    Sue Lau's Note:

    My husband likes huevos rancheros, and I thought I would make these up as an interesting diversion from the usual eggs he has.

      I used chopped green chilies, queso blanco, and salsa, topped with a few hot pickled pepper slices - yum! Made for ZWT5.

      Great way to serve up eggs. I used a couple premade tostada shells I had and some black bean salsa. Thanks Sue, you Saucy Senorita!

      This was a great breakfast! I used jalapenos and pepper jack cheese to get a nice little kick. The taste was great. Thanks for the recipe for the lovely breakfast treat.
