Mexico - #6

Thanks to my sister, Kristine, for some of tonight's commentary:

Para la cena esta noche, combiné algunas cosas para hacer mi propia versión de Huevos Divorciadazos. La comida se derive de Huevos Rancheros pero parece más interesante. Espero que te disfrutes esta comida divertida y deliciosa por lo cual se puede servir como desayuno, almuerzo o cena. La escritora de esas frases españoles es mi hermana Kristine, quien es una mujer muy bonita e inteligente.

For dinner tonight, I’m combining a few things to make my own version of Huevos Divorciadazos. This meal is derived from Huevos Rancheros, but looks, and tastes, a little more interesting! Huevos rancheros is traditionally fried eggs on top of a tortilla, covered with salsa, then served with refried beans and rice. What makes the eggs “divorced” is they are separated on the plate, and topped with different salsas, and divided by the rice and/or beans. The two salsas used are a traditional tomato salsa, and a tomatillo salsa. I added peppers and onions to this dish too, so I’d have more vegetables. I chose poblanos to go with the tomatillo salsa, and red bell peppers to go with the tomato salsa. I roasted the peppers, peeled them, and sliced them. For the rice, I made cilantro-lime rice, one of my favorite ingredients at Chipotle. I used plain black beans rather than refried, since I had those last night. I hope you enjoy this fun and festive dish, which can be a great brunch, lunch, or dinner!
