Huevos Rancheros

This classic egg dish from La Norteña y Cafe Deluxe in El Paso makes one serving, but you can multiply the recipe accordingly. Make the salsa for the Ranchero Sauce first. It will keep in the refrigerator for up to five days. Rather than frying, we poached the eggs and dry-sautéed the tortillas.
