Hi guys! Here’s the recipe for my version of Heuvos rancheros, which is a great twist to a simple egg breakfast, and it’s perfect for Eid brunch! I’m making it in a few hours (I can never sleep the night before Eid!!) so i’ll update this post with pictures tomorrow, but here’s the recipe so you can make it instead of eating heavy( i know it’s delicious but we need a change!) halwa puri which is the typical Eid breakfast!
Here’s what you’ll need for 8 servings. If you’re making a few dishes, like I am, this is enough for up to 12 people.
8 flour tortillas
1/2 cup milk
salt and pepper to taste
1/2-3/4 cup salsa or taco sauce (if you’re in Pk get Old El Paso)
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup shredded cheese
1/2 cup sliced jalapeños
It’s pretty simple. Just beat the eggs with some salt, pepper, and the milk. In a fry pan heat some oil, about 4 T (it’s a lot of eggs!), and make scrambled eggs. It’s up to you if you like your eggs just cooked or well done. I prefer well done, because i’m not a fan of eggs unless they’re boiled.
At this point it’s your choice. If you want, you can mix the salsa directly into the eggs. I usually drizzle it over the eggs though.
You basically have to place 1/8 of the eggs in the center of a tortilla and top it off with salsa and 1/8 of the shredded cheese.
Then roll it up like a burrito and place it in a oven proof dish. Roll up all of the tortillas and place them side by side. Pop them in your oven for about 5 minutes, just so the cheese melts and the tortilla gets a little crispy. You can just put them under the grill for a couple of minutes, but if do, keep an eye on them because burn very quickly!
Top them off with some cheese before baking because they’ll look better after being baked, and there’s no such thing as too much cheese in breakfast! I added some chopped red bell pepper for color!
Then just top the rolled up burritos with sour cream and jalapeños. You can even sprinkle some extra shredded cheese on top for presentation, and chop up some green onions if you want, but who it’s not necessary.
This is a good way to serve Heuvos Rancheros when you’re making it for a large group of people. If not, then you can keep the tortilla open, and instead of putting the eggs in the center, you can spread it all over, and same with the salsa and cheese. Then bake it and top it off with sour cream and jalapeños, and it’ll look like a breakfast pizza! (Like how they serve it at CTC in Lahore!)
You can also add chicken. All you have to do is sauté some chicken with onions in some taco seasoning!
