Huevos Ranchero

About a week ago my husband and I did something on a Saturday that we have not done in what seems like forever, we slept in then laid in bed watching The Food Network. We caught an episode of Paula's Best Dishes featuring her son Jaime, they were doing breakfast food on this show. Jaime treated his mother to his recipe for Huevos Ranchero; we fell in love with this dish. Neither my husband nor I have ever eaten this before; myself I was always afraid that it would be too spicy for me. We loved the components of the recipe but of course wanted to change a few things to make it more Dunkin friendly.

1 Tbs. - Bertolli Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 - Don Pancho Flour Tortilla 10 inch Homestyle
2 - Johnsonville Chorizo Sausage (take off casing)
1/2 - Medium Yellow Onion (diced)
16 oz. Can - Pace Refried Beans
2 - Eggs
1/4 C. - Water
1 Tbs. - Garlic (minced)
1/2 C. - Sargento Artisan Authentic Mexican Shredded Cheese
2 Tbs. - Deli Sliced Mezzetta Peperoncini
2 Tbs. - WalMart Great Value White Corn Black Bean Salsa
2 Tbs. - Butter

Optional Toppings:

Daisy Sour Cream
Pace Guacamole

Texas Pete Hot Sauce

Sauté the onion in EVOO over medium heat until almost translucent then add the garlic, cook until tender about 1-2 minutes. Remove the onion and garlic and set aside, cook the Chorizo for about 5 minutes trying to break the meat up as much as possible. Drain off the excess grease then add back in the onion mixture and cook for another 5 minutes. While the Chorizo is cooking put the water and refried beans into a soup pot over medium heat to warm and thin out. In a 2nd frying pan melt 1 Tbs. of the butter to soften and brown the tortillas. Turn the broiler on, place the tortilla's on a baking sheet then spread half of the refried beans onto each tortilla. Place half of the meat onto each tortilla then cover with 1/4 C. of the cheese on each tortilla. Place under the broiler until the cheese has melted. While you wait for the cheese to melt cook the 2 eggs in the remaining butter just until over medium. Bring the baking sheet out of the oven and place each tortilla onto a plate, then top each with an egg. Top with 1 Tbs. salsa and 1 Tbs. peperoncini, from this point use any other optional toppings you would like.
