Elizabeth Carrion: Fast and Easy Huevos Rancheros

Authentic huevos rancheros are prepared with fried corn tortillas and fried eggs. In this version, we reduced the cholesterol intake by simply warming whole wheat tortillas and boiling the eggs.


• 8 eggs, hard boiled
• 8 whole wheat tortillas
• 8 slices, serrano ham
• 8 slices, swiss cheese
• Salsa, store bought or fresh


1. Boil eggs in salt water. When ready, cut into ½ inch slices.
2. Layer each tortilla evenly with ham and cheese.
3. Microwave for about 20 seconds (or just enough to melt cheese).
4. Top with sliced eggs.
5. Add a tablespoon of salsa.
6. Wrap and enjoy with your favorite side dish.
