Huevos Rancheros with Queso Fresco

Yields 4 servings


  • 1 (10-ounce) can diced tomatoes and green chiles, undrained
  • 1 (10-ounce) can red enchilada sauce
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

  • 1 (16-ounce) can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
  • Cooking spray
  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 (8-inch) fat-free flour tortillas

Combine tomatoes and enchilada sauce in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 5 minutes or until slightly thick. Remove from heat; stir in cilantro and juice. Set aside.
Place water and beans in a microwave-safe bowl, and partially mash with a fork. Cover and microwave on High for 2 minutes, or until hot.
Heat a large nonstick skillet sprayed with cooking spray over medium heat. Add eggs; cook 1 minute on each side, or until desired degree of doneness.
Warm tortillas according to package directions. Spread about 1/3 cup bean mixture over each tortilla; top each tortilla with an egg. Spoon 1/2 cup sauce around egg; sprinkle each serving with cheese.
