East Coast Bites: Huevos Rancheros Recipe

jpeg-image-9e28bf219ba6-1

I am so excited about the return of East Coast Bites – especially as we get closer to the holidays. Because holiday baking + party recipes are two very important holiday staples.

If you follow me on social media, you’ve likely caught my favorite brunch item to make on the weekends: huevos rancheros. I’ve made the dish a thousand times, but I’d always wanted to try a recipe that was made in a cast iron pan.

Which is exactly what I did for East Coast Bites with this recipe from RelayFoods.

The end result? The most delicious Sunday brunch possible.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 tbsp of butter
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 3 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 15 oz kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 tsp taco seasoning
  • 8 oz taco sauce
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 lb tomatillo salsa, or salsa of choice, slightly strained
  • 1 avocado, pitted and sliced or diced
  • 1 medium tomato, diced
  • 1/2 bunch green onions, chopped
  • 1/8 cup cilantro, chopped to garnish
  • 1/3 cup feta cheese, crumbled

To get started, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

Take a medium to large sized cast iron skillet (I used a medium sized one and chose to use only 3 eggs instead of 4) and heat butter over medium-high heat. Throw in your onions and sauté for 5-7 minutes until tender.

Mince your garlic and add to the pan, sautéing for 1-2 minutes.

Next, stir in your beans and sprinkle your taco seasoning. Add your skillet sauce and mix together. img_0642Next up, create four “wells” in the bean mixture, evenly spaced with your spoon. Carefully crack your eggs into the wells.

When it’s ready, remove your cast-iron pan from your oven and garnish with salsa, avocado, chopped tomatoes, green onions, cilantro, and feta cheese.
