Ingredients
  

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon of water
  • 2 fried corn tortillas
  • 1 cup of warm salsa verde made with poached tomatillos, garlic, jalapeños and cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon of McCormick ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon of McCormick ground black pepper

Instructions
 

  • Make the salsa verde combining all ingredients together in the blender and season with a pinch of salt, McCormick ground cumin and McCormick ground black pepper.
  • Fry the tortillas in a skillet and set aside.
  • Cook the eggs in a skillet using the tablespoon of water, cover until getting a perfectly poached egg
  • Place in a dish the fried tortilla, add some of the warm spicy salsa verde and add the poached egg.
  • Finish garnishing with a cilantro leaf and sprinkle with ground black pepper. Enjoy with a cup of Mexican cafe de olla.

Notes

Cook the sunny side up eggs adding a teaspoon of water for getting a vapor bath, that will allow the eggs to cook perfectly and get a tender yolk finish. It is recommended to use room temperature eggs for better results. The frying of the corn tortilla is optional, you can warm the tortillas on a skillet instead.

But at home, we love salsa verde, made with fresh tomatillos, garlic, cilantro, jalapeños, and seasoned with McCormick® ground cumin and black pepper. Both spices give it a rich smoky flavor, so typical of my Mexican cuisine. The use of the green sauce instead of the salsa roja gives this traditional huevos rancheros a new and delicious flavor twist.
