Heuvos Rancheros with Salsa Verde

Susan from Food Blogga

Makes 4 servings. 

½ cup white onion
1 small jalapeno with seeds
8-10 small tomatillos, husks removed, and quartered
1 tsp canola oil
The juice of ½ lime
1-2 Tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
Salt, to taste
1 (15-oz) can black beans, rinsed

8 eggs
8 (6-inch) corn tortillas

Optional garnishes:
Shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Sour cream or Mexican crema
Additional fresh cilantro
Diced avocado

To make the salsa, preheat broiler. Place tomatillos, onions, and whole jalapeno in an oven proof dish; add 1 tsp canola oil, and toss to coat. Place under broiler for about 10 minutes, or until brown spots begin to appear on the vegetables. Remove from broiler; let cool for a few minutes. Place in a blender; add lime juice, cilantro, and salt. Blend until coarsely mixed.

Meanwhile, heat black beans on stovetop or in microwave.

Beat eggs in a small bowl; scramble on stovetop for 2-3 minutes, or until at desired doneness. Alternatively, you can pan fry the eggs in a little canola oil. It’s a matter of preference.

To heat tortillas, simply place a tortilla directly over the flame of a stovetop burner. Using a pair of tongs, turn it several times to prevent it from burning, until it’s warmed through but still soft to the touch. Keep tortillas wrapped in foil to stay warm until ready to serve. Alternatively, place tortillas in a warm oven (about 250 degrees) for 8-10 minutes, or until warmed through but still soft to the touch.

For each serving, lay two warmed tortillas on plate, top with ¼ scrambled eggs, ¼ heated black beans, ¼ tomatillo salsa, and desired garnishes.
