Huevos Rancheros Recipe - Low Carb & Healthy

Low carb recipe for Huevos Rancheros which belongs to the Eggs and Dairy recipe category.

Ingredients Needed

  1. 1 tablespoon (14 g) butter or oil
  2. 2 eggs
  3. 3 tablespoons (49 ml) salsa (hot or mild, as you prefer)
  4. 2 ounces (55 g) Monterey Jack cheese, shredded

Cooking Instructions

Spray a heavy skillet with nonstick cooking spray and set it over medium heat.

Add the butter or oil and crack the eggs into the skillet.

Turn down the heat and cover.

Let the eggs fry for 4 to 5 minutes.

While the eggs are frying, warm the salsa in a saucepan or in the microwave.

When your fried eggs are set on the bottom but still a little underdone on top, scatter the cheese evenly over the fried eggs, add a teaspoon or two of water to the skillet, and cover it again.

In a minute or two, the tops of the eggs should be set (but the yolks still soft) and the cheese melted.

Transfer the eggs to a plate with a spatula, top with warmed salsa, and serve.
