    Vicki in CT's Note:

    This recipe was created because I had left over ranchero sauce from Steak Rancheros (Steak Rancheros). Makes a super simple but delicious breakfast/brunch or light supper. Basically poaching eggs in a savory sauce.

    1. 1
      Heat sauce to simmer in small non stick skillet.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile place cheese on shell and toast until cheese is melted.
    3. 3
      Break two eggs, separating them, into simmering sauce.
    4. 4
      Cover and cook until set (I like the yolk slightly runny). Approximately 3-4 minutes.
    5. 5
      Place cooked shell on place. Top with eggs and sauce. Season if needed but sauce is already seasoned.

      Made a great brunch for me today before I ran out the door! I didn't have a taco shell, so used a whole grain tortilla and put in a 350* oven for about 10 minutes to crisp, simmered the egg in salsa, and used mozzarella cheese. So good and easy too! Thanks Vicki! Made for Everyday is a Holiday tag.
