plate with Rice a Roni Mexican rice, refried beans, etc.

8. Enjoy!

Pork sloppy joes

Hello everyone!

So I went home last weekend and I was talking to my parents about my food blog. They haven’t really been too into it but when I mentioned sloppy joes my dad seemed interested. I, however, didn’t know that sloppy joes are normally made with beef. Thus this recipe is a little different from the traditional recipe, but here goes! I feel like this is a very American food.

Ingredients:

1 lb. ground pork (thawed)
1/4 cup minced onions
1/4-1/3 cup grated Pepperjack cheese
1 teaspoon (or so) BBQ sauce
Sriracha (to taste, maybe 1/2 teaspoon)
Cumin (to taste, 1/2 teaspoon)
Chili powder (to taste, 1/2 teaspoon)
Lemon juice (to taste, 1/3 teaspoon)

Optional: Hamburger buns

Recipe:

1. Grate your Pepperjack cheese.

2. Mince the onion.

3. Add your pork to the pan, breaking it up into small, separate pieces and browning it on both sides.

4. Add the onion and lemon juice.

5. Add chili powder and cumin and stir.

6. Add your Sriracha and mix.

7. Add your BBQ sauce of choice and mix.

8. Plate your sloppy joe on a hamburger bun and enjoy!
