Huevos Rancheros

August 8, 2018

I love Mexican food.  I think it started with my first job at Taco Mama's restaurant.  I worked with 2 wonderful ladies that taught me how to count money, cook, take care of people and it was just a fun job.  Later I brought in sister Julie and then Jeanette and I think even Jan.....I cant remember.  I was 15 and I do remember I loved the cooking side of the operation.  Just a little hole in the wall in downtown Kirkland, with a line out the door in the summer time.

With less carbs in my life its a challenge not having the corn tortillas that I love. I woke up hungry and went thru the frig and pantry and came up with this healthy version of Huevos Rancheros.

 

1 link chorizo

1 pound ground turkey

1/2 red onion

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp chili powder

1/4 tsp red pepper flakes

1/8 tsp cayenne pepper

1 tsp onion powder

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp salt

1 avocado

1/2 cup cherry tomato's cut in half

1 zucchini, diced

1 can southern style pinto beans (I found these Bushes beans that have no sugar added)

4 eggs 

 

1. brown chorizo, onions, and ground turkey, add all the spices, then add diced zucchini, mix well, let simmer 8-10 mins

2. fry eggs sunny side up, I do this on very low heat and cover, so they cook well, salt and pepper

3. warm up beans, cut tomatoes and avocado 

4. put a spoonful of beans on plate, then your ground turkey mixture, egg on top, then add tomato's and avocado

5. Enjoy, add some hot sauce or cheese if you like
