About Me

My photo
i has spent my whole lifes a cookin. i got a early start at it cuz i is the second oldest of nine - thats a big family to cook for. and growin up on a workin farm makes for everbuddy to has a mighty healthy appetite. after i married my man, everett, cookin was a bit easier on me since it was just the two of us and thats when my creativitee really started to kick into high gear. so much so that everett encouraged me to open myself up a diner. that was the funnest time ever to be had by any mortal soul. i kept at that diner thang even when the yung-uns begun to show up. now they is all growed n dear everett is long gone so i has learned in my old age how to cook on a smaller scale as a single wid-der woman. exceptin on wednesday nites - we all has a grate big church social pot luck supper afore bible study down there at the calvary community chapple n thats my chance to still cooks up a storm - it is jest sooo much fun.
my grate grandsun has been a buggin me for some time now to write down all these here recipes that i keeps in my head so that the family can remember me after i leave this earth. he has turned me onto this here blogg thang n now that i has got the hang of it all, i thinks it is a real awesome way to record down thangs.

easy Huevos Rancheros

i learned this yummy recipe
from that cute lil gal
named melissa d'arabian
on that food network tv show

see . . . nobuddy is ever too old
to learn a new trick or two. lol.

6 (5 inch) flour tortillas
3 tbsp butter, melted

salsa (whatever yer flavorite kind. for me, the chunkyer the better)
black beans (i jest used the canned kind, drained in a colander)
green onion, chopped (however much to yer liking)
cracked black pepper
garlic powder
fresh cilantro, chopped

pepper jack cheese, shredded or chunked
6 eggs

sour cream

special equipment: 6 cup large muffin tin (ifn ya jest has the regular sized 12 count tin, trim off some of the edges of the
tortillas so that they stays put).

heat oven to 350 degrees.

spray each muffin tin cup with butter cooking spray.
brush both sides of the tortillas lightly with the melted butter.
press the tortillas into the muffin tin creatin little tortilla cups.

spoon a heapin tablespoon of
salsa into each tortilla cup
n then
a heapin tablespoon of black beans
n then sprinkle each serving with
chopped green onion n cracked black pepper n garlic powder n chopped fresh cilantro.

top with the
pepper jack cheese
n then crack an egg into each of the six cups.

bake until eggs are set, about 12 minutes (i likes them yolks all runny).

note: ifn the tortillas are a gettin a lil bit too browned too fast, cover lightly with aluminum foil.

to serve, spoon a dollup of sour cream n place a sprig of fresh cilantro on top of the eggs
n yer guests will think that you has jest made the biggest to-do for their brunch.
