I was reminded this morning of my trip to New York a year ago when I spent new year’s eve at the Americano hotel. the hotel was ok. But the breakfast was indeed, amazing: huevos rancheros.
This is not a breakfast that you want every day, except if you are perhaps a cowboy, marathon runner, or just want as quickly as possible to gain 50 lbs.
The way we see it, huevos rancheros shouldn’t just be salsa-covered eggs. The folks at California’s Kay ‘n Dave’s restaurant agree. That’s why their recipe calls for a homemade salsa and crisply fried eggs, but also tender black beans and rice seasoned with a wealth of tomato, garlic, onion, chile, and epazote, the grassy, delicately pungent Latin American herb often paired with legumes.
That gives you a sense of the thing. Errr … the thing that I still remember more than a year later!
