    Huevos Rancheros:
    1 egg per serving
    1 low-carb or whole wheat tortilla per serving
    1 serving canned chopped green chilis
    2 T fresh salsa per serving (see directions)
    1/4 tomato, chopped fine
    1/4 medium onion, chopped fine
    1/4 Anaheim or jalapeno pepper, depending on taste, chopped fine
    1/4 garlic clove, minced
    juice of 1/4 lemon
    1/4 T lemon zest
    1 T finely chopped fresh cilantro


Both salsa and rancheros recipes are calculated for 1 serving, but easily expanded to accomodate more. Like salsa? Make a larger batch and keep in the fridge for seasoning all sorts of things during the week!

Mix together tomato, onion, chili pepper, garlic, lemon juice, lemon zest and cilantro. Reserve 2 T per serving for this recipe, and refigerate the rest for later use.

Huevos Rancheros:
In a dry (no oil) non-stick skillet, brown tortilla on each side. Place on a plate, set aside. In small saucepan, combine green chiles and salsa, place over medium-low heat just to warm sauce. In same skillet used for tortillas, use cooking spray for egg(s), or can cook without. Cook egg to desired doneness (I love over-medium for this dish!) Once cooked, slide over tortilla, cover with warm sauce, and enjoy!
