‘What I Ate’ is a series of posts for so-easy-this-doesn’t-need-a-recipe but I’m sharing with you for the idea or inspiration.
I took a twist on one of Mr. J’s signature dishes, huevos rancheros. It was good, but I think I might like the regular method better. I whipped out the big griddle to do the quesadilla and egg at the same time.
2 taco-sized tortillas
1/2 cup shredded cheddar, monetary jack, or pepper jack cheese
salsa & guacamole
Spray a large skillet with non-stick spray. Bring heat to medium heat and lay one tortilla down and top with cheese.
Then lay the other tortilla on top.
Cook for about 3 minutes.
Spray top tortilla, and carefully flip the whole quesadilla.
In a separate pan, heat to medium and fry the egg.
Top quesadilla with a sprinkle of cheese.
Serve with salsa, guacamole, and the egg.
I love the yolk with the tortilla and cheese. Seriously, the yolk is like nature’s sauce. I also could eat guac or avocado for breakfast daily. Have I told you lately how much I love savory breakfasts?
I probably will stick to the single layer/traditional way. I think the super crisp tortilla that is almost blistered into crispness is better.
Do you ever do that? Take a regular dish you love and amp it up, only to decide it was better as-is?
I’m so bad at sunny-side-up eggs…. yours looks perfect!!!
