Healthy In A Hurry: Skillet-Poached Huevos Rancheros

 

This Healthy In A Hurry recipe is another completely balanced meal when  you serve it with whole wheat tortillas. It’s very quick and easy to make, and it has a little zing too! Prep time is literally about five minutes, and total cook time is about 10 minutes.

Most huevos rancheros recipes require you to cook in oil and use a lot of cheese. This recipe has neither, but it still has plenty of flavor.

As always, I’ve added a link at the end, so you can download the recipe and try it tonight!

 

Skillet-Poached Huevos Rancheros

Ingredients:

1 16 oz. jar salsa (mild, medium or hot – depending on your preference)

1 15.5 ounce can black beans, rinsed to remove excess sodium

4 large eggs

Kosher salt and black pepepr

2 scallions, sliced

1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

4 small whole wheat tortillas, warmed

1/2 cup fat free sour cream

Directions:

1. In a large skillet, combine the salsa and beans and bring to a simmer.

2. Make 4 small wells in the bean mixture. One at a time, crack each egg into a small bowl and slide it gently into a well. Season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

3. Cook, covered, over medium heat, 3 to 5 minutes for slightly runny yolks.

4. Sprinkle with scallions and cilantro. Divide among 4 plates and serve with the tortillas and sour cream.

Serves 4.

As always, I encourage you to change the recipe to suit your family’s tastes. If you don’t care for black beans, try red kidney or even refried beans. And although you will get plenty of vitamins from the salsa, scallions, and cilantro, you can also add other vegetables to make a heartier meal. Red peppers or even carrots add a nice flavor to this dish.

I hope you’ll try this healthy version of traditional huevos rancheros. Let me know what you think! 🙂
