Black Bean Avocado Huevos Rancheros
The last nine months (or more?) have been really taxing my creative brain. That’s not a bad thing, but my cooking mojo is on a much needed vacation after creating a minimum of three new recipes each week for months while working on a way cool project. As a result, my site has some much needed maintenance that needed attention so I’ve been spending time updating the static blog pages and improving the “Shop” pages to make it easier for all of you to find and shop the kitchen gadgets and ingredients I use on a regular basis. In the meantime, I’ve posted a bit less often and have really needed to fall back on easy no-brainer meals like these black bean avocado huevos rancheros.
Huevos rancheros is a Spanish word meaning “rancher’s eggs.” The base of this hearty breakfast (or lunch) is eggs, traditionally served over tortillas, refried beans, rice, avocado slices and a red sauce. I’ve eliminated the rice and corn tortillas in this recipe to be lower in carbs but feel free to toss them back in if you wish. I also swapped the refried beans for black beans alongside a chopped avocado and then smothered with easy enchilada sauce. Combining eggs, black beans and avocados is the perfect breakfast trifecta providing protein, fiber and healthy fats to keep you satisfied until lunch.
Soon, my friends, I’ll be all caught up and back to posting once a week with amazingly awesome recipes. Also, stay tuned for the big announcement on the project I’ve been working on in the next few weeks!
