Huevos rancheros with refried beans
Gotta love a spicy, savoury breakfast! Huevos Rancheros (‘ranch style eggs’) is a common Mexican breakfast, which is basically cooked spicy salsa, topped with refried canned beans and a runny egg. In other words, a pack full of vegetable goodness and good proteins to start your day! It takes about 15 minutes to make, and it is one my favourites for brunch on a holiday.
The original recipe uses jalapenos or some other rustic Mexican peppers, so here's a version that is more Malaysia-friendly.
This recipe serves 2.
Here’s what you need:
1 red onion
1 clove garlic

2 handful canned beans (Black beans, Berlotti, or any type that will mash easily)
Here’s what you do:
*If you don’t have any mild chili paste, what you can do is chop some red chili or green chili to substitute.
