Huevos Rancheros

Huevos Rancheros

A tasty and relatively easy recipe with a great classic red sauce. The original recipe linked below uses canned chipotles, but this has been adapted to use more dried chiles, as the heat from the canned chipotles overpowers the eggs.

Sauce

  • 4-6 whole dried chipotles (only 2-3 canned)
  • 1/4 cup canola oil, divided
  • 1 small yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 medium cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 (14-ounce) can crushed tomatoes, preferably fire-roasted (such as Muir Glen)
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro leaves and fine stems, plus more for serving

Chicken, Rice and Beans

Chicken Rice and Beans

We originally intended to make this Bon Appetit recipe, but we morphed it to save some time. In the proportions here, this recipe will make two easy week-night meals. The rice and beans can be made the first night and reheated the second. A rotisserie chicken bought on the first night can be reheated in the oven or shredded and "fried" on the stovetop with a bit of olive oil.

Rice
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 medium onion, chopped
