Huevos Rancheros and Salsa Fresca

Q: Is this for breakfast, lunch or dinner???

Alright, so this is my second time making this dish. What I like about this particular one is that it's really really simple and fast to make. There's no roasting, or stirring, just crack egg on the tortilla and voila. Okay, it's not that simple. First off what I would like to recommend to my friends and family is that homemade salsa is not hard to make and it tastes sooooo good. Two tomatoes, a lime, some onion, and a jalapeno, that's all. If you happen to have a chopper (that is what I call them) it's even easier.Now doesn't that salsa look like it is just begging for a blue corn chip to dive in and ravish it?

The answer is yes! So, go ahead and chop those toms for pete's sake.
*Don't eat all of the salsa fresca btw. You need it for the huevos, I know it's hard, but you can do it.

To make the huevos, first have a fair amount of cheese grated and ready to apply to the tortilla. Oil or grease a pan as well. Place the tortilla in the pan. When the side directly on the pan begins to brown, flip it over. Next sprinkle cheese on top of the tortilla. Grab an egg, or two depending on the size of the tortilla. Crack it directly on top of the tortilla. As soon as the egg begins to whiten at the egdges, flip that sucker over. WARNING...it will be messy, it won't look pretty, but it will taste delicious. Usually it takes about a minute to two minutes for the egg to cook. And that's about it. Heat up some black beans, or just use some Salsa Fresca to dress it up.
