Vegetarian Huevos Rancheros- Gluten Free and Dairy Free

Another quick fix meal for breakfast, lunch, dinner or snack time that is gluten free and dairy free.  The key is to have already made the corn tortillas, refried beans and salsa.  You could of course use some purchased from the store.

The only other ingredient used was 2 scrambled eggs, 1 per tortilla.  Warm your tortilla and heat the refried beans.  I like to layer in the homemade tortilla, the refried beans, eggs then salsa.  This time I used tomatillo salsa.  To change this up you can use black refried beans, tomato salsa, add in bacon, pork, chicken, fish or beef.  The point is to use what you have on hand and make it quick and easy.

    Gina- I am with you on the tortillas. I always try to make extra to keep for later but we usually eat them all as they are cooked. Way too easy to make not to. One day I'll have to do nothing but bake and make tortillas. -Diane

    My husband will love this one. He is always making up tortilla creations. So call me a wierdo, I've made noodles but not tortillas! I need to get on that-any tips?

    Jessie- Wow, noodles sound like a lot of work. Tortillas are very quick and easy. See my post on Turkey Fajitas with homemade tortillas. Here's the link. http://thewholegang.typepad.com/blog/2009/01/turk
    The key is getting the instant corn masa like Masa Brosa. Most grocery stores carry this. Good luck! – Diane

    Corn tortillas are definitely a staple around here. I love using eggs in them. You're right, this is great for any meal.

    I LOVE corn tortillas! I haven't had "homemade" but will definitely give it a try! One of my favorite "sandwiches" with corn tortillas is caramelized onion, fontina cheese, and granny smith apple. Delicious! By the way, I added you to my blog roll :)

    I love huevos rancheros! It’s great that it’s a dish that’s naturally gluten-free. I haven’t made my own tortillas in a long time. They are so good fresh!

    Linda- It’s nice to have a few ingredients that are good go to items like tortillas. Well, unless you can’t tolerate corn. I wonder what quinoa tortillas would taste like? Hmmmm
    Maureen- Wow, your sandwich sounds delicious. If I could eat cheese I’d be all over that. Fontina is so creamy and melts so well. Thanks for adding me to your blog roll!

    Homemade corn tortillas rock. One of our support group families uses a much smaller tortilla press and the tortillas are such a nice size for enjoying just a couple bits of something. Fresh corn tortillas are just a wonderful treat. I'll take mine with eggs and some black bean and corn salsa please. :-)

    Shirley- My tortilla press that I have pictured with the turkey recipe and is large and it also cooks them. I love it. I also have a small tortilla press for flattening if I cook them in a dry pan. Either way they come out the same size. I did manage to make my last batch a little bigger but they were all eaten just as fast!
