A Play on Huevos Rancheros

So I decided that “plain ole” Huevos Rancheros weren’t gonna cut it so decided to switch it up a bit.

The base is still corn tortillas but instead of refried beans I made a salsa of tomatoes, black beans and corn. Instead if a sunny side I just made it over easy. For cheese I used cheddar in place of queso fresco. For a sauce I made an avocado sauce consisting of: avocado, sriracha, lime juice and fat free half and half.

I love it, hope you will too!
