Johnny got this one all the way from Mexico. The unused Ranchero sauce will keep in the refrigerator for over a month.

Enjoyed the ranchero sauce very much. Used 1 cup drained canned petite diced tomatoes and almost 2 jalapenos, and ended up with 1 cup of medium-spiced sauce. Next time I will warm the tortilla, use cheddar cheese instead of Monterey Jack, and use scrambled egg instead of a sunny-side up fried egg; then I can wrap it up and each like a breakfast sandwich. We ate 2 so the remaining sauce and petite diced tomatoes will flavor rice. Made for Please Review My Recipe.
