Light Huevos Rancheros
I wanted to make a fresh salsa for this post and then use it as my excuse to have a bag of chips and salsa for dinner… but I’ve promised myself (and that new little black bikini still in my top dresser drawer) no bread, chips, pasta or heavy carbs until my vacation starts.
Huevos Rancheros was where I went instead. Black beans, an egg, avocado, salsa and hot sauce, yum. I skipped the feta cheese, sour cream and tortilla to cut the carbs and saturated fat. Isn’t it colorful?
Have I ever mentioned how much I love hot sauce?
I’m not one of those people who put it on everything, but close enough. In my previous post I mentioned green pepper sauce. For my Huevos Rancheros I used Cholula Hot Sauce. Look even the makers of Cholula think it goes well on ranch style eggs.
I have even heard that making your food spicier helps you lose weight. I’m sure it’s not true, but I like the idea. Bring on the Cholula!
1 tomato, diced
1 quarter large red onion, diced
1/2 garlic clove, minced
3 tablespoons lime juice
Cholula Hot Sauce (optional, but so good)
Mix your first six ingredients in a bowl and set aside. Heat up your black beans and use them as a bed for your fried egg. Slice up your avocado for a topping and spoon your freshly made salsa on top as well. Finish with Cholula and serve immediately.
