Mexican Eggs and Rice

Recipe by appleydapply
READY IN: 10mins




  • Reheat your cooked, leftover rice.
  • Meanwhile, heat the oil or bacon grease in a nonstick skillet over medium heat.
  • Grate the cheddar so it will be ready when your eggs are.
  • Fry the egg to the your preferred level of doneness. I really like it with the yolk still runny, so when you cut into the egg on your plate, the yolk mixes with the rice and salsa. This takes about 2 minutes cooking on the first side, then I flip it over and cook for about 20-30 seconds on the other side.
  • Spoon the rice onto a plate.
  • Top with the fried eggs.
  • Immediately sprinkle the grated cheddar on top, then spoon on the salsa.
  • If you are making more than one serving, you won't need to add the whole amount of oil to the skillet for the next servings, as some of the oil will still be in the pan.
  • This is an easy weekday breakfast. On weekends when we want a bigger breakfast, we'll also warm up some canned black beans, and tortillas to serve on the side.
