If you have read my blog before you know that our Latino roots are very important to us. We speak Spanish at home and we try to expose our kids to the Latino culture and tradition as much as we can. Cooking is one of the main ways in which I can share with my children what my Guatemalan culture means to me and give them a “real taste” of what life in my home country would be like, even though they rarely get the opportunity to visit. Living in the United States we combine and blend many traditions, just as our heritage is a mix and blend of ethnicities and cultures.

 

The key to a good rachero sauce is fresh ingredients.
The key to a good rachero sauce is fresh ingredients.  The key to an awesome ranchero sauce is adding Kraft Fresh Taste Southwest Three Cheese mix.

 

That is why I decided to use the Kraft Fresh Take Southwest Three Cheese to give one of my favorite dishes, traditional Huevos Rancheros a cheesy makeover. I wanted to create a dish that blended traditions and flavors, just like we do, and make it more attractive for the kids who, I have to admit, are not too fond of the traditional version.  What could be wrong sunny side eggs covered in a freshly made tomato sauce resting on a warm tortilla, I don’t know, but I was determined to turn huevos rancheros into a dish my picky kids could not resist!

 

Chop some fresh tomatoes. Get some Kraft Fresh Take cheese and bread crumbs. Once the ranchero sauce had reached the desired consistency crack the eggs right on top of it. So easy!

Cheesy Huevos Rancheros Skillet Recipe
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 4
Author Paula Bendfeldt-Diaz

Ingredients

  • 8 eggs
  • 10 medium ripe tomatoes
  • 1 onion
  • 1 green sweet pepper roasted, skin removed
  • Kraft Fresh Take Southwest Three Cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • fresh chives for garnish
  • salt to taste

Instructions

  1. Finely chop the onion and tomatoes.
  2. On a large skillet, at medium heat, heat one tablespoon of olive oil and add the onion. Cook for a couple of minutes until the onion turns translucent and the edges start to turn golden.
  3. Add the second tablespoon of oil and add the tomato.
  4. Cook for five minutes, stirring constantly until the sauce is almost, but not quite, at the desired consistency. If you like a thinner sauce add a few tablespoons of water.
  5. Break the eggs right on to the skillet, so they are lying at the top of the tomato sauce. Reduce the heat, cover and let the eggs cook for about two minutes or until they reach the desired doneness. I like my yolks runny, but my kids and my husband like them firm so once the sauce was almost done I transferred a little to a smaller skillet and did mine separate.
  6. Remove from the heat, sprinkle Kraft Fresh Take Southwestern Three Cheese cover and let stand for a one minute just until the cheese melts but the crumbs are still crunchy.
  7. Sprinkle with fresh chives and serve.

 

The Cheesy Huevos Rancheros recipe turned out to be a total success.  I didn’t even mention these where Huevos Rancheros until my kids had devoured them and they just loved the crunchy, cheesy crust that really turned this breakfast dish into the perfect dinner or brunch recipe.

  3. Que rico! Perhaps I will try making this over the weekend – I agree that cheese makes everything better (as does bacon)
