Guess what? I am currently in Mexico, soaking sunshine in my bones and digging my toes in the sand. It’s awful…really! Seriously though, I’m taking a short vacation and will be back in a few days. When I return, I’ll give you guys all the juicy deets—promise! We’ve had this vacay planned for awhile and I found an ahhh-mazing deal for it online, which I’ll also explain soon.
In my other life, I was totally a travel agent.
In the meantiiiiiiiiiiiiiime….how about a huevos rancheros wrap? And maybe a la paloma? It is Friday, after all.
This is totally one of those “recipes” that isn’t really a recipe at all and to be totally honest, I feel a little silly even posting this when it’s just something I make for lunch for myself on pretty much a daily basis.
Okay, maybe not daily basis…but definitely three-times-a-week-basis.
Ever since my neighbor turned hair stylist (yes, you heard that right) gave me some farm fresh eggs, I’ve been a total egg monster. Scrambled eggs for breakfast, huevos rancheros wraps for lunch, omelets for dinner…I’m on a roll and cannot be stopped.
If you have been reading this blog for more than three days, you know about my obsession with cilantro. I ADORE cilantro! But did you know that some people actually have a genetic aversion to it? To them, it tastes just like soap.
My biggest issue with making these wraps is rolling them up after I’ve overstuffed them with eggs, beans, salsa and avocado. You’d have thought I would have learned my lesson by now, but I’m still rollin’. And rollin’…and rollin’….
But when you wrap it up tightly in tin foil, it becomes the perfect little portable meal to go! I love when things work out like that.
Have a wonderful weekend, friends!
Huevos Rancheros Wraps
makes 4 wraps
4 large whole grain tortillas
1 bunch cilantro
1 15-oz can black beans, drained and rinsed OR homemade!
1 bunch cilantro, minced
oil or butter to fry eggs
Heat oil or butter over medium high heat. Add eggs and fry until cooked through (you can either scramble or keep the yolks whole).
Heat the tortillas, then layer black beans, fried eggs, salsa, slices of avocado and cilantro in each. Be careful to leave room so you can wrap up your tortilla!
