Food: Simple Huevos Rancheros.

Huevos Rancheros for one is a quick and simple breakfast to whip up for yourself.

I love eggs in the morning. I also love eggs with any variety of hot sauce. Some may say that the colors of the red sauce and the yellowy eggs really compliment each other – but let’s be honest people, that’s not what attracts me. It is the compliments of flavors..yes the colors look lovely but I really care about what is happening in my mouth. Rambling…

Check out those layers.

  • black beans with jalepenos, warmed

  • scrambled eggs (2 per person is a nice portion)

1. To assemble, plate corn tortilla on a plate, layer beans, green chile and a sprinkle of feta cheese. Bake/broil or microwave for a few seconds. Then top with scrambled eggs, another sprinkle of feta cheese and another spoonful of green chile. Top with sour cream, chives and hot sauce.

2. Enjoy warm with coffee in the morning sun.

Food: Sriracha uncovered.

It’s 6 degrees outside and I’m thinking about hot sauce. I just made a two egg omelette and plopped a few drops of this sauce on top. Heaven. It adds the prefect amount of heat without sacrificing the taste of the ingredients. Yum.

I used to quickly dismiss this condiment.

I’m not a fan of having my mouth burn with spicy heat flavors that consume the taste of the food. Oh, what was I thinking. After the first time experimenting with this sauce; adding it into my classic mushroom sauce (for steaks and/or roasted potatoes), I turned the corner. I now include it into many of my experiments in the kitchen.

It is made from sun ripen chilies which are ground into a smooth paste along with garlic. So try this on eggs, mix in with mayo, marinades and add to dressings for a little kick. Oh, it’s great in stir-fry’s too!

Check out this great article in Bon Appetit. It will change your life. The hot sauce, that is.
