Black bean interpretations: irreverent huevos rancheros

October 18, 2009



  • 1 can of black beans
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1 green pepper (or bits and pieces of several, of different colors)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tortillas
  • salsa
  • your favorite seasonings


  • 1 tomato
  • sour cream
  • cilantro
  • cheese
  1. Saute the onion and pepper for 5-7 minutes; add the partially drained black beans.  (Yes, partially drained!  Don’t be afraid of that mysterious liquid; I promise you will be pleasantly surprised.)  Season with something interesting, like paprika or cumin.  Simmer for 5-7 minutes.
  2. Hollow out 2 holes in the beans and drop an egg directly into each.  Cover; cook for 3-4 minutes.
  3. Serve beans+egg on a warm tortilla, with salsa, and decorate in any way that makes you happy.  Best enjoyed with October sunshine and a handsome husband.
