I was craving Huevos Rancheros but didn't have the stuff. So I made this up. The kids loved it so I thought I'd get it submitted before I forgot what I did! We couldn't think of a name so I just named it after myself. ;) I think it would be a nice brunch dish. This of course can be modified to suit your own tastes. This was a bit zippy with only 1 jalapeno. I used preshredded mexican cheese but whatever makes you happiest will work just fine. I might add some hot sauce next time - jalapeno or chipotle.

The only change I did this time was used summer canned pureed tomatoes. A great come back recipe. Thanks again. ;)

Review May 19, 2009 Spicy good! I made 1/2 the recipe. Sauteed button mushrooms with the onions. I served on a tortilla. Thanks for a great breakfast!

I was looking for something for all the ingredients I had that sounded good to both of us and this is what I made. The only thing I changed was using a chili from my balcony (cayenne) rather than jalapeno. Eggs, tomatoes and chilis really do belong together as you see it so many different cuisines and this recipe blends them perfectly! Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT 8 Family Picks

Delicious! We loved this quick and easy variation of Huevos Rancheros. I used 2 jalapenos and 4-cheese Mexican cheese blend. Also, in addition to the spices listed, I seasoned the tomato mixture with cumin, chili powder, and a pinch of sugar to cut the tart of the tomatoes. I sprinkled additional cumin, salt, and pepper over the eggs, along with the chili powder. I made this in my cast iron skillet, so I put the skillet under the broiler to finish setting up the eggs and melt the cheese. Thank you for sharing this wonderful is definitely a keeper!
