Huevos Rancheros

I will admit, I had never had huevos rancheros before I made them. They seemed....interesting. Im used to eggs really only being for breakfast, so to put one on top of a corn tortilla and refried beans intrigued me. After trying them I can say, im not in love, but they were good and I can now say I tried them. If you like them and are looking for a healthier version then I think these are for you! You can also sub the refried beans for frijoles de olla, recipe coming soon!
