Huevos Rancheros Wraps

Huevos Rancheros Wraps

Of all the foods I’ve really come to love over the past few years, eggs stand out more than anything else. I frequently wax poetic about my love of runny yolks and the way a fried egg can transform a recipe, but really I’ll take eggs in any way, shape, or form. It’s not that growing up I disliked eggs, they were just never something I considered eating all that often. Breakfast, or breakfast for dinner, was all about the sweet stuff for me. Much as I still love pancakes, waffles, and French toast, it’s the egg dishes that I find myself gravitating toward.

Cooking Light introduced these as a quick and easy breakfast option (especially when you make the salsa the night ahead of time), but we enjoyed these for dinner one busy night. Although the original recipe is posted below, Ryan made a much bigger batch of the salsa, which we enjoyed with tortilla chips on the side. The original recipe serves 4 (one half-wrap for each), but that definitely wouldn’t be enough to satisfy us for breakfast or dinner. Plan on one full wrap per person, and wrap them in foil if you want a less messy way to eat (and/or transport). 

How about you? Are you yay or nay when it comes to eggs?
